New to this forum. I have many questions. A little background on me and my health.
I am 23 years old. I started having a lot of lower abdominal pelvic area pain and bleeding in between periods around 4 1/2 years ago. I went to a Gyno and asked for a pap which took a lot of convincing since they didn't want to do it because I was not 21. After my first pap it came back abnormal. Gyno asked me to come back for a Colpo. during he saw multiple leisons and took three biopsies. All came back CIN3 borderline 4. He suggested cryotherapy Because I was too young and we wanted to be conservative. 6mos after cryo I went back for pap. Which later came back abnormal, again. After another Colpo and more biopsies. We did another cryo. I moved away and found a new Gyno. She's very very conservative. I have been going back every 6mos to monitor we skip paps and go straight to Colposcopy. ive had the same lesions there since the 2 cryos. ive got severe dysplasia at 9&12 o'clock (moderate/severe) and went back two weeks ago and now I have some on 3&6 o'clock as well. Biopsy says it's mild/moderate. I've been very ambivalent on whether or not to get a second opinion. She has been conservative because she knows I want to start a family soon. I have been with my bf for 5 1/2 yrs and we plan on marrying and starting a family. She told me to go ahead and schedule for 6 months and get another biopsy. I don't know what to do. This has been going on for 4 1/2 years. I feel pain from time to time. Sex is painful, and it seems like this isn't going away it's just "spreading". I'm very confused on what to do. I'm afraid of the LEEP/ cone biopsy because I know my leision is quite large and don't want to have issues with maintaining a pregnancy or even trouble getting pregnant. I hope someone out there has had a similar story to mine and help guide me. I'm not sure if it's time for me to find a new physician or second opinion. Any help will be very very helpful
