@stardustintheeyes:  Glad to hear everything is okay!  I’ve had a couple of “slightly abnormal” paps and it is NOT a fun feeling!  Definitely made me realize how important it is to stay on top of those annual paps! πŸ™‚

This happened to me too before… and I was in the military and the idiot called me AT WORK and said “it might be cancer.”  I was 19 and freaked out.

Anyways they did that thing where they snip a chunk out I forget what it’s called – goddamn awful is what it should be called – and everything was fine!

I am glad you are okay.  There is nothing worse than getting an uh oh call about your ladybits!

I have had that happen too, not fun at all!

But here are a couple tips my doctor told me AFTER I got an irregular pap! 

  1. Try and schedule your appointment for the 3rd week of your cycle. So not the week of your period (1), not the week after your period (2), and not the week right before your period (3)
  2. Do NOT have sex within two days of having your pap!

Apparently these things can cause irregular cells to show up on your pap – I really wish someone would have told me this before my first pap!!!!!

@deetroitwhat:  A colposcopy?  I had one of those last Tuesday.  Not fun.  

I did test positive for HPV, though, so we know it wasn’t just something funky with the sample.    I’m really stressed out from school, so my NP thinks my immune system isn’t fighting to suppress it like it’s supposed to.

Ya dont worry. I had abnormal cells for a few years.  They went away though. Had to have paps every 6 months (not fun). But now i’m alllll good.
