Help :( Abnormal smear, Hpv

Hi everyone. 

I had a smear test done recently and within a week received that dreaded letter stating 'abnormal cells' and that a colposcopy appointment would follow. The letter arrived on Saturday afternoon...so of course nowhere was open. No one for me to speak to or ask questions. Both me and my partner completely fell apart as I have had a lot of problems with irregular bleeding and abdominal pain. 

 

Work was out of the question for me. Got an appointment with the nurse on Monday morning after being in pieces all weekend. Nurse confirmed Moderate changes and HPV positive and tried to reasurre me it was NOT cancer. Due to my anxiety especially due to the problems Id had prior to this result she recommended a phone consultation with the dpctor the next day.

 

As she had put my mind at ease a little tiny bit, the doctor seemed to undo all this. I told him about the pains but he basically said i was freaking out and that things only go downhill very quickly after the second abnormal smear...WTF. why would you say this. He then put me on light duty in work because of my anxieties in waiting for the appointment. I work in a prison so I appreciated this as my job is difficult on the best of days, without something like this hanging over me. But this again worried me even more. 

 

Still no sign of the colposcopy appointment, i feel sick amd literally break down several times a day. This site has literally been keeping me going and giving me faith. Everyone ive told just says "oh this happens to loads of women, its nothing, my sisters friends cousins best friend from school had this" usual type of crap that doesnt help. Jist afyer a bit of support from people in the same mind frame. Pre colposcopy. Pre results. Pre any peace of mind....

 

Thank you in advance x

Hi I’m in the same situation as you abonemeal reaults and hpv positive doctor told me not to worry it’s only slight changes but I have pain after sex and suffer with bottom back ache but she said that won’t b connected but can’t gelp panicking when I go for my colopsy they might. Say it’s worse than what they thought

SandyJo

Exactly my worries! They keep saying oh it will be fine but ive read so much about how much worse things can turn out to be at the colposcopy. Still no letter with the appointment so my other half phoned the hospital and got me one for the 22nd. So another 2 weeks of literally falling apart. Do you know when your appointment is yet ? Xxx

Hey.. I had the same exact result with my smear. 

Im going for my colposcopy on Thursday.. says it my letter that could get treatment the same day, so for peace of mind I’ve told my manager I won’t be back in that day. 

 

When is your colposcopy booked for? Try not to get too worked up (as easy as that sounds). I panic so much when I first found out but I’ve relaxed a bit knowing if it was sinister, I’m sure I’d know by now! 

 

Always here if you need to talk xxx

I’m still waiting on my results the wait in between each thing was horrible and I think it’s one clear Pap test but I’m unsure how you feeling x
