I had my first colposcopy today after my first ever abnormal PAP (last PAP was January 2013). I have high risk HPV, initial PAP showed CINI. Doc took 4 biopsies today, one “way up high where [he] couldn’t see.” He said not to lose sleep over it, but I am concerned as I’ve been having strange symptoms such as burning/stabbing pain in cervix, low back pain, nausea, cramping not associated with period. I guess it is just a waiting now, and he said results should be in in about a week.
Has anyone else had similar symptoms? And is it normal for them to take so many biopsies? It hurt more than I expected, and I have a high pain tolerance. I’m still crampy and sore.
P.s. - I am from the states, but found this forum active and helpful
