Hi everyone, I'm new to this site but it looks fabulous. I've had HPV hanging over me for 6 years. I had stage 3 cells and had them removed 4 years ago.
My specialist put me on annual screenings until 2022 and referred me back to my doctors. I always have my screening in June and haven't had my invite through yet.
im particularly impatient as I am wanting to start a family (age32) and I know pregnancy hormones can be pretty nasty if Hpv is present.
my doctor has told me that due to advances there is a new high risk screening and if that is clear then you go back to 3yearly. This is terrifying as mt specialist said that I could be dead in 3 years if stage three cells are left.
im trying to get in touch with my specialist to see if he can convince my doctor to see me annually. He isn't in work until Friday and I desperately need peace of mind.
im googling private testing-I'm prepared to pay but it's annoying that I should need to.
has anyone else experienced the above?
