My doctors office just called me this past Thursday to say that my pap came back abnormal and they scheduled me to come in for a "colposcopy" on Tuesday.
Have any of you ever experienced this? What was the result? What could be wrong with me?
I have regular annual GYN appts every year. I have never had an abnormal pap. And I have had 2 healthy pregnancies?
Any insight any of you can give me would be great...at this point I am driving myself crazy worrying
First I want to say that it is not uncommon for you to get an abnormal pap. One of the causes could having sex too soon before you go to the doctor. I had my first pap smear when I was 18 and it came back abnormal. They did the biopsy and it came back as cancer in the beginning stage. After I had had my surgery I was having paps done every 3 months then on to every 6 months. Even after my surgery I had one abnormal pap (this past December) and they did another biopsy and it came back as nothing. I definitely wouldn't worry too much yet. The biopsy or colposcopy can be uncomfortable but it isn't painful. Please let us know how it goes!!
I had a colposcopy back in the winter as a result of an abnormal pap smear. After the pap, I took some medication for two weeks, had the colposcopy, only to find out it was just some abnormal cells. Everything cleared up on it's own after that.
popping in from march ddc. i had an abnormal pap in april. i had a colposcopy done as well. i found out i do have hpv and dysplasia but they said it wouldn't hurt a baby if i got pregnant. we were actively ttc at that point and found out soon after we were expecting. they said it wouldn't harm the baby and they would just check it after i deliver and either remove it or sometimes it can heal itself. so either i will have a procedure to remove it (freezing or a leep procedure) or it will be gone! but it is very common and as long as you keep on top of it you will be fine. xoxo
i went in for the colposcopy this past tuesday...he took 3 samples (biopsy) and they said they would call as soon as the results came in.
i was a little nosey though and looked at my chart after he left and i wish i wouldn't have........he wrote severe erosion
what does that mean???? how eroded could anything be - i was just there like a year ago and had NO problems.
