Abnormal results on a PAP

Have any of you had an abnormal pap smear result? I have the result come back this time as "abnormal" . Something about squamis cells? HPV? All I know is that its precancerous, or tends to be. Im so scared... Has anyone else had this? What was the out come?

  • I did. I had to have a certain surgery can't think of the name. Its where they numb your who ha and then they scrap, burn and electrocute your inside to kill all the pre-cancerous cells. I did it on Fridatyand was back to work Monday.

  • No but my sister did. She's fine. Isn't that from HPV?? I may be wrong.

  • Cryosurgery. Had 2.
    What you have to remember is that your hubby/partner probably has it, too, so if you do not use condoms, he keeps re-infecting you, and you'll end up having surgery once a year!! My ex refused to wear them, so he didn't get sex because I'd be back to the doctor every 3 months.
    After I left him I have only had one abnormal pap in 15 years, and that was re-checked last week and was fine!

  • I had one abnormal result years ago. It was rechecked, found to be okay, and I've never had any trouble since. Good luck, Mama!

  • Ive been TTC, so this doesnt help! Still confused and scared :( But it doesn't help that I can't track down which clinic I had the abnormal smear X amount of years ago. I can't remember how long ago it was, but I do remeber that it resolved itself. I never got a definate result that it was HPV or I would have taken the proper precations!! So frustraited >:-/
