I have just come across this website and found it really helpful. I'm 24 so have just had the results from my first ever smear and they came back borderline with high risk hpv. I was hoping if someone could explain the difference between borderline and mild abnormalities? They have said I need to go for a colposcopy which has got we worked up in a right state. I know I shouldn't think the worst but I am, partly because I've been suffering from pelvic pain on and off for years (possibly because of ibs or my pcos) but now I'm wondering whether this could be linked? Any advice would be appreciated I am finding the results difficult to interpret and can't get an appointment with my GP.
