If you do have HPV and it is active they may make you deliver by c section. Many times mothers with HPV deliver vaginally end up with kids with HPV in their throat causing tons of problems. Putting ointment in the baby's eyes to prevent infection does nothing for that. Now it is possible if they are calling it "Low grade HPV" that they can go in remove the cells and you'll be in the clear and it won't have any bearing on delivery or the birth at all. Only the drs can really tell you in your case what will happen. I had an abnormal pap the proceedure to remove some cells and delivered vaginally just fine and never had an abnormal pap again. It wasn't HPV just a few abnormal cells and they didn't know why. They have to do further testing to find out anything.
