I also had positive smear 5 years ago, i was diagnosed cin3, had all cells lazerd with clear margins, no further treatment, smears every 6 months for a year then smear yearly for 2 years, now back on normal screening plan, all has been fine since, best of luck with results.
Hi CK, I haven't been reading much lately, and so I didn't see anything about you getting the results of a cervical smear before being called for the colposcopy. I went for my smear almost 3 weeks ago, and on Friday I received a letter saying I had abnormal cells, no HPV so they'd see me in 5 years. They even gave me the date. The "abnormal" made me go to pieces, of course, and I phoned my local GP, spoke to the nurse, who will come back to me tomorrow. From what I have seen of other people's experiences, the abnormal cells would normally require a follow up check after 6 months. Can you tell me if yours was HPV+ or -?
CK, I just know that your results are going to be fine, I just know!!! Stay as positive as you always are...

When I was in my 20s, I had a positive smear test & had a colposcopy & treatment for abnormal cells, I remember the Dr being very reassuring about the whole thing & she was right. I have been all clear ever since & had even forgotten about it, until sitting with the BCN after being diagnosed with this & thinking, blimey, I've done quite well out of the screening programmes - a second early find!
