Some advice welcomed re: repeated colposcopy

Hi all, 

First time poster! My saga began in May of 2018 when I had gone for a long overdue smear (it actually ended up being several due to my tilted cervix wreaking havoc on the nurse). My results came back abnormal - Cell changes, low grade dyskaryosis and high risk HPV. I was sent to hospital for a colposcopy and my results came back with nothing sinister but I was advised to attend another smear in 6 months time. I did so and the same results came back so I had my 2nd colposcopy a few weeks later. This time the doctor took a few more biopsies than last time (I'm not sure why) and they were sent off for testing.

He said at the time that I had some pre-cancerous cells which would need treated but he was reluctant to do so as I am "still young and have no children". (I was 29 at the time) He said then said I should come back for another colposcopy in 12 months time, which I am due to have next Thursday the 20th. 

Has this happened with anybody else? I find it odd that they wouldn't treat me before even though he claimed I needed it. I can only assume that means it's nothing serious but I suffer a lot from random bleeding and other things that have been going on for years. I have ruled almost everything else I can out so I am desperate for this to be resolved to see if it makes anything better.

Also one last thing sorry! My period should be here by now but it seems to be stalling because I am stressed and worried about next week and in typical fashion I feel like it will arrive the week of the appointment. Will I have to reschedule? I will cry if I have to! 

Thanks for reading if you made it this far haha laughing
