My name's Abby I'm 24 yrs old and last year I found out I was positive for high risk HPV (CIN 2-3). I've only had 1 partner within the past 7 years. I'm very scared and I don't have anyone else to turn to so that's what brings me here. I had the LEEP/cone procedure Aug. 2008 and at my post op appointment my doctor tells me the ''margins are clear,'' and she'd see me in a few months for my follow-up pap smear. At that time both my doctor and i felt confident that everything would be fine.
January of this year I come in for my pap and sadly the results still came back positive for high risk HPV yet again! So I come back for the cervix biopsy. My doctor suggests at my next appointment "cryo-therapy" to freeze off the abnormal cells. My heart is breaking and I don't know how to deal with this alone. I try to think positive but it's so hard! Just wondering if you guys had a similar experience and what you could advise me. Do you know the success rate of cryotherapy? I know usually the first step of treatment is cryotherapy and if that's not working then it is followed by LEEP, but in my case it's reversed. I'm so scared it won't help! I'm pissed off that at first my doctor said the margins were clear after the LEEP then a few months later she tells me there's abnormal cells again! It's so frustrating!! Do you think cryotherapy will help???
