  • I had HPV an dI had to have it removed. They took the cheese cutter looking thing and cut it out. I have to have paps every 6 months. So far so good. Alot of bleeding after, a bit of pain, but keep checking.

  • I have never had an abonormal pap but my mom would have one every few years. They couldn't figure out why her paps were coming back abnormal so eventually she just got a hysterectomy just because the waiting for test results was killing her. Sometimes it's nothing and other times it can just mean you have some abnormal cells (not always cancerous) that they will have to remove. Not a big deal. Just try your best not to worry about it. Usually if you have kept up with your paps every year, if one comes back abnormal and there is a problem, they almost always have caught it in time.

  • Your HPV is probably back. HPV doesn't always clear up completely and can stay with you for the rest of your life. Although, in some cases it goes away and never comes back.

  • I have had an abnormal pap. I think it was because I had had sex recently. Anyway, the next was normal.
