Hi, I know no one can give me answers but some reassure would be amazing or just some similar stories...
3 years ago I had an abnormal smear test, hpv positive and cell changes. Had a colposcopy done and didn't even need a biopsy as everything looked fine.
14 months ago I had a little girl and decided after that to not go back on the pill to let my body and menstral cycle get back to normal. Regular periods returned no issues until around 5 months ago....
I noticed that my periods were becoming a lot heavier! But managable then my last period came a week early only lasted 3 days, was incredibly heavy and the pain was unbearable. I was glad to see the back of this period!
I decided to go to the gp and whilst there she said she would check my cervix just to see if it looked healthy from her point of view... no problem... until she was down there, went quite, stayed down there for a while then told me she can see something that doesn't look right.
now she said it could possibly be a cervical ectropion (sorry if that's not spelt right) but can't be sure and with changes to my period and cycle and the fact that I have had previous abnormal smears and hpv she's concerned and has referred me on the 2 week urgent referral for a colposcopy.
I am freaking out to say the least..... I have a 14 month old daughter who is my world and I can't even look at her without crying which I know is stupid because I've not even had the appointment yet I'm just so worried.
At my last colposcopy they said they couldn't see anything or any evidence of hpv so discharged me back to 3 yearly smears (have not been invited for one yet so glad I've gone to drs!) would it be possible for cervical cancer to be present since my last colposcopy?
I don't have pain or bleeding during intercorse but I have also noticed an increase in 'stretchy' clear/very slight yellow discharge but no blood.
any help/ reassurance will be great thank you for taking the time to read this ❤️
