Abnormal smear results

Someone pleaseeee tell me that they've been through the same with a good outcome??? 😣

So, I'm 25, Mum of 2, and had my first smear test 10 days ago. I got a phone call 7 days later telling me I needed to be booked for an urgent appointment for a colposcopy. They booked me in for this coming Friday. I then received a later on Friday telling me that I have high grade dyskariosis and the HPV virus is also present. Well today I've had another letter saying that they are sending me straight for LLETZ treatment instead of a colposcopy. Naturally I'm thinking the worse and think I'm going to be told it's progressed to cancer. Absolutely petrified 😢 xxx

Hi Kate
I had all the same results as you in 2007. Had the LLETZ treatment and have had clear smears ever since. It's very effective and high grade dyskariosis does NOT mean cancer. Please try not to worry xx

Thank you @anglepuffs you've made me feel a bit better 👼 Did you also have high grade as well as the HPV virus? Xxx

Yes- I had high grade dyskariosis (CIN 3)- don't remember it saying hpv virus but as far as I know, abnormal smears are always caused by hpv virus so would assume I did. Or maybe they just didn't specify that back in 2007!

I had this at 25 - CIN 3 and HPV. I had a LLETZ treatment which went well but went on to have abnormal smears on & off for about 10 years.

It took a long time for my body to clear the HPV which can be unusual. It was 15 years ago now and all is fine. Horrible as it ease try not to worry.
