  • i was pretty pissed about it at first. good news...it usually clears up on its own. bad news....it also usually comes back and you have to have it biopsied every year if it doesnt go away completely. I've had it on and off for almost five years and its not any worse than it was when i found out.

  • I dont but my sister does she ended up having low grade cervical cancer at the age of 17 and had part of her cervix removed... but I am happy to report it grew back and she is expecting her second child. So many people have HPV nowadays I think its something like 1 in 4 and most men dont get tested, its sad but fortunately with regular checkups and pap test your life can be relatively normal..good luck

  • it sucks but odds are that if you been with someone that wasnt a virgin, even if you used a condom, you may have it. when i was 19 i thought i might have had it, my doctor said it was a possibility, but here i am 7 years later with no problems or symptoms. just make sure you are getting yearly checkups so you can catch the first signs of anything dangerous
