@AcheneMalefic:  I just want to let you know, a lot of young women get irregular pap tests that clear up on their own. I did when I was 18 or 19. Since then I’ve had 2 normal ones. She probably cut you off because she didn’t want you ruminating on something that isn’t serious yet.

I wouldn’t freak out yet. Abnormal paps can be from anything. Your doctor really wasn’t trying to reassure you, there really is nothing to worry about yet. Take a deep breath and try and relax. (I know easier said than done) But really, it will be ok. *hugs*.

@AcheneMalefic:  I hope your biopsy gives you some answers! I had a biopsy done on a tumor in my breast. It was a pretty scary wait, but ultimately, I was jsut really happy to be moving forward and figuring out what my lump was. Hopefully your biopsy comes up with no problems, but no matter what, it is always better to know.

 

Best wishes, lady!

@AcheneMalefic:  just want to try to give you some reassurance. I’ve had multiple abnormal paps, several colposcopies, and a LEEP. Each time, it was a little scary and I got the same talk from my doctor as well.  Each time, it has turned out to be nothing serious. Abnormal paps are really, really common. Your doctor is just doing the right thing in doing the biopsy. 

 

I hope you get some answers and start to feel better. As hard as it is, try not to worry about the pap and biopsy. It sounds like you’ve got a good doctor now so hopefully that helps to ease your fears. 

ETA: also, ask your doctor about the HPV vaccine. I was able to get it even though I was a bit older than the recommend age and had already been sexually active. My insurance covered it 100% since I start the series just before my 27th birthday.

@AcheneMalefic:  Good luck today. Just wanted to say that I also have PCOS and have had (unrelated) abnormal pap smears, and that it cleared up on its own. I know your doctor was just trying to reassure you, but I know what you mean — the pre-emptive reassurance is off-putting. From what I understand, an abnormal pap is really common and not anything to worry about.

my sister had an abnormal Pap and the doctor briefed her on HVP and tons of stuff but then they re-ran the test and her second pap (done less then 24hrs from the first) was completely normal! Its okay to worry, but don’t jump to any conclusions yet!!!

I think your doctor was trying to reassure you and stop you before your started to worry. I’ve known a few women to have abnormal pap smears and everything turned out just fine. Like your doctor said, don’t worry too much! Please update us!

I want to echo the others – try not to worry too much.  About five years ago, I got in a conversation with a bunch of girls I worked with.  Out of, I think, six of us only one had never had an abnormal pap (me).  Everybody else went on to be completely fine – either immediately or with minimal intervention.  My thoughts are with you that things went well today.

Don’t worry…I’ts probably all fine! I’ve only had one abnormal pap before…they sent me for not one but TWO biopsies which made me sick to my stomach from worrying, but in the end the changes in the cells weren’t alarming enough for anymore action, and it was determined that my body would fix it on it’s own…it did, normal paps ever since….never been told not to TTC
