i turned 25 in december & had my first smear test last month. wasnt a pleasant experience & the nurse said "see you in 3 years", excellent. anyway, had my results last week, and they are "abnormal". apparantly i have abnormal cells called...dyskyrosis (which is common in many women) and that they should turn "normal" again. i have to go back in 6 months for a repeat test and then if they are still abnormal will have to have treatment!!!! i was a little freaked out to say the least. anyway, my inlaws are here visiting from Italy, and my FIL is a gynocologist. OH decided to bring up my abnormal result over dinner. (cringe). his reaction really made me worry. he said that in italy they do smears every 2 years starting from 18, if an abormal result is found they do a colposcopy straight away (rather than waiting 6 months to see if they cells change again!!). as it happens, me and oh are planning to go to italy next month for a vist and he wants me to go to his studio there to have the colposcopy thingy!!! has anyone had this? has anyone had an abnormal result change normal?!?! any advice would be great. sorry to rant on but im a little freaked!
