Re: Recurrent dysplasia and rheumatoid arthritis
I would suggest that before you subject yourself to any more proceedures that you consult a second opinion. One of the things that is very lucrative in the medical business is any procedure that the patient can not see being performed, can not see physically where the procedure was performed, and has no symptoms that would tell them whether or not there was a need for the procedure in the first place.
This procedure is unfortunately a by-product of ignorance by women of the fact that if you are sexually active, married or not you will have mild to moderate dysplasia from having sex, from having a period and using tampons, or from having a baby as recently as a year ago by vaginal birth. The very pap smear itself can cause symptoms of dysplasia. Folic acid and B-complex is a good way to clear dysplasia if it is not caused by cancer. The vitamin complex helps the cells to become stronger and less likely to deteriorate on their own. The operative information here though is to get a second opinion before allowing the doctor to do repeated leeps, colposcopy or any other cutting scraping procedures. It is amazing that women have cervixs nowdays due to all the pruning they undergo.
