Re: low grade sil
Low grade SIL are cells with low grade changes. My doc explained it to me like a staircase, each step representing the changes normal, low, med, high grade, and then into the cancers. What they'll watch for is if you have any changes greater than low, and then if so explore options of removing the tissue without it ever getting to the point of worrying about cancer. She said only a percentage of the low grade change people actually move up the stairs, most people's immune system fights it off. I had mod-high grade changes (mind you I hadn't gone to the doc in 5 years!) and had 2 leep procedures. But one thing my doc gave me is prescription strength folic acid (which they also give to women trying to conceive) which promotes healthy cell regeneration. Low stress, good diet and don't smoke. Your body will probably take care of the rest. Definitely check in with your doc every three months just to be sure. Don't worry about the conceiving, my doc said it would have any effects. Take care of yourself.
