Waiting for biopsy results after colposcopy

Hi everyone. My smear showed borderline changes and was positive for HPV. At my colposcopy 1.5 weeks ago (one month after the was worried for a month) the doctor thought the brush they use for the smear might not have reached the abnormal area. She took some punch biopsies and said the results would be 4-6 weeks. This is reassuring as results would surely have to be much sooner if they were really worried. She did say however that it is likely to be CIN 1 rather than 2 or 3 based on her experience of the clinical appearance of the abnormal area. I'm still worried and stressed that I won't get the results before the end of the year. If it is CIN 1 they usually say have a yearly smear so ill probably spend all year worrying about my next smear!
Any similar stories or has anyone had to have treatment?
