When I was 19 I started bleeding after having sex, after almost a year of being told it was just hormonal changes I was finally sent to have a colposcopy where they found pre-cancerous cells, which were removed using a laser.
3years down the line and the bleeding is back, being refered for yet another Colposcopy at 21years old. Although a smear test came back recently with no strange cells, I still have HPV and the smear test I had 3years ago was normal. Goes to show problems can still be present even with a 'normal' smear test.
It makes me sad and angry that this is happening to me, again, and that many more girls my age or younger are out there clueless and not being tested.
How many women have to go through this before they finally lower the screening age?
My main reason for posting is I'm scared that this time it's going to be more serious, and even if it isn't I'm frightened this is going to be my life now. Every few years wondering if the C word is looming over my head like some sort of inevitable axe.
Has anyone else had treatment then problems return?
Anyone elses experiences would be appreciated.
