After receiving news of my gazillionth abnormal pap smear, I now await my gazillionth (realistically more like 15th or 16th—I’ve lost track) colposcopy/biopsy. I know bodies are resilient (and that biopsy samples are tiny) but I can’t help wondering if tissue samples are regularly taken from a cervix if at some point there’ll be no cervix left? Thinking about this upcoming procedure (ok, watching the You Tube video didn’t help—what kind of freaks put colposcopies online? I'm not even linking to it.) is actually making my arms weak and my stomach jump around (not enough to induce emotional vomiting, of course).
