I am new to this site, did a google search and found it, it seems that everyone here has been in more or less the same situation as I am now, and everyone seem very understanding and caring!!
I am a 25yr old female, got married January 19, 2008 to my boyfriend of 5 years!! I have been having really bad stomach pains, so my GP recommended I go see a Gyno, so I did!! Had my first (ever) pap smear 2mnths ago!! Got a call back from gyno who says results came back abnormal and want to resubmit it for further investigation! These results also came back abnormal.
I was scheduled for a Colposopy, which I got the results of last week!! I have CIN 3, Cervical Dysplasia , pre-cancerous cells :-( These are such big words, I am so scared!!!
My OB/GYN has booked me for, now explain this PLEASE, a "Electro-conization" or "Conization by Diathermy" on November 2, 2008!! I have been doing research for over a week regarding the procedure she has recommended and all I could come up with was that it's either a very new procedure or it's a combination between LEEP and Cone Biopsy!!!
I am so scared!! My husband and I were planning on starting a family next year July/August, is this still possible??
Since I got my results last week, I have quit smoking, won't use tampons (on my period) and can't even get myself to think about sex??? Can I still have sex???
I have a second opion booked for October 6!! I need to talk about this!! I've cried so much, and yet I don't feel like I've cried enough!! I've told my closest friends, but haven't really talked and cried to them about it... don't want to burden them, or make them feel like I need/want sympathy!!! Have told my husband as well, and we've spoken about it, but not enough it seems!!
I AM SO SCARED!!! I really want to have kids, I know I'll be an amazing mother!!!
Thanks for reading and letting me vent some!!
