I am new to the boards but have been lurking for quite awhile now.
My name is Reem, 29 years old and generally in good health.
I went for a check up in January (Physical, Blood Work, PAP) and got a call a couple weeks later telling me that my pap was ASCUS and HPV. I was a bit dumbfounded by this because I have only ever had one partner in my life who is my husband. Of course I started going crazy thinking how in the heck did I get this? Did he pass it on to me. etc.. I had absolutely NONE of the risks either so it was really hard to understand. When i reached out to my doctor about she said something around 95% or so that have ASCUS result is because of HPV. She then set me up for a Colp. Went in a and after the doc told me she took three biopsies and that she would be 'shocked' if anything came back abnormal because it looked clear and normal through the colposcopy. Fast forward to two weeks later and I get a call that 2 of my biopsies were normal, my ECC was benign but I had a high grade lesion (moderate at least) now at this point I am FREAKING out because I kept thinking about how she went in and said everything looked good so I was not expecting bad news. She then told me to go see a specialist. I used to work for an OBGYN so I went to go see her and showed her all my results, she then asked if they actually tested me for HPV and found out that they did not. She then did another pap and a thinprep in reflex to HPV. Got those results back and turns out I have no HPV (just like I had always thought) this made me extremely relieved but I was also livid that the former doc thought it was okay to just assume I have it due to my pap results of ASCUS.
On to the other pap results, it still shows up as ASCUS and then says:
Endocervcal and or Metaplastic Cells are evident/ Epithelial Cell Abnormality
Anyone have similar results or know what this could mean? It's been one hell of a past couple months going back and forth and having to keep waiting for more results. I am still waiting on my doc to talk to me because she went ahead and sent over my colp biopsy results from my last doctor to a specialist that she knows just to make sure they were correct. Until then its just sitting here and waiting.
Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated!
Looking forward to getting to know all of you. <3
