Abnormal Pap Question

I received news today that my Pap from last week was abnormal.  They said it was negative for HPV and the doctor wanted to check again in 6 months.  Is this proper protocol?  I am 38 and have never had an abnormal pap.  I get one every year and actually the way it fell this time, the last one I had was 10 months ago.  Is it time to worry?

Nope not at all. Abnormal paps are nothing to worry about unless your Dr says the abnormalities are severe, seeing as he said to come back and check in 6 months, that shows the changes are very minor and will probably go away by themselves. Any treatment right now wouldn't be wise so in 6 months if abnormalities are still there or if they have progressed then the Dr may want to do some treatment or just monitor you some more
