So I've just come back from the hospital following my colposcopy.
I actually had a rather horrible experience as the colposcopist was actually quite rude to me and my partner.. Because I am gay she was basically saying that my symptoms were only due because of the kind of sex we must have.. and that my partner must be quite rough with me.. but said she would 'do the colposcopy anyway'.
When she started I could see my cervix on the screen and after she applied the solution my cervix went white and was bleeding when she was swabbing it. She then took a biopsy (ouch!) and kind of apologised, saying that she can see that my symptoms are not because of trauma during sex, and that she suspects I may have pre-cancer cells (but said she didn't think it would be cancer).
I just have a few questions...
1. I had my colposcopy at about 11.30 and it is now 14.30 and I have a bad tummy ache, is this normal?
2. She said that she 'doesn't think it's cancer' so does that mean that I probably don't? At all? Or can you not always tell by looking at the cervix?
I have to wait 6-8 weeks for my biopsy results to come back and I know it's going to be a horrible wait.
