Hello everyone, I am sorry you are here and reading this because it means you are going through uncertainty and perhaps fear/worry.
I had an abnormal smear result last September after having cin 1 diagnosed a few years prior. Although it didn’t look bad biopsy result came back as cin3 so I had the lletz treatment- which I didn’t want and was frightened of.
Lletz was not bad, just uncomfortable with the speculum like smears, I didn’t actually feel anything. I healed pretty well after- started bleeding at 8 days post and with my period amongst it bled for just over 2 weeks mild-moderately.
Lletz result was cin1.
I’ve just had my smear results- normal cells and no HPV. I am beyond grateful and my thoughts are with those of you who don’t get this news.
As well as having lletz I saw a homeopath, had reiki- learnt reiki, did yoga, meditated, journalled and went to counselling. I take b12 and folic acid and vitamin D. Im also vegan. I mention all of this not because I know for sure it helped but because doing it felt right for me to heal. Listen to the doctors but also listen to you- what do you need. I also read a lot of research about what can cause HPV not clearing and cervical dysplasia, lackof b vitamins. I also drank green tea.
Sending lots of love and understanding to anyone going through a difficult time. Be kind to yourself xxxxxxxxxxxx
