In March I had an ASCUS pap positive for high risk HPV. I had a colpo done in May that confirmed mild dysplasia. The doctor recommended Leep because the ECC came back pos for mild dysplasia as well. His gut instinct was that it was a false positive because the other areas might have contaminated the ECC. Nonetheless they did the LEEP on Friday. I am so scared right now about hysterectomy--or am I jumping the gun? I don't know anyone that has gone through this so I would love any helpful advice or encouragement. Thanks.

Hi, Mel, how was results of your cone biopsy? I'm having the same problem , but still not decided have a LEEp or not.
I had the exact same thing. The ECC has a very high false positive rate according to my doctor because if there is dysplasia close to the OS (canal) it can contaminate the ecc very easily. I did a cone leep as well and it was definitely the best decision for me. You don't want to wait this out especially if there is a posibility of CIN in the canal.

Did your doctor mention the possibility of a false positive to you? Either way I would get it done. The LEEP has really no bearing on child birth. The worst case scenario would be to have the cervix stitched later on in pregancy and be put on bed rest. Was this your first abnormal pap?
I will post my results after my appt tomorrow. The LEEP is a very safe procedure and one leep will have zero affect on your ability to children in the future. If you don't get the abnormal cells out, that will have more of a bearing on your ability to have kids because if it gets to the cancer stage you will have to get a hysterectomy.

I had an ascus pap in March and my biopsy in May read cin I in all 3 areas, including the ECC. I had the LEEP done 2 weeks ago.
Thanks, Mel, looks like we both have the same situation :-)
Knowing that someone are having the same treatments helps me a lot.
I had may abnormal Pap in May, biopsy in June and Leep is scheduled for next week.
Will wait for your osting with LEEp results.
Have a great day
Tatiana

Ti 1972,
was this your first abnormal pap? is the doctor pushing LEEP for you?
Mel, I had 2 abnormal pap's before, but each time biopsy was negative, said-no any dysplosia found. Then each time in 6 month I had normal Pap. So last summer I had abnormal Pap, then again normal in November, and this year, in my 6 month check-in I had again abnormal Pap and this time biopsy shows
CIN-1.
I didn't speak with the same doctor -I made an appointment-but they canceled it-doctor was busy with something. He told me about LEEP as it's the only way for me, I didn't know too much about it. Now, when I read a lot in Internet, spoke with a naturopathic doctor, I see- it might be an alternative.
I had a second oppinion app. yestarday-but new doctor didn't do any colpo, just took a look at my biopsy tests and said , if CIN-1 in the ECC biopy-I needed a LEEP. Hard to argue with him on it.
:-)
So I must decide myself-go for a LEEP now or wait 3 months, tried suppliments and so on, and then do Pap and biopsy again..

Hi, Mel! It's great news!!! Very happy for you!!
The only thing, maybe you didn't need a LEEP it you ECC was negative from the beginning. I maybe have the same situation, last year my ECC was negative and pap was normal. I'll meet with my doctor next Monday before the LEEP (which should be next Friday) and will discuss all pros/cons of LEEP and possibility if ECC is false positive.
But who knows, maybe it's really positive :-) :-(
