Recurrent CIN III
Sep 10, 2007
Hi,

Approximately 3 years ago I had a LEEP procedure done for CIN III. It was caused by the HPV virus. Two years after the operation I had a period that had lasted for 3 weeks. My GP did a pap smeer and the results were clear so I did not see the specialist.

I have now had a period for almost 10 weeks and I have an appointment to see the gynecologist this Friday. I do not have any infections. Naturally, I am thinking that I have recurrent CIN III. I have done a lot of reading on treatments for recurrent CIN II and III and I am wondering if other people have had success with any of them. The treatments that I have read about are listed below:

1) Histerectomy (complete or partial).

2) Indole-3-Carbinol and Folic Acid supplements.

3) Therapeutic vaccination with MVA E2.

I have read that good results were obtained using therapeutic vaccination with MVA E2 to eliminate precancerous lesions. I realize that at this point I do not know if it is recurrent CIN, but I am preparing myself for it.

The gynecologist said that I would not be able to get rid of the HPV virus. Is this correct? Any feedback would be appreciated.
Hi there kat,

First off, I'm sorry to hear of your troubles and heavy periods-- that sounds horrible!

When you got your pap smear done after your LEEP, you said it was clear, correct? So I'm assuming that you did not have dysplasia at the time our your doctor would've caught it.

I have never heard anything of dysplasia causing abnormally heavy periods. Dysplasia has no symptoms. *However*, it is possible that your heavy periods are due to your LEEP? This, too, is a complication I've never heard of. It's very possibly (and quite likely) that your heavy period are due to some other reason.

Obviously, the best thing is to get checked out by a gynecologist who can provide you with concrete answers. Even if you had recurrent CIN III, this should not be causing you to bleed so heavily. But the best would be to wait and talk to you doctor.

Also, there is no way of getting rid of HPV. Your body can recognize and suppress the strain, but you'll always have it. That's why good health and nutrition is key in boosting your immune system which, in turn, will help suppress the virus you're carrying.

I hope this helps! I hope it all turns out well when you see your doctor. Take care!
thanks largirl 81

When i had a papsmear 3 yrs ago it was cin1 with HPV
when i got a cone biopsy its said i had server Dysplasia with cin 111
i too then had been bleeding none stop the same.
Ok first off I would like to say that you dont actually know you have reacurrent CIN III, so please do not panic and jump to conclusions until you know for definate.

It may just be something completely different which has caused your cycle to go abit crazy it is not necessarily CIN III or II etc.

I know how you feel though as I have had CIN III also but when I recently had a 3week bleed I had a colposcopy and was told everything fine! Not its all calmed down but I must admit I did think the worst!

yes its true there is no treatment for this HPV virus but we are apparently supposed to fight it eventually and it then leaves the body, but lies dormant in our systems.
However 1 in 3 people have the HPV virus at least one time in their lives (according to my Gynocologist) and it doesnt always cause pre-cancerous cells but 80% of the time these cell changes are due to the HPV virus.

I still dont know if HPV is what caused my CIN III as I have been with the same partner for 6years and before him only slept with 3 people. however I guess thats enough to beable to get HPV.

I know you are only preparing yourself for the worst and I totally understand but maybe at this time instead of preparing for the worst we should all be thinking positive instead?!
