Hi sammi, so sorry that you are having to deal with CIN, i know this is a worrying time, i myself was diagnosed with VIN3 in FEB, which is similar to CIN but rather than effecting cervix it is vulva, I am due to have excision surgery on 29th. I was also not very inform from my doctor mostly what i found out was from web sites. However the short version of what CIN is - it is a pre-cancerous condition which shows changes in the cells, again i know this is so worring but the big thing to remember is that it is PRE-cancer. Unfortunately i do not know about how a loop is performed, but i am sure some other people will be able to give you more info once read post, I just wanted to let you know that i am thinking of you, and you are not alone in this lots of women have had this. Take care. Also speak with you doctor again and get him to explain everything to you, i took my mom with me on one of my appointments so i could get answers. I hope you have good friends and family around you to help and support you through this.
