My 2nd smear came back as abnormal (low grade changes) and HPV virus was present.
5 weeks on and I am going to have a colposcopy next week. I asked my Doctor why I wasn't being seen straight away and his response was "To see if they change back by themselves". Is this common practice? It's very unnerving personally.
He always said there wasn't a CIN grade attached to my diagnosis as low grade is below CIN 1? When I go to my appointment next week will the biopsy then determine a CIN grade?
I had my mind put to ease after him telling me this but now it seems evident that smears don't determine the grade, just whether an abnormality is present.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
