Hi everyone. I'm a newbie. I had an abnormal result 7 years ago and had LLETZ treatment and have been clear ever since....well until my smear in February. I got a normal smear result but positive for HPV (my first hpv test) so I was sent to colposcoy. Waited 8 weeks for my appointment so figured it wasn't urgent as they were not rushing to see me. Got into colposcoy and she explained the new hpv screening to me......anyway upon inspection I have a large suspect area...I had biopsys and she's explained if I need treatment it will be under general anesthetic as the area is so large......I am confused as to why my smear result was normal if I have a large suspect area??? Has anyone else experienced this?
Thankyou ladies xxx
