Waiting colposcopy

What is the average wait time for a colposcopy appointment. Mine is in 4 weeks time. Is that a long time. Also can the hpv positive ever be wrong.

Hi CD, 

 

My understanding from what I've read on this forum is that the wait time can differ greatly from the same day up until 6 months. 

 

Those with high grade severe dyskaryosis are usually seen within two weeks but covid is delaying that for some people. 

 

I believe hpv is usually correct from what I've read, but whether it is mild (CIN I), moderate (CIN II) or severe (CIN III) can be different. So some people may be told they have CIN III at smear but when I biopsy is taken during colposcopy it can come back as CIN I. 

 

I hope that helps xx
