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
