I've beend browsing this formum for a while and decided to share my own story and maybe get some feedback :)
I went for a smear in Aug 2011 wich came back as abnormal and was referred to the colposcopy cinic. they diagnosed CIN 3 and I had a lletz a month later. At my six month check up I was told there were still abnormal cells but they would leave them be and hope they would clear up themselve, alas no! Six months later I was told I had CIN 3 again and I needed a scond round of LLetz which surely would get rid of all of those missed bad cells.
So I went for a check up in November and the results were abnormal cells and I was told to come back in April of this year to check on them.
Now I am fed up! I've not worried the whole time until now. My friends and family just tell me its sooo common and not to worry cause the doctor can keep doing lletz if the abnormal cells have returned, Great!!
So i didnt worry, until now. Am I being naive in thiniking ah this is grand sure it happens all the time or should I be preparing myself for something worse? I wasnt given info on margins and in November they tested for HPV but I never received my result. Is having HPV a thing i should know about?
I'm 30 with no children by the way.
Thanks for taking the time to read and any feedback / comments / suggestions are very welcomed and much appreciated.
