Scared, abnormal smear =(

Hi all, I am 22 and frightened... I have wanted a smear done for ages but have been refused on the NHS until I'm 25. So I paid £50 to have a private 1 at a Marie Scopes centre, just to be sure as everywhere else offers smears to younger women and I'm convinced this is just a cost-cutting measure in England.

Anyway, I got a phone call to say I need to come back in 3 months for a repeat smear as mine was very mildly abnormal. Now I am frightened and wondering what is likely to have caused it.

Could it be:


My age?

The fact that I'd had sex about 14 hours prior to the test?

The fact that I was coming down with thrush? (didn't realise this until a few days later)

Or is it most likely to mean I have a problem and will need treatment if I get another abnormal smear?


Am v.worried, I almost wish I never went in the first place! =(
