The first doctors appointment

When I finally decided to go see a doctor, I did a little research and asked my friends where the best place to go would be. I decided on Coeur Obgyn. They were great there. I was completely comfortable. I did not feel judged at all. I saw Jessica Brown in the office. She is a Nurse Practitioner. She was kind and friendly and made me comfortable.

This appointment was in April 2018. It was normal just like any other well woman check. She said everything looked good and I was sent on my way. I got a call a few days later that my pap results had come in and they were abnormal so they wanted to see me again for a colposcopy. A colposcopy is a procedure to closely examine your cervix. While she was looking at my cervix, she took a small biopsy to have a better idea of what was actually going on.


I got the results from that biopsy a few days later and they came back as CIN 3. Which is also classified as high risk cervical dysplasia, or pre-cancerous cells. She recommended me get a Leep done to remove those bad cells to lessen my chance of it turning into cancer. At least that was the plan. So we went ahead and scheduled the leep. I was to have that done in June.
