I went in to see my gyno after not going for the last 8 years, just to make sure everything is ok, make sure I am doing all that I can for my eggs. They told me i had a minor UTI and gave me meds for it, also suggested I might have Tyroid problems, maybe some abnormal Hormones. Then I get an email from them saying Notify Patient of abnormal Pap. ASCUS but can not rule out more significant change. Colposcopy is advised. Is this something I should be worried about?
