Okay just looking to see if any of you ladies have gone through the same thing as me, or similar?
I had my first ever smear test last month in October (I'm 26) & I got my results back as 'abnormal'.. & that I had low grade dyskariyosis & evidence of HPV! Now I had never heard of HPV before until my smear test! Anyway, as you do, I went straight into panic mode thinking 'oh my god I've got the dreaded C word!!' I literally cried through panic of seeing this on my results as I've never been ill or had any operations or anything of the sort & I am pretty healthy!
Anyway, I was booked to go for a colposcopy which I went to at the beginning of November - I can't explain the nerves I felt when I was called into the colposcopy room. But in actual fact, it really was not that bad! The nurses I had were lovel. - I must have absolutely drilled their brains with the amount of questions I had.. She explained to me before she did the colposcopy that I had 'high risk HPV' & I said 'the type that can cause cancer?' And before she even finished saying 'yes' my heart was in my mouth!! So I got into position & she was having a look at my cervix, as she was doing so she asked me if I wanted to look.. I said noooo way ho say! Lol.. Not that it mattered as I could see her computer screen right behind her & guess what? There was my cervix lol I really didn't wish to see it!!
After she had a look & everything, she did 2 biopsies (which weren't painful for any ladies wondering) & she told me afterwards that she thinks my letter was wrong about the low grade dyskariyosis & that she thinks I just have the HPV virus so she said I didn't need treatment & would probably just be called back for another smear! I'm still waiting for my biopsy results & I'm dreading that they might say something completely different to what she told me.. Is this possible? What are the chances that she could be wrong & it could be worse? It's been almost 2 weeks & I've not heard anything yet. Has anyone experienced this or similar? And can high risk HPV flush itself out of your body? I've totally upped my vitamin intake now too to help boost my immune system even more, even though I have a strong one already!
Any advice would be great!! :)
