I am new here, but I am hoping someone somewhere out there can offer advice for my situation. I had my first abnormal pap smear a year ago this July, followed by a colposcopy which showed HGSIL, followed by a LEEP. I repeated this entire process four months later because of the same diagnosis. I just found out last week that my last pap smear done on 6/15 was also abnormal, so I am scheduled for another colpo on 7/8. I have read everything out there about HPV and dysplasia. My concern/question is: It looks like I will need a third LEEP, but my Dr. told me he has never done three on one woman before. I am 27, I do not have children, and right now my only concern is myself. This dyplasia just keeps coming back, and it's severe, and I can't find any information on what other options there are besides a partial hysterectomy. Even though I do not have kids, given the situation with the recurrent HGSIL, is partial hysterectomy way off base as a cure for this? I don't know if I am jumping the gun, but I can tell you that my life has been on hold for the past year because of the numerous tests/doctor visits/procedures. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
