I've been reading through this forum A LOT over the last few weeks as I have had some unusual symptoms, and Google always brought me here. Brief history - I had a smear test after my son, and at 22 they picked up that I had CIN3 and HPV. I had a colposcopy and the LLETZ procedure done and thought nothing much of it. Had a very complicated second pregnancy and a clear smear after my daughter was born. In the last few months I have had really heavy periods, here comes an over share - some days I'd need to wear a super tampon, maxi pad and in some instances I'd chuck one of my daughters nappies in as well for extra measure. Completely unlike my usual light periods, so the GP suggested I go onto the implant as it may balance things, and as I'd fallen pregnant on the injection before that was out the question.
Since then, I've been having irregular periods which I put down to the implant, until I started bleeding after sex, and sex became really uncomfortable and at times painful. My husband started to stress a bit too so I thought I’d check it out. The GP sent me for another smear which I waited 2 weeks for, so two weeks of my mind diagnosing all sorts of things for me! I had my smear today and told the nurse my concerns before she did it. She was SO lovely and comforting. She then told me that while she was gathering the sample up there, she spotted a noticeable growth on my cervix and obviously she'd like the doctor to check me out in two weeks when the smear results come back.
That's all well and good, but it means I'll have another two weeks of driving myself crazy with what if's! I know this has now basically turned into a book, but if anyone can share experiences with me that are somehow related - good or bad outcomes - I would be so appreciative. Alternatively if anyone knows of a pill that stops your brain from over thinking for two weeks that would be great as well!
I'll stop rambling! Thanks in advance ladies xxx
