In 2009 during a very stressful year, ( 2 months before my daughter's wedding), I had a pap smear come back as LGSIL, the HPV was NEGATIVE. They did a colposcopy and it came back as C1N1 so they did nothing. They found yeast and a bacterial infection which they treated with two very strong antibiotics. Four months later I went back for another pap smear and it came back ASC-US. They told me to come back in a year.
2010 brought another stressful year. My yearly pap smear had gone back to LGSIL again. HPV was NEGATIVE. The doctor noticed yeast again. This time I did not take the strong antibiotics but instead treated it with natural means. A colposcopy was prescribed.
I decided to try and build up my immune system try to rid my body of yeast and re-pap in 3 months.
I started an anti-fungal diet with natural anti-fungal supplements plus immune building supplements.
I returned in 3 months for my pap. The yeast is now gone but the pap remains LGSIL, HPV is NEGATIVE. The stress has not lessened AT all. I am convinced that the change in my pap from LGSIL to ASC-US back to LGSIL is due to the enormous amount of stress that my body has to combat with.
The doctor is prescribing a colposcopy again. I've been reading up here and other places and I don't understand the necessity of a colposcopy for LGSIL with a HPV NEGATIVE. Everything I read says that most of the time these lesions clear up by themselves in 18-24 months.
The costly procedure will be out of pocket as I have a high deductible. I would love to know what options I have but cannot get any information from my doctor without setting up another $75 appointment.
I apologize for the length of this post but I wanted to give you some history.
Would love to know other stories...or help. I prefer to treat my body's symptoms naturally to support it as much as possible.
