Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index

I am having a colposcopy on 10/5 and am wondering how long the average wait is to receive the biopsy results. From what I've read, it can be anywhere from a few days to 2 weeks. Can anyone help me out with this?

Also, I am wondering about post-colposcopy procedures for women who are finished w/child-bearing. I am 44 and do not plan to have any more kids. Is it more likely that, since I have HPV (thanks to a philandering husband), my doctor will recommend a hysterectomy rather than a LEEP, LOOP, cryo, etc. if it turns out that I have cervical cancer? I am not a "gloom and doom" type person by nature, but I am trying to be realistic as to what I might have to expect.

Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi Claudia
I had the results from my colposcopy in a week. I had the proceedure on a Friday and the results were back the following Friday.

I just had a Leep last Friday, Sept. 15th and called the office today to see if the results were back yet and they said 2 weeks, so i guess the time differs for each proceedure.

Im 41 and wondering the same things myself, my family is complete and i dont know what the next step is if the results of the LEEP are bad.

I know one starting to HATE Fridays.. :(

Try to stay calm...believe me i know how hard it is. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
