I have not had a period since Septermber 25th- 29th. My cycle is 26 days. I went in for a pap smear and I am not pregnant. My tubes are tied and have been for 9 years. My hormone test came back normal. My Tyroid test came back normal. My pap came back abnormal. I had a ultrasound and it was normal except the lining of my uterus is 7mm. I had a biopsy of my cervix and it came back Sin 1. I am waiting on an appointment with the gyno because all these test were run under my family doctor's care but I can't get an appointment for a month. I am so confussed about whats gling on with me.

Hello, Bnicholson15. Thank you for your message.

Your doctor is the person to discuss your test results with. I understand how frustrating it is to have results with no explanation which is why you need to contact your doctor's office and have someone spend some time, even over the phone, to let you where you stand regarding your results until you can see your GYN. A month is a long time to wait. Keep in mind, many things can impact a woman's cycle, stress, excessive exercising, a change in lifestyle, a hormonal imbalance (which you say were checked for) being underweight or overweight. So, try not to worry until you can fully speak to your doctor.
