    Default Possible High Grade Abnormality

    Hello,

    Just wondering who else has had the above or similar come back on their smear results and what happened after?

    I've been referred for a Colposcopy but in the mean time would like to hear others experiences - good and bad

    Thanks!

    Yes I've had this.

    It's really not too bad. My first colposcopy was agonising so I went to someone different the next time and she actually numbed the area first and it was fine. I mean, not exactly fun but only a little more uncomfortable than a smear.

    So my advice would be...make sure you get a good referral. :-)

    I've had a few and as harvs said ... not too bad. Just a bit more invasive than a smear

    Thanks for your quick replies! If you don't mind me asking...did they find anything that you required further treatment for?

    I was fine. I just needed regular colposcopies for a while then annual smear tests to monitor and now I'm back to normal.

    ETA I keep forgetting to say good luck and I hope all is well :-)

    They were watching to see if the abnormal cells changed.. So 6 monthly smears and annual colposcopies. On the third year I said enough and could we do something else. Had a Letz and no issues since (10 years now).

    I have had two now, both biopsies were clear and fine. Sometimes high grade pap results are not actually high grade when you have the biopsy.

    I have to go back in 6 months for another pap to monitor.

    As for the actual procedure, the last one didn't hurt much at all. My gyn told me to cough as she took the sample and I didn't even feel the pinch. Then when she put the stuff on to stop the bleeding she got me to take deep breaths so my cervix didn't cramp as bad.

    This experience was heaps better and wasn't too uncomfortable, I wouldn't say it hurt even.

    Best of luck, I am sure everything will be fine 😊

    My bestie had the exact same thing.
    Colposcopy came back entirely clear.

    I've had it happen a couple of times. First time, I had a colposcopy (which I've never found painful, just a bit uncomfortable as you're sitting there with a speculum up your hoo-haa for longer than with a normal pap and it confirmed I had abnormal cells, so I had a LLETZ procedure which was a breeze for me. I had a follow up colposcopy at 6 and 12 months post op. My 6 month one was clear, but my 12 month showed CIN3 again so I had to have a second LLETZ done, which again was very straightforward and simple and easy recovery. This is very rare though, my gyno said she only gets about one patient a year that happens to, and I just happened to be that one. I had to have 6 and 12 month colposcopies again which were both clear, then a yearly pap for two years, and now I'm back to two yearly Pap tests again as they were all clear.
    You'll be fine - but if you have any questions feel free to pm me.
