    Several years ago I received my first abnormal pap and was told that I was positive for HPV. My doctor was not concerned because I had my 3 series guardasil shots as a teenager and she ensured me that my body would clear the virus. I returned a year later and my pap results returned as normal. I then returned a year later and had my second abnormal pap. I had my first colpo biopsy and the results came back as normal. Then returned another year later and had again another abnormal pap and had my second colpo that came back normal. Then this happened for the 3rd time. So, I decided to change doctors and have another opinion. This doctor did a pap and it came back abnormal, we waited 6 months and another came back abnormal, and of course ended up having a 4th colpo. Unfortunately, the results came back as abnormal, showing I was one stage before having stage 1 cervical cancer. At this time the dr recommended LEEP. I had no question about it I was absolutely having this done because I wanted this entire experience to end. Well, I had the procedure done in May 2020 and would say I think recovery went very well. However, about 2 months post op, I started to experience pain that I have never experienced before. The first time it was after rough sex so I wasn’t too shocked but it was such an intense pain that I cried. And now sometimes it can be a throbbing pain but will only last a few minutes and sometimes its just a feeling that I know something has been done to me.. almost like I can feel a scar inside of me if I move in certain positions..

    I have recently, October 2020, visited my Gyno for the unknown pain. The doctor did a physical exam and said my cervix looks like it has had the LEEP procedure done but otherwise normal in appearance, a Pap smear was not done. I have not figured out what is causing the pain.
