I had LETZ for CIN 1 a year ago.
I had borderline smear tests 6 years prior to that and participated in the usual merri-go-round of gp to inevitable hospital visit, seeing nothing at colposcopy, back to gp, conflicting information and entirely different management once I moved from one city to another.
I know that I have HPV 45. They finally took some biopsies that confirmed CIN 1 when I turned 25.
They then removed a small area, that came back 'cin 1' with clear margins.
I've just had a repeat smear test (6 months later than I ought, oops) and it has come back stating that it is normal, however the
wonderful HPV is still in evidence so I have to attend a colposcopy?
What can I do to help get rid of this virus - I thought that by having treatment my body might wake up
and sort it out, seems not.
Also, why do I have to attend colposcopy if all the cells appeared normal?
I mean - that is a relief after six years of this but still.
