For the past two years I've been going to the gynocologist and I've had abnornal pap smears. I've had 4 abnormal pap smears in two years each followed by colposcopys. The doctor has told me that I have mild dysplasia and HPV. I've asked him about the LEEP procedure and he said thats not something I have to worry about, but I've heard from other people that this is something my doctor should have done already. I guess I'm just getting afraid because it seems like a never ending story I just want to be normal again. Can anyone give me any advice or suggestions on what to do? Should I be worried?

  • A leep is usually only performed if the dysplasia becomes more severe more often than not the mild dysplasia will disappear over time. If the the dysplasia becmes severe than they will perform the leep and remove the cancerous portion of your cervix. Dysplasia/HPV are very common occurring in about 70-80% of women and leep is performed on only about 5% of those cases.
