    Re: Smear test fear

    Today is my smear test and Iíve been awake since 5am with worry. My appointments at 10am. Iím just sitting here in fear thinking that the nurse is going to find something scary and that will be it for me. I will not be able to cope Iíve had months of worrying constantly about this smear because I knew it was coming up I just need a bit of relief and some of this worry taken off my shoulders but Iím so scared thatís not going to happen and Iím going to have to go through more waiting and worrying. I canít stand it I feel sick to my stomach. I donít want anxiety to take over me again and ruin everything. I want to cry but so numb with fear I canít. Iíve never felt this way before about my smear I donít understand whatís going on with me

    Re: Smear test fear

    Hi guys Iíve had my smear, the nurse made me bleed a little but Iíve had that happen to me before so I know itís Norma. Everything was ok it was a bit uncomfortable but I really wasnít relaxed I was so tense. I will get my letter in 2-3 weeks. So now just waiting for results she explained to me about hPV and that 60-70% of women have it and that if I get a positive result not to worry it will be fine and sorted. So I feel a little less stress but of course Iím gonna now worry about results l. Such is life *sigh

    HPV is super, super common anymore. And actually it can kind of go dormant and just disappear eventually. It did for me!!

    Yes Iíve heard. I wish this was more well known to women because I think it frightens them so much if they receive a positive result for hPV they think they have something really bad wrong with them when actually most of us probably have had it at some point.

    Re: Smear test fear

    So had my smear test last Tuesday Iíve been trying to keep busy not think about the results. But today Iíve started to panic and worry 😩 stupid anxiety leave me alone!!! I know I wonít be getting any results today because itís a bank holiday so no post. I just wish I knew l, I hate not knowing, I hate waiting! I know Iím not the only one going through this but I feel like I am 😢 my last results I got quite quickly so Iím hoping it will be the same this time. Iíve got so much on this week and I donít want this worrying to get in the way of enjoying things. My 2 year old starts nursery next Monday and I want to be present for it and not have my mind elsewhere worrying. Donít really know what Iím asking for here I think I just feel like writing down how Iím feeling on here is therapeutic lol.
    Anyways hopefully I wonít have to wait to long and all will be ok 🤞🏻
