Does anyone know about HPV?

I have only slept with my ex...but hes been sleeping around and i just got an unnormal pap back and they said i have high risk hpv.... the kind that leads to cervical cancer. does anyone know anything about this? im kinda worried about it. they took samples to send to the lab to find out if its precancer or actual cancer. guess it will be nice to know that im not alone in this.

  • HPV is commonly known as warts. I just got a call back from my dr. today and I had a abnormal pap, but I tested neg for HPV I had a leep done 4 years ago it was from pre-cancer cells I go to the dr wed to find out what kind of abnormal cells i have hopefully it is just inflamorty cells and not the cancer cells. Good luck, i hope you dont have warts, also know you can have them even without a outbreak.

  • I am with the previous poster. I had several abnormal paps. Then, my body seemed to clean itself up. I have had normal paps.
