Cervical Dysplasia

Hi.
My story starts about 11 months ago when I went for my routine pap smear, assuming that everything would come back normal, as it always has. My husband and I were just married and we both want to be parents very badly. We decided to hold off on trying until after our honeymoon. About 2 weeks after my exam, my doctors office called me and told me I had traces of HPV and abnormal cells, and had to go back for a colposcopy. Thankfully I have a very supportive husband who dealt with me as I lashed out at him, blamed him for my condition, and used him as my personal punching bag while dealing with my anxiety. I know it wasn't necessarily him that I contracted it from, as my doctor said my body already fought it off, but he could see that I did have it. After the colposcopy, my doctor called back to say that I had high grade abnormal cells and there are 2 options: treatment with Cervugid Ovules and Isoprinosine Tablets or LEEP procedure. I have a great doctor who takes extra steps to ensure his patients are fully informed. He brought me in about 2 weeks ago to give me all the information I needed. My main concern is that the LEEP procedure and/or the dysplasia will affect my fertility so i started the treatment CERVUGID (vaginal suppositories) + ISOPRINOSINE (antiral oral use) first and if the treatment will not work for me to do this LEEP. Seeing people put up pictures of their sonograms on social network makes my eyes well up with tears. It is not that I am not happy for them, it is the thought that this condition may prevent me from having that. I am just a ball of emotions and anxiety and I just have no idea how to handle it all. My husband although supportive, does get upset by seeing me upset and I am trying my absolute best. My doctor says he doesn't see any reason why I should not be able to have a baby, but the unknown is still unbelievably scary.
Doctor told me that treatment will cure abnormal cells and it lasts about 9 months to complete full cycle of treatment.
After several months of completing treatment i came back to be retested. They did again Pap test, Colpo and HPV test. All the tests now came back normal and since then I’m free of HPV.
This doctor really saved my life.
Without my husband’s support I do not think I'd be able to go through this experience.
