Hello everyone :)
I'm new here after finding this forum whilst browsing the web. I've recently not long had a baby (5 months ago) and i had my first smear 2 weeks ago as i'm 24.5 years now. I recieved the results through the post yesterday saying i had severe dyskaryosis and need to book an appointment for a colposcopy.
I have been nervous about having a smear and booked it straightaway as soon i was able to as my Mum was diagnosed with cervical cancer aged 35. She had been bleeding and had been having symptoms beforehand, whereas i have none and i naively believed that my first smear i would be ok.
Since getting the result as its the weekend i haven't been able to talk to anyone about my worries as the doctors aren't open until Monday. I haven't been able to sleep or eat and now have stomach cramps, which is fuelling my anxiety even more.
Please can anyone share some positive stories of this happening to them. I'm so scared i'll be examined and they'll tell me the cancer is too far spead and i won't see my son grow up. He's only 5 months old. Please help me.
