Hello beautiful ladies,
Something has been weighing on my mind these past few days and perhaps you could help me feel a little at ease.
After my colposcopy, even though my abnormalities weren’t as bad as they thought, I was booked in for an operation to remove the abnormal cells under general anaesthetic. I am no worried about this as I was informed this type of operation proves 95% successful. However, these past few days, I have been thinking whether I’m doing my cervix any harm by taking the contraceptive pill. I started taking the pill April of last year, as I was very late on the sex bandwagon and didn’t want to take any risks with my new boyfriend (however, like a fool, I didn’t use condoms for most of the relationship). Even though we broke up months ago, I am continuing to take the pill because it makes my periods a lot less painful and it’s so much easier to plan things around my sodding period. I even took two packets back-to-back so that I didn’t come on on the day of my colposcopy.
Anyway, my concern is, I am now a week into a packet, and have my operation on Tuesday, and I have no idea what to do regarding if I should carry on taking it or stop because it could decrease the effects of me being abnormal-cell free? I hope this all makes sense. Thank you for listening. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
