Colposcopy?

My pap smear results have indicated CIN 1 twice. The pathologists recommend a colposcope. Please tell me more about this procedure? What are the chances of CIN 2 / 3 developing? Thank you

A colposcopy involves looking at the cervix through a big miscroscope to identify the affected areas and to be sure that there is no CIN 2/3 as the pap smear is not completely accurate in determining this. There is often a progression to CIN 2/3 if untreated, though this takes several years.
