High Risk HPV, Ascus, waiting colpo

This is my first time writing on any forum, so please direct me if I am in the wrong place. Definitley a stressful time, so hopefully one of you can give me some insight if you are going through or have been through something similar.

It's been over a year of abnormal bleeding, mostly after sex. The last few months it has been random bleeding and heavy... soakiung tampons and what not. not a lot of pain. My pap 5 months ago was normal, but the hpv came back high risk.

Just had another pap & hpv, and hpv is still high risk, and this time the pap came back abnormal, ASCUS. When she took this last pap, it was during a biopsy of my enodmetrial lining (came back normal) however, my cervix was compeletly stuck closed, it was painful, and when she was done she actually said "I just performed surgery on you" (i love her and have been with her through 6 pregnancies over 11 years and trust her completely).

My colposcopy is in a week. Since October I have had drenching night sweats off and on. My blood work (red blood cells and platelets) has been so abnormal that I have seen a hematologist, who ran so many tests, and I also had the pleasure (sarcasm) of having a bone marrow biopsy. He never was able to offer me any reasons for any of it, and told me to come back in 4 months. Now that my pap is abnormal, I am wondering if this is all intertwined?

I am 31, have 5 kids....

Any insight is helpful. I thought that ASCUS didn't have any symptoms.. should I prep myself for something more than the pap showed, since I've had symptoms?

Hi Shauna, Usually once the doctor has diagnosed positive HPV with ASCUS they follow a chart. From what you have written ...you have been tested using this Method and now have been directed to a colposcopy clinic. Here you will be seen by Gynos who specialize in the treatment and maintenance of positive HPV. This clinic has access to high powered microscopes and machines that will allow them to diagnose and treat the squamous cells immediately. A colposcopy clinic is a great place to be when dealing with HPV. Keep a record of everything going on with your body and ensure you tell them. I have been with a colposcopy clinic since 2009. If you do not already know the strains of HPV you show positive for they will find out. There are three that are high level. Epithelial squamous Cell can show in other parts of your body and cause an infection Like feeling in your body. I have a Gyno, colorectal and ENT Thoracic specialists I see every 6 months along with lab work every 6 months . The plan is to catch any changes before they get out of control. Also, write down any questions leading up to your appointment, bring someone with you (if possible). And wear comfortable clothes. I know from my clinic if they see something they take care of it right then and there if possible. So sometimes it’s a pretty long wait. I experienced the night sweats, increased labs, abnormal bleeds and my cervix was swollen shut as well. They have searched and tested with no actual findings to date. The symptoms have increased and decreased for periods of time over the years with no true finding on the root cause. Hope I have helped you a little and good luck you’re headed in the right direction. Please let me know how you make out. This forum is a wonderful place to sound off.

DEMAND  uterus. Stopped paying for medical insurance I couldn't use.

Feb, 2013 doc told me "nothing wrong". March 2013 gyno said I had cancer. She neglected to tell me that she was notifying cancer board that it was "cervical" cancer. 

April 2013 gyno at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance said "Metastisized stage IV endometrial cancer". Amasing that is exactly what I had been "whining & complaining" for 15 years. Docs believed I never went to any medical care. Yet Goff was the 10th doc I saw for my imaginary cancer.  

PLEASE get very good medical care. Because of incompetent doctors, including gyno here, I have permenent side affects from chemo, that onocology insistes is a figment of my imagination to this day.

What type of after effects from chemotherapy do you have? I believe I have after effects from chemo and radiation but doctors don’t think so .

You should look for Cervugid Ovules. My doctor prescribed me 2 courses of this treatment. Each course represents 3 boxes of this medicine. Each night i used one ovule for 12 consecutive nights.

For me the treatment worked
