Re: cervical dysplasia: Cryosurgery vs. laser ablation?
Oh, if the doctor told you he got clear margins from the vaginal laser then he probably did a laser excision, which provides a specimen that can be sent to the lab for analysis. That is better but more invasive than an ablation with no specimen. You can still have normal screening in 3 months. Did you have just one spot of vaginal dysplasia? It also depends on how big that spot is. You should ask for your pathology report to confirm clear margins. Just out of curiosity if you don't mind sharing, where do you live and where is the doctor who is skilled in laser? There are so few who still know how to use laser now that LEEP has replaced it. I went out of state for mine but I didn't care, I knew which treatment I wanted and I paid good money to get it. I hope this is the end of your hpv story. I get so angry at the medical establishment and how they handle hpv (or rather don't) sometimes.
