I'm 21 and I recently had a colposcopy following a referral from my GP. I have had one smear when I was about 17 because I'd had a baby at 16. Nothing abnormal was detected But I've been plaugued with Gynae problems for years since. I recently started having concerning symptoms so my GP sent me for an urgent colposcopy. The doctor tooka biopsy of an abnormal area that showed up. when the patch showed up the atmosphere in the room changed completely the nurse who was with me squeezed my hand tighter and the doctors face dropped. They were reassuring me that it might be nothing. The doctor said at that point that it could be pre-cancerous or "something else" and told me not to worry. But i'm terrified of the something else. I've not really got anyone to talk to about it. I'm really really scared that the results will be 'something else' and I don't know how i'll cope. I was told I'd have to wait 6 weeks for the results and I have 4 weeks left to stress and worry about this all.
In the meantime, I was wondering if anyone else had had a similar experience. Am I worrying for nothing?
I never experienced anything like this so I really dont know what to expect. I am trying to stay positive but I don't know what I'm supposed to think.
I hope there's someone that can help.
