Just got news of abnormal pap smear. Im freaking out :(

The doctor just called this morning to inform me of a abnormal pap smear.. This is my first abnormal ever and I am freaking out! They scheduled for me to have a colposcopy but thats not for another month! I have been reading on the net that they should have gotten some kind of results saying how severe the changes were on the pap smear but they didnt tell me anything on the phone.. So now I have to sit here and wait a month before my next appointment.. I found out that I had a bacterial infection when I went for my exam a little over a week ago, they informed me of that and gave me meds, would that have caused the abnormal result of the pap smear? I have never been through this and would really appreciate any advice of someone who has been thru the same thing and the outcome.. I need to try and ease my mind some

Re: Just got news of a abnormal pap smear.. Im freaking out :(

Yes, that could be the cause. Also, if you had sex, a bubble bath or any number of other things in the previous 24 hours, they could also cause it. I'd be calling and asking for more information. I've had 4 or 5 abnormal ones over the years and they've never done a colposcopy on me. Just had me back 6 months later for another pap - all of which were normal.
