A question about my abnormal paps

I would like for a medical professional to answer this question. For the last couple of years, my paps have been abnormal. My most recent pap which was about 7 months ago showed LGSIL but my colposcopy came back normal.
My dr scheduled me for a repeat pap 6 months later since the colpo was normal. Well the 6 month repeat pap is about 4 weeks away and I am nervous.
What does it mean when a pap shows these types of abnormalties but the colposcopy is normal? Should I be worried? I was also diagnosed with high risk hpv about a year ago or more and I am 40 years old.

HI,
High risk HPV and abnormal pap smears will need follow up regularly and as and when the lesions are significant, necessary treatment may be initiated. Hope this helps.
Take care and good luck.
