Hiya, four years ago I too had abnormal cells present and they vary. the next procedure from a pap smear is a colposcopy, basically they just go a bit further and take a bit more to test. I had mine done through the gynae clinic at my local hospital. This test showed I had squamous cells and CIN I and CIN II present, cancerous crap basically. From there the next procedure is a LLETZ (Lower Loop Excise something something) Again going further and taking bigger sample, a portion of the cervix, I was knocked out for that procedure. But with all the worry of it my last sample came back clear, fine, no bad cells at all!!! So the pap and colp just happend to get the bad bits and there was nothing more to find. I NEVER go over one year without a pap smear now smile So don't stress I say, it depends what was found and how much, but if it worries you get a copy of the results and discuss further with your GP or another source, the clinic sisters are really helpful I find.
I too had very similar to this PP resulting in CIN III cells present. I too ended up having Lletz treatment.
Its weird that hey are waiting 6 months to test again. When my original pap came back abnormal, I was sent to have the next procedure (colposcopy) done within a few weeks.
Not to worry you, but I'd have another one done or go to different doctor.I'm sure its all fine.. Everything ended up being fine for me. I had a check-up 3 months later, and all was normal. Another 3 months after that I got pregnant. I still have regular paps every 12months, and am currently pregnant with baby #2 and had no problems...
