Recently High Risk HPV Diagnoses


I recently attended a Health Assessment, which is part of my Health Insurance. I was offered a smear test and the unfortunately the test has come back high risk HPV. The sample was reported as being obscured by inflammatory exudates. I have been recommended to have a colposcopy, and have an appointment on 17 August (not sure if they will carry out the colposcopy then or it’s an initial appointment). It’s feels like an age away.

When I got the diagnoses, obviously I when into a bit of a meltdown and my mind has been working overtime. I have also been goggling it, there is a lot of helpfully information (and some scary stuff). Thankfully I found this site because I felt what would help me most is talking to someone who has similar symptoms.

Any help will be gratefully received.

Thank you for reading this.

Hey! In the same boat as you and my appointment is the 18th. Shall we have a meltdown together?

Good plan! I’m trying to push it to the back of mind for the time being as I know there is nothing I can do. It’s the unknown, the waiting, not knowing what to expect etc. Mind works overtime if you let it.
