I went for my smear on 14th Feb. The nurse was concerned as there was bleeding before she even took the swabs. She asked me to see my GP. I was very sore after the smear, cervical pain like cramps for few days.
When I saw the GP on 17th feb, she took more swabs and gave me antibiotics. Said she wanted me to be seen by Gynae. Got my gynae app for colposcopy a week or 2 later. As far as I know he just had a look and didnt put stanins etc on the cervix. He said it looked like an erosion/ectroption but was going to hold my notes until smear came back.Since then Ive spoken to the nurse who told me my smear shows borderline nuclear changes and also high risk HPV. Im now waiting to see the Gynae Doc again.....worrying times. I do have post-coital bleeding, spotting between periods, periods have gotten longer and clotty in last month or 2. Also have been suffering with lower back pain which feels like period pain for a couple of weeks. Anyone else in same boat as me? I have been talking to a nurse whose friend had exactly the same smear result as me and is now going for surgery to have a sliver of her cervix removed! Im terrified at the minute!
I didnt have any biopsies taken at the time of the colposcopy. And may I also add that the colposcopy is no worse than a smear, its a bit longer but the special chair they have you in means you are very comfortable.
Grateful for any advice :)
