Bethhh, thank you so much for your quick replies. I don't know when I was 'diagnosed', all I know is this is my first month knowing, so maybe that's why I'm so anxious and just now finding this to be a huge life or death ordeal. But I know it's been more than 2 years since I've had abnormal paps, and if HPV/dysplasia (which word I've yet to hear) goes away on it's own, it hasn't yet. I have a great immune system. Haven't had the flu in 7 years, never have a cold more than a day, etc. I'm super thankful for that! But I'm hoping that pelvic infection I had is the reason for my latest abnormal pap, although he did say low grade LSIL.. which means HPV doesn't it? I never had an actual HPV test. Just the paps and colposcopy. Sillygirl, thanks. This will be my second Colp./Biopsy. I have not seen my new doctor yet, I simply made an appointment with a new doctor at a really good hospital an hour away from me just to get a second opinion, but I can't get in there 'til the 26th of February. So I'll need to have everything faxed + fed exed over. But my colp/biopsy is Thursday the 24th of this month. And I'm more worried about the results than the actual pain as this is my second one. I have to say having a straw like tube inserted in my uterus through my cervix was far more painful, because they had to fill my uterus with water to see it's size (bicournate uterus it seems.) But that's a whole diff story. My doctor's nonchalant about everything. Which kind of worries me. I miscarried in '05 and he more or less told me I should be relieved, but then again he'd told me I had a very little chance of miscarrying prior to it happening. Less than a week prior to it happening actually. Sad stuff. I think they frown on me for having been a pregnant teen.
