Last feb. i had a pap smear done, it came back abnormal and gyno. said i have HPV. fast forward to this april and i have another abnormal pap and still have HPV. Gyno wants to do 2 different test on me. But why? at my appointment he didnt say. (i forgot to ask)
What would be the reason for doing a biopsy and some other test? if he already knows which hpv i have.

  • HPV can cause cervical cancer, so they are probably ruling that out.

  • Yes they may want to look at the cells to make sure there is no cancer. Just a prevention.

  • I have HPV as well. I am sure that he just wants to do a check for Cancer. That is why it is very very important for women with HPV to see thier Gyno yearly.
