Very helpful post!  I had one as well, and experienced the same thing you did.  A bit of pinching when they take the biopsy(ies), nothing worse than when they scrape your cervix during a pap smear!

My biopsies showed pre-cancerous cells so I ended up having to have a LEEP procedure, which was more invasive.  I can give insight on that, if anyone is curious.

I had one too.  Pain wasn’t that bad at all.  Unfortunately I pysched myself out a lot and almost passed out afterwards.  But I do that after a flu shot so I’m not blaming the actual procedure haha. I’m just a nervous nilly when it comes to medecine and doctors.

Any insight would be great. I have to go back in a few months for a follow up pap. I have had two irregulars in the past three years and they wanted me back in 6 months versus a year. It’s a little scary!

same thing for me : [ my original came back as high-severe abnormalities.  then the colposcopy showed high abnormalities.  Then six months later (they decided to wait before doing a leep because I’m young), I showed NO abnormalities (I was SOOOO happy), and on Monday I went back for the next six month check-up.  Waiting for those results is scary : [  Hoping for more good news.  If it comes back clear again then I don’t have to go in for another year!

I’m not an expert, but I’ve been through at least ten colposcopy procedures and seven LEEPs. I was diagnosed with Stage II cervical cancer in 2007 and have had a bit of a rough go since but I am clear now! If you have any questions, I’d try my best to answer them! 🙂
