Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index


LAgirl81:
As far as your question about the pill...after researching and reading as much as I could about it, I have learned that there are numerous studies out there that have linked low levels of vitamins A and B complex with cervical dysplasia. Oral contraceptives can increase a woman's chances of having an abnormal pap smear. The pill has been shown to lower B vitamin levels in the blood. In women who are already lacking in nutrients, the pill can set up a slight deficiency state. High doses of folic acid have been used to reverse some cervical dysplasia in women who develop it while taking it. That is why it's good to be taking a multivitamin rich in B complex and containing folic acid. I have found that the suggested amount of folic acid you should take if you have a pap in the LGSIL category is about 5mg every day. My understanding is that this is a pretty high dose. You may have to get a prescription from your doctor for it. You should also be taking a good B complex vitamin and multivitamin-mineral, along with adding antioxidants to your diet. And if you smoke...stop.

Again, this is just what I have found in my own personal research. I'm sure you will hear other great suggestions and advice from other ladies...

Good luck and God speed...

Tori
