Jeanie it is funny that you should mention this. I just underwent a colposcopy this morning as I have had three papsmears in a row come back abnormal and as I had a hysterectomy almost three years ago, where my cervix was, there are four spots of something. He is testing me for the HP Virus, but feels that it is just a virus and not cancer. Also I am in menopause which I thought was from the hysterectomy, but no, it is from the Lupus. The gyn. said that the Lupus has caused my ovaries to fail which in turn put me into early menopause, (I am only 39). So now we wait to find out what the results of the colposcopy are and the bloodwork.
I had endometriois 13 years ago and had an ablasion done then, then it came back with a vengance 2 and a half years ago and holy smokes it was down hill from there. I was diagnosed with Lupus after my hysterectomy, very shortly after. So I can say it has caused me some grief,lots of grief in fact. We are praying that it isn't cancer and is just a virus that will go away on its own.
Good luck with your problem, I hope you get some relief.
