Re: Abnormal Pap Smear-Colposcopy
i had one done last year. it really isnt that big of a deal. they just go in and "clip" some if the cervical tissue to send off for evaluation. my pap had come back abnormal, showing cervical dysplasia...so thats why i had the colposcopy done...it came back fine. i went back in for my 6 month pap check up---again...it came back abnormal...no cervical dysplasia, but instead, atypical cells, which they said was really nothing to worry about, that it could be something as simple as a small infection...so have to go back in the next couple of weeks for my other 6 month check up----am praying that its fine this time! i dont like going once a year...much less 2 times a year...but I am going to do whatever they tell me, to make sure that I am on top of things. relax--the colposcopy is similar to a pap smear..just a tad bit more uncomfortable, but nothing to make you cry or scream with pain. good luck.
