I had a smear test in November and got the results back saying I do not have HPV but have cell changes and need to go to a colposcopy. After reading the leaflet it says if you test negative for HPV your cells won't be tested and you return to your normal yearly/3 years smear test.
I can not find anywhere that says you would need a coloppscopy if you didn't have HPV. Now I am worried the nurse that did the smear has seen something abnormal and that's why they have tested cells and some abnormalities have shown.
My last smear (3 years ago) was clear and the one before that was abnormal but after a colopscopy things were fine.
has anyone had the same results or know what this means?
I have been to the breast clinic on Monday with a lump that turned out to be a milk gland, was so relieved and excited to not worry about things and now this any advice would be much appreciated!
