I‘m Lucy, 30 years old.....
So, in early 2013 I attended my very first smear and my result were sever abnormalities (CIN3) which was treatment with LLETZ under GA.
6 Month FU smear was normal,
3 year smear showed mild changes (because I was HPV negative a 3 year recall)
Since my LLETZ I have experienced several symptoms.... prolonged menstrual bleeding (up to 2 weeks), bleeding during and after intercourse, spotting in between periods, painful intercourse and brown discharge.
i visited my GP last year with these symptoms and she sent me for an ultra sound.
findings were uterine fibroid.....
put symptoms down to this and got carried away with planning my wedding etc so didn’t think much of the symptoms. Because i‘d been experiencing them for so long they became sort of normal for me.
after speaking with family and friends about my symptoms I finally visited GP last week who examined my cervix and has referred me for an urgent colposcopy because she said she saw ‘a patch of unusual looking cells on my cervix’
obviously now I’m really anxious and wondering if this could well be the scar tissue from treatment previously or if this could well be something that was missed???
just really worried.......
any advice would be much appreciated.
thanks in advance
