Question I need advice please

I was wondering if it is normal to have an abnormal smear result following getting my cervix froze. It all started a year ago with my doc finding an area on my cervix he was concerned about, although my smear result was normal he sent me to a gyno to get it checked, they took a biopsy and it came back mild dysplasia, since then i have had 4 smears, may was normal,august was abnormal(ASGUS) so he decided to freeze my cervix, since then i have have had 1 smear and it came back abnormal again (ASGUS), i was wondering if i should be concerned or if anyone else has had this happen? My sisterinlaw says i should be getting a second opinion, and on the other hand i read stuff that says mild dysplasia is really no that serious, so not really sure how concerned i should be at this point. I would love some advice, Thanks Saltire

Re: I need advice please

I don't know much about freezing since I had the leep, but ascus reading could be scarring from the procedure, or some more abnormal cells. Procedures like these often kick our bodies' immune systems into high gear and mild dysplasia often with clear up. Folic acid helps. Be sure to be going in every 3-4 months to be checked though. And if you're concerned this doc isn't cautious enough for ya, get a second opinion. You're worth it.
