One what?: What you are referring to when you say that the "one done" was abnormal? If a gynecologist has examined you and did a PAP smear, and is now telling you that you should have colposcopy you should take her seriously and go forward with the procedure. As time goes on and the disease progresses there are fewer solutions and they are increasingly unpleasant. If you write back your age can help.
