Hi everything, this in my first post - although I've been lerking around reading posts since having a smear test a few months ago which came back showing low grade abnormalities and HPV viris.
I went for a colposcoy at the end of July. I was told everything looked absolutely fine, "no sign of cancer" was the phrase... and then they went silent and took 3 bioposies. The fact they went silent worried me more than them just saying they'd found an area which looked abnormal and wanted to investigate!
I got my results yesterday and it shows CIN1 and CIN2, and they want me to have a Lletz next week.
I thought the biopsy was the last testing they do, and that the Lletz procedure was simply treatment. However, I keep reading about "the results of Lletz" and how people who had CIN2 results for the biopsy, can actually have early stage cancer which wasn't detected until the Lletz results?? Is this correct?
I feel silly being so wobbled by this, but I can't shake the feeling that I'm contaminated in some way - which I know is irrational, and I wouldn't think of anyone else in my position like this.
Another concerm is that my fiance and I are planning on starting to try for our first baby at the end of the year, and although the majority of information online says you can still start trying straight after you get the all clear from the Lletz, and have fully recovered from the proedure - the odd bit of information saying it can effect pregnancy, scares me.
I don't feel as though I've been given enough information from my doctors - I will, of course, ask a lot more at the Lletz appointment, but up until this point, it's almost felt like they've assumed I know everything already.
