Hello, I have had HR HPV for 13 years which never caused me any problems except borderline changes in all these years. However in 2020 I got CIN 1. At colposcopy they couldn’t see any abnormal cells to biopsy so I had a repeat smear one year later and this was CIN 2. Again at colposcopy it all looked normal and so they took biopsies and these only came back as HPV no CIN. I had thermocoagulation treatment as a precaution and 6 months later a repeat smear again showed CIN 2.
I transferred to two different hospitals for second and third opinions as no one could see these abnormal cells. The third hospital could see some cells and took biopsies which came back CIN 1. The doctor said the cells could be higher up then the biopsy reached so suggested I do a LLETZ to ensure they get everything as he thought the result could be more moderate.
Just had my LLETZ results and again it’s come back CIN 1. What does this mean? Could a LLETZ miss CIN 2? Can I rest assured I likely don’t have CGIN as I was worried this may be causing my problems?
