How likely is it for CIN-1 to turn into cervical cancer?

I had an irregular pap smear which showed abnormal cells a couple weeks ago. A culposcopy/ biopsy was done on 4/9.

The dr said there were mild changes in the lab results and diagnosed it as being CIN-1. She recommended we wait and see if my immune system fights it off, then do a repeat pap smear in 4-6 months and to let her know if I have more irregular bleeding/ spotting.

I guess my question is for those that have been through a similar situation with a CIN-1 diagnosis. Does this oftentimes escalate to CIN2, and actual cervical cancer?

If one desires to have children, would it be best to try conceiving during the early stage of CIN1 before the pre cancerous cells have a chance to progress?

Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Re: How likely is it for CIN-1 to turn into cervical cancer?

It's very unlikely for CIN1 to turn into cancer. First of all, 90-ish% of CIN1s spontaneously revert back to normal. In the 10% that don't, if you keep getting your Paps regularly, any further changes would be caught and easily treated long before they became invasive cancer.

No, you don't need to try to have kids now. Even if your CIN advanced and needed treatment with a LEEP, it really doesn't affect your ability to have children.

I had CIN1. Six months later it had progressed to CINIII. I got it treated with a LEEP and it has never come back (6 years).

Not to fret. You'll be absolutely fine. Cheers!

It is very unlikely that it will turn into cancer, especially if you are young. It is not impossible though, so you should continue getting check ups.
I once had CIN 3 and it stayed that way for 3 years. I have a Surgical Cone and everything has been good since.
