Patient Comments: Cervical Dysplasia - Treatment

What type of treatment or procedure did you have for cervical dysplasia?

Comment from: Scared, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: May 21

I am 44 years old. I've had two partners in my entire life. The first one 20 years ago! The current one 5 years ago, we were together a few months, broke up for about three years and I have been with him for the past two years. I went in for a routine Pap smear/HPV test. My results have always been normal. My results came back that I was HPV positive and had low squamous intraepithelial lesion with mild cervical dysplasia. I was advised to proceed with a colposcopy and possible biopsy. Scared, yes! But I immediately made an appointment for that afternoon. The doctor said my cervix looked normal, she did an acidic test in order to highlight abnormal cells. She also performed a biopsy. The whole procedure took 10 to 15 minutes. It was not painful. I am now waiting for my results (in about 5 more days). I'm hoping for the best. Please do not hesitate to have a Pap smear/HPV test and if necessary a colposcopy, both are not painful.

I had a normal Pap smear in 02/2012. I went again in 02/2014 and results came back CIN2, cervical dysplasia. I had colposcopy and biopsy and I will have to have the cells removed. I can"t stress enough how important regular pap smears are. Never put them off.

I am 21 and have only had 2 Pap smears. The first was normal so I just expected that the second would be as well, but to my surprise, it was not. I found out that I have HPV and cervical dysplasia. I was sent off to have a colposcopy and biopsies, which by the way no matter what people say, is painful. It caused me to pass out, convulse, and puke my guts out (I have had a history of passing out with medical procedures though). I am now patiently awaiting the results from my biopsy. I have a feeling that I will have to have a loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP), but am not for sure.
