Newbie here! I was hoping you guys might be to help me with understanding what happens next..
I went to the doctor originally as I was having some bleeding between periods which really isn't like me. I had already had one smear a couple of years ago (I'm 28) which came back as normal but my doctor recommended that I have another one. I got the results back and they said I had some mild cell changes which needed investigating and a colposcopy.
I went for the colposcopy where they did two punch biopsies and I've just got the results back after waiting 5 weeks (felt like a lifetime!) and they say that I've got CIN 2 and need treatment. I have an appointment in two weeks but I'm not sure what they are going to do as it doesn't say in the letter.
I've had a look online (dangerous to be googling but I need hate not knowing) and it sounds like LLETZ is the most common procedure - does that sound right? Do they actually look at the tissue they've removed and if so, is it possible it could be more advanced than CIN 2?
Trying not to worry too much but I don't know if this is quite common to have and routine or whether it's quite serious and could potentially get worse. It also worries me a bit that it's progressed that quickly - could it have got worse in the last 5 weeks (and the next two) too?
Feel a bit clueless at the moment so if anyone could share their knowledge/experiences I would appreciate it :)
Thanks ladies!! :)
