Colposcopy

Hello,
Every year I am going for a manual check up to gynecologies. Everything been fine till this past summer my Pap Smear came abnormal. So I had a colcospocy done. And the doctor sad that I have HPV virus, but my cervix are ok, and I need to go back i 6 month. So 2 weeks ago I did my Pop Smear again, and it came abnormal again. Doctor wants to to another colposcopy, but now i am getting confuse if I really need to do this again ant that soon??? I heard it is dangerous, I am planing to have kids.... All my life I been take care of my self, gym, no drugs, taking vitamins, trying eat healthy. Please, I need advise from another doctor, what I should do.

Re: Colposcopy

I suggest you get a second opinion if you are not confident in this doctor's decisions.

Do you know what type of abnormal cells were on both paps? Did your doctor do a biopsy when he/she did your first colpo? If so, what was the results. If you don't know, then ask for copies of your pathology reports from the paps and colpo. They'll tell you exactly what the doctor did and what the results were from the tests.

You might ask for an ECC (endocervical curettage) when you go for the second colpo. It checks the cervical canal which cannot be tested or seen during a pap or colpo. The HPV/dna test tells the doctor if there is a current HPV invection. That means if the infection isn't on the outer cervix, then it could be somewhere else.

May I ask, how old are you?
