I had a colposcopy examination 6 weeks ago. At the examination the nurse said: "You have HPV all over your cervix" (white areas) and said she would try and remove as much as possible so she took 5 biopsies including one glandular which was blocked (yellow area). She told me the lab will confirm whether in fact there is HPV or not but won’t be able to tell me which type. She wrote to me confirming what had been done, and that she would write to me with the results once they were in with a plan of care. So I got a letter at 6 weeks with no results mentioned…not even the word biopsy or HPV confirmation or not. Seems really shady. Just discharged back to GP. Could they have lost the results? I would have least have expected: “no abnormalities detected, no HPV or something along those lines. What were those white areas then. Why had she caused friction in our house by saying “You have HPV”….we were arguining as any couple might do with this sprung on them after 30 years of marriage. Feel stupid now as I had actually talked to the GP about this and being shocked at being told this. Plus I had 5 weeks of agonizing cramps after the biopsies…have got adenomyosis and I think it aggravated this.
