Positive HPV & significant cells

Hi everyone

I’m 25 and went for my first smear test a few weeks ago. I got my results today, I have HPV & high grade dyskaryosis. My GP said I had “significant” changes to my cells. I’ve been referred for a colposcopy appointment in 48 hours… just found this forum and seen some people wait over 30 weeks for this appointment so I’m feeling terrified.

Feel quite lost. I had the HPV vaccine as a kid and never understood it was similar to an STI and I could catch it. Feel so annoyed with myself :frowning:

Hi @Magicstar,
Please try not to worry, different areas/regions have different waiting times for colposcopies to be carried out.
Wishing you all the best for your appointment. X
