Hi, Ive posted on here once before and found it helpful. Just feeling a bit sorry for myself this week..
My smear came back abnormal in feb, borderline with high risk hpv. I'd gone to gp several times since Jan with thigh and pelvic pain, periods all over the place etc.
Long story short had colposcopy 14th may. After talking to friends that have had similar, i was expecting dr to just have a look and maybe treat. She seemed to have problem actually getting to my cervix(?!) but once she did i watched on the screen. Putting on the chemicals etc i felt fine, then she said she wanted to take some pictures (told her not my best side,eek lol). Then i heard her tell the nurse she wanted to take a biopsy, she took 3 from different areas, i thought she was finished and she said she wanted to get one more from one particular area, and one more pic. I wasnt expecting all of that. After she said it looks mild but wouldnt know until results. One particular area was very painful when she took biopsy
What has confused me is her actions didnt match her words, if that makes sense, i was watching the nurse and it was like she was watching the doctors face, very odd i thought. As ive had symptoms for a while and am on the wrong side of 30 to (still?) have hpv i'm a little concerned.
Why take so many biopsies and pics if just mild, what not leave alone and or treat then and there..?
Ive had heavy bleeding and pain since, felt okay at the time but past 3 days have not been good, probably shouldntve gone back to work so may be my fault for over doing. I have the tranexamic acid from gp because of irregular and heavy bleeding generally,but everytime i take it it makes me feel dizzy etc.
Im hoping won't have to wait to long for results.. just all a bit confusing.
Best wishes to everyone with whatever they're dealing with, this site is amazing
