Hello everyone. I just need someone to listen to me and hopefully give me some advice or knowledge about my concerns.
I just recently turned 24 years old in March 12. My first pap smear was in 2016 and it was all good.
My second pap was in May 2018 and it came back negative but positive for high risk HPV. I went for a colposcopy in September which resulted in CIN1 at 10'o clock and chronic cervicitis. I was scheduled for another pap in 6 months. I had been having constant and heavy (sorry tmi) pus like and sometimes thick yellowish discharge (with NO odor or other symptoms) I believe even before doing my pap in 2018. I was tested for all STDS and they all have come back negative. I was, however, positive for vaginitis (ph inbalance) in addition to the stupid HPV and CIN1 and was prescribed antibiotics like 3 times. They didn't do a thing. I decided I don't want anymore antibiotics. Still dealing with the discharge.
During these 6 months (since my colposcopy results) I cut out smoking weed, started taking a bunch of supplements like AHCC, Beta Glucan, B-12 & folate, Selenium, transferon and vit D3. I stopped smoking weed since November. Started eating much more healthier and organic as much as possible. However, throughout all this time my cervix is still red and inflammed and it bleeds to the touch. In evey pelvic exam this has happened and I have spotted mid cycle in a few ocassions.
I just had my 3rd pap smear yesterday and my cervix is still inflamed. My obgyn showed me the speculum after doing the pap swab and it was filled with blood! He said my cervix is very friable and is bleeding to the touch. I was told to wait for the pap results in 2 weeks and then he will schedule me for another colposcopy and cryotherapy because he is most certain the pap will come back abnormal. I asked him if the CIN1 could have progressed into 2 or 3 in just 6 months and he said it could happen in weeks!
I am terrified and sad that all my hard work for my health has been in vain. I'm a believer in the power of the mind as well and have been meditating, doing breathing exercises and praying. Still am. But now my anxiety levels are through the roof again and I'm not sure what to expect in these pap results.
I'm wondering if the cervix inflammation/friable state is due to the hpv infection? Because clearly the antibiotics for the "bacterial vaginosis" didn't work. I'm going to start doing lactobacillus suppositories though to help the good bacteria flora to see if that helps.
Also, if I end up having CIN2 or 3, will cryotherapy be enough to get rid of it? Or will I need LEEP? I'm terrified of having a LEEP procedure after watching a video of it and also reading so many horror stories from women who have got it done.
Lastly, during this last pelvic exam my obgyn said he felt one of my ovaries was much bigger than the other one. He said "the right one feels twice the size of the left" I asked if I should be concerned about this but he said "no" and that was that. Is it normal to have one of your ovaries be larger than the other? Either way I plan on having another transvaginal ultrasound privately to see if there's anything off. I had a transvaginal ultrasound a few months back and it was normal and the ovaries differences were very small so it scared me when he said the right one felt much bigger than the left.
Any advice, knowledge or words of encouragement will be appreciated.
