I just barely turned 19 and went in for my first pap smear. I didn't think anything of it till i got a call 2 weeks later, saying that i needed to come in to get seen for a colposcopy. I freaked out! I asked the nurse on the phone, if it was a severe issue and if i should be concerned. She said no, it was just some mild cell abnormalities that the doctor wanted to take a closer look at. I'm seriously scared to death. No one in my family has had a history of cervical cancer or anything even closely related to that. I've always practiced safe sex but i know its spread through skin-to-skin contact. I have never had an std or anything like that. I'll be seen next week. But do i really have something life-threatening to worry about? I know hpv can cause abnormal cells.. but do they go away on their own? and what is the likely hood of them not? PLEASE help me, I don't want to be stressing about this for next week. I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks and God Bless!
