About this time last year I had an abnormal smear and colp which showed CGIN. Had a lletz and got a letter which said all the abnormal cells had been removed, and discharged me back to my GP for a 6 month follow up smear. This was normal. Soon after that follow up, I fell pregnant.
Here are my questions:
I have seen many people say they are monitored more closely after lletz due to shortening of the cervix. I have spoken to 2 midwives about this and neither are interested. I have only had one treatment but I have no idea how much of my cervix was removed (and nor do they!) Do I/Can I push this any further? Or would you take them at their word that it isn't a problem?
Secondly, I only received a normal smear. Should I have received a 'brush and broom' smear as I had CGIN?? Again, should I follow this up??
Finally, I will be due my next follow up smear when I am about halfway through my pregnancy. Would you have the smear? One midwife has told me not to worry which the other has said it is up to me. I know I wouldn't have treatment, but if it was abnormal at least I could be monitored closely? Having said that, I obviously don't really want the stress for half of my pregnancy. What would you do?!
I think I will talk to my GP about my concerns but thanks to anyone who can help in the meantime. I have also posted this in fertility but not sure that gets much traffic so apologies for the double post.
