Being recommended, or deciding to have, treatment can make you feel a mix of emotions. We hear from people who feel worried, scared and even relieved about it, so we’ve put together some tips that may be useful:

We understand that waiting for or having treatment can be stressful, but you don’t have to cope with any emotions alone. Talking to your colposcopy team is a good place to start and we are also here to support you.
You can give our free Helpline a call on 0808 802 8000. Our trained volunteers can talk through the different treatment options or simply listen to how you’re feeling.
Sometimes connecting with others who have gone through a similar experience can be helpful. Our online Forum lets our community give and get support. You can read through the messages or post your own – whichever feels most comfortable.
If you have general questions about treatment for cell changes, our panel of medical experts may be able to help. They can’t give you answers about your individual situation or health – it’s best to speak with your colposcopy team for that.
