I've had two of these and they both came back perfectly fine. They are very cautious so we are lucky that the nhs look after us so attentively.

Take someone with you as it's nice to have some moral support and I didn't feel like driving afterwards.

Also I wished I'd shaved my legs, unfortunately for the nurse I was growing them ahead of a wax appointment and it was quite a shock for her!

Good luck lovely. X

Got the same letter through this morning. I had this done 22 years ago and it was fine. I'm not worried, the majority come back fine.

Thanks for replying i just don't understand why I'd need more tests in my head they must have noticed something x

Chances are you have some abnormal cells. What they'll do is a colposcopy. This is when they have a good look at your cervix with a dye that shows up the cells. They might take a biopsy. They'll likely burn the cells off there and then. It didn't hurt when i had it done. Just take a pad with you in case you bleed a little afterwards and don't have sex 24 hours before. It'll be fine.
