I have done alot of reading on this forum but today I actually joined.
I am a lesbian, I'm 30. 11 years ago my first girlfriend discovered she had CIN3 not long after we got together. I remember asking the doc at the time could hpv be passed to me and the doc told me no there was no way, I was safe. I've had about 5 smears since then and every one came back borderline. Until my last one in 2019 which was abnormal. The only reason I went for this smear was after I met my partner in march 2019 the first time we had sex I bled all over the bed. I went for a colposcopy and was told I had CIN3. I had the LLETZ procedure in October 2019. I was to have a follow up colposcopy in April 2020 but that was cancelled due to covid.
My partner has been battling an underactive thyroid for the last year so our sex life had taken a back seat until now. The last 2 times wev had sex I've bled. I'm booked in for a smear 2 days from now and I'm considering cancelling it because I would really rather not know if something is wrong.
Part of me wants to believe I've been bleeding after sex because it had been around a year since we had any, but I've also been having bloody discharge between periods for the past 5 months so most of me is thinking my CIN3 is back.
I had no idea hpv was so easily transmitted between lesbians so now I'm really worried for my partner cuz she has an underactive thyroid so her body won't be able to fight it off as well as a healthy person. I feel so ashamed and disgusted with myself for even catching this to start with.
Has anyone else had a similar problem with CIN3 recurring?
