New to the forums (lurker).
My story goes, im 28, been with my husband since i was 21 (not my first partner or vice versa), we have two children together (ones 3 and the others 1) and in Sept 2012, 8 months after the birth of my daughter i had my first ever smear and it came back CIN3. I mention the fact id recently had a baby because my delivery wasnt exactly normal- i gave birth in 20min, never had regular contractions and i also needed a manual placenta removal afterwards which was quite physically traumatic.
So i have my colposcopy and i/they can see the white damaged cells, this was removed and my pathology reports say they removed all the cells cleanly and it was actually CIN2. Fine.
Then i go back 6 months later (March 2013) and have my follow up colposcopy and smear. First of all, much to the consultants surprise, nothing visible has grown back. I ask him 'could my delivery have caused this?' and he says 'No, its caused by the HPV virus'. My smear results come back that i had no further dyskarious and there was also no high risk HPV.
Im therefore not entirely sure what the hell has happened to my body.
Could a low grade HPV virus (which i havent been tested for) reared its ugly head during pregnancy/delivery and caused a CIN2/3?
Could i have fought off and made a high risk HPV virus dormant?
Could the CIN have been caused by something else ie recent delivery?
I am so very confused.
