So I just had my first smear (I'm 26) and didnt think anything of it, then I suddenly get a letter in the post saying I have CIN ll HPVand that I need a colposcopy...
I had my colposcopy (which was one of the most horendous things I've had done), more because I was on my own and scared and couldnt see what was going on (not that I wanted to lol), and he opened the speclum far too wide by accident which REALLY hurt me.
Thought THAT was all over and I get another nice letter in the post saying that I had 'a slightly higher than anticipated abnormality' and now I have to go for a 'Loop Diathermy Biopsy'.
I'm totally confused as to what that is, because from some reading it sounds like I'm going for another colposcopy, which I dont see how it
can make any more of a difference, but other reading suggests I'm going to need a local anesthetic to my cervix and they'll take a bigger biopsy.
a)I'm terrified about having a needle down there
b) Confused as to what I'm actually going to have done this time.
I was wondering if anyone could help me as I'm getting in a bit of a state about it this time, after my experience from before wasnt the best.
Luckily my boyfriend is coming this time for moral support.
Thanks everyone :)
