I've had about 4 colposcopies done in the past. It's just as Jamie says. They spray your cervix with vinegar and then look at it through a colposcope. If you weren't pregnant they would take a biopsy. My office even provides a monitor on the wall so you can see your own cervix. Personally I hate them, but who is a fan of spreading their legs for strangers in the name of good health, right?
My friend also had a history of abnormal cell growth and said it just went away on its own after she delivered her son.
