Hi Kate! I'm glad you are able to get to the doctor soon! There's just no reason to suffer! I hope she figures out what is the problem and you get immediate relief. GL! And let us know what happens!

ASCUS=Atypical Squamous Cells of Undetermined Significance. It's an abnormal pap result that is "vague." There are cellular changes but why cannot be determined. There are no lesions, tho. ASCUS, in terms of level of severity, is pretty minor and very common. The results could be from infection, inflammation, etc. I have a history of cervicitis so I'm thinking that is what is going on. But, since I have a history of severe dysplasia, my doctor is keeping a close eye on the "changes." But, since it was "only" ASCUS, all I need to do is get a repeat pap @ 6 months--which is in November. I'm not worried--after a couple years of dealing with this I've become kinda "immune" to worrying. I figure all I can do is keep up with the paps and go from there. I'm fortunate, I guess you can say, in that I'm done having children so I have the avenue of hyst. if it comes down to that.

Anyhow, hope all is well this afternoon! I'll send some positive vibes your way!
