New here........

so would like to say hello to everyone and introduce myself. My names Amber I'm 34, married with 2 children. Two years ago my smear test came back abnormal and on further investigation (coloposcy) was found to have CIN 3. This was treated under general and a biopsy taken. Everything came back alright and was advised to have 6 monthly checks at the coloposcy clinic, unfortunately each visit has resulted in me needing treatment and although I did get a negative back in feb this year, yesterday I received my results form septembers smear and once again they are abnormal. So I am now waiting for yet another visit to the clinic for further zapping :evil:

I've just stumbled onto this site and having read some of the posts; I feel this site is just what I need right now :)

Sorry to ramble but am looking forward to meeting you all.

Hi Amber,

Welcome to Jo's. You have come to the right place and will receive tons of support.

I'm so sorry you are having negative results all the time, but at least you are having it treated.

I love the way you describe it as zapping, it just sums it up doesn't it? :)

Good luck

Hello there!

Rambling, moaning and groaning is great! Don't knock it, we all do it. There is no comparison/competition of diagnosis, symptoms treatments etc here. It just seems that whatever is causing someone to be down there are others here to help pick you up. Think of it as team work. You could be the one sending the next supportive post to someone who's treading in your footsteps and feels how you do and they'll be greatful you understand. Everyone here has so much to offer. They're a God-send.

Be the best you can be when you can and allow yourself to lean on others when you can't. :wink:

Best Regards
