I have posted something similar about 6 weeks ago to hopefully hear of some experiences. I am hoping this post may reach someone else who has been in this position or knows someone who has. I had an highly abnormal smear test come back and was booked in for a colposcopy. I had it done yesterday and the doctor did not like what he saw. He has rushed through my results as urgent so it will take a couple of days rather than a couple of weeks. I feel ok about it all I just don't know anyone else who has ever faced this and it would be nice to hear from women who have been through a similar situation

Funny enough, every smear I have ever had and every colposcopy, even goes in for treatment, whenever they look at my cervix they comment "what a healthy looking cervix"! So don't stress about them commenting on how it 'looks', mine looked good but when the dye went on, sure enough there were papilomas there and I needed treatment.
LLETZ wasn't common back then. Laser treatment was the first option for milder cases and cone biopsy for more progressed cases. I had laser treatment twice but still didn't get the all-clear so the Gyn then burnt the affected area with liquid nitrogen. That did the trick and I've had annual checks since then and all-clear. In total I had 3 treatments (2 laser ones were day surgery at the public hospital, last one was surgery in the Gyn's rooms - much less fuss) and 4 colposcopies.
Like I said, it is really common and thankfully becoming less so now the vacination is in place.
