Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index


I had an abnormal pap smear in March which interpreated it as moderate squamous dysplasia.
Then I was scheduled for a Colpo on May 14. They did a Colpospic exam on me and also did a biopsy.
Here is the report back from the Colpo and Biopsy:
[COLOR="red"]1. Mild squamous dysplasia (CIN I) with koilocytic change
2. Benign endocervical glandular epithelioum.
3. Mild acute and chronic endocervicities[/COLOR]
I asked my family dr. she said I should do the follow up pap in 6 month,

Now just today, 3 month after, Sep 2. when I went to my family dr. for a normal check up, the nurse looked up my profile and told me that I should go for a LEEP. and family dr. showed me another piece of paper which also issued in May( they did NOT show me that paper when I visit for the Colpo report).
It shows the gene's comment:
[COLOR="Red"]Colposcopic examination revealed an area of atypical whitened epithelium involving the anterior lip of the cervix. Directed biopsy revealed mild dysplasia.
In view of the discrepency between Pap smear , colposcopic and pathology findings, a diagnostic LEEP excision is recommended.[/COLOR]


Now, I understand he send me for a LEEP because of the discrepency between pap, colpo and biopsy. but why??? Isnt biopsy the most accurate method to review how the cells grow? Isnt pap smear just a screening method?

I live in Vancouver, Canada. I guess no HPV test is done here.

I am 27 years old, not married, no kids and would love to have kids in the future.
I am in a delima right now, I really dont want to do LEEP. so afraid...

Anyone here who has been suffered a LEEP procedure could answer me several questions?
1. how many days the pain would last for?
2. how many days would the bleeding would last?( excluding the MC part)
3. Compared to Colpo, how much more pain is LEEP?
4. Would a LEEP preocdure affect my future pregnancy or result in miscarriage?

Thank you soooo much for all girls here~! Any suggestion is much appreciated~!
