Sometimes people like to have sex with people that have had gardiisil. That is why I'm curious.

You guys that have had cancerous cells, do you mind sharing how advanced it was when you were treated?


I had CIN II dysplasia, nearly CIN III. It was a really large lesion that covered half of the surface of my cervix so my doctor was concerned because it developed very quickly (I'd had a normal PAP the year before). I had a really awesome doctor who did my LEEP and she managed to get the whole thing in one session, although it hurt like a bisque because she had to go down the sides of my cervix to get it all.

I think doctors are reluctant to mention the C word when women have abnormal PAPs because they don't want you to freak out. I was lucky that I had really great doctors who were totally straight with me about everything. My GP, who diagnosed me initially, even drew a diagram of my cervix to show the extent of the abnormal cells.

I had PAPs every 3 months for a year and then I was given the all-clear, but I have to go back at the one year mark for a follow up.
