I've never posted on a forum before and feel a bit silly for panicking but I can't help myself!
I'm 25 years old and had my first smear test a couple of weeks ago. I went back to the doctor today to talk about getting my contraceptive implant replaced and while I was there she told me that the results of my smear test were "mildly abnormal" and I would have to be referred to see the gynacologist (hope I spelt that right!!). She said that someone would be in touch to book me an appointment. I know this is silly but I'm really freaking out!
I had basically diagnosed myself with cervical cancer before reading posts on this forum so THANK YOU everyone for all the reassuring posts and comments on here that I have just spent ages reading. The biggest thing I'm now concerned about is can this affect fertlity?? I'm really worried that I'll go for my appointment and they'll tell me that the abnormal cells mean I can't ever have children. Am I being silly? I'm driving myself mad worrying about it!
I'm now just waiting to be given an appointment with the gynacologist.
Any input/advice would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance :)
