Great to hear your UC is improving.
What exactly were the results of the pap....abnormal in what way?
I do agree that meds (and probably the pred since it's a synthetic hormone and will influence your hormoneal balance) can influence the readings...but the consistency is something that says you have to be diligent and them done much more often.
The dysplasia...not a reading to take lightly...and should be retested to make sure that the readings of "normal" is consistent.
