I was having pain with intercourse and frequent bladder infections and went to my OB/GYN. She did a Pap (which was normal) and a physical exam. A week later I had a colcoscopy and a cone biopsy showing precancerous cells. I was then tested for HPV and was negative.
I thought that HPV always caused Cervical Dysplasia, so why am I negative? Why didn't my Pap show the abnormal cells one week before?
My doctor suggested a LEEP, but indicated that it will increase the chance of miscarrage if you get pregnant within 2-3 years of having the proceedure, as the cervix is not fully healed right away.
My other option is to have more frequent Paps and watch it, but my last Pap was negative so I question if changes in the condition will show up on a Pap.
I used Depo shots for the last year or so (stopped 3 months ago) and wondered if they could have caused the Cervical Dysplasia. I have not yet had a period since stopping the shots.
I am getting married and hope to start a family soon. What happens if I am pregnant and the Cervical Dysplasia progresses to cancer?
