I just got diagnosed with HPV 53 which I read online is low risk but everything that has come back thus far from pathology has been high risk.  Apparently I got this from my partner of three years but previously I have tested clean.  We've done two pap tests and something where they look up there with a camera and spray a solution to see where the patches are.  I'm just worried about having a normal sex life, waiting three months for another checkup, and these cells being high risk.  There's so much conflicting information.  I actually went in for cramping due to my Mirena implant.  Anyone else know much more info on #53?  There has never been any symptoms.

BTW, they are talking about early stages of it developing into cervical cancer.  I guess that ties into the high risk of the cells turning into cancerous.  Sorry, should have cleared up the whole high risk term.  I understand it's a risk of spreading but I meant high risk as far as developing into cancer.  Sorry!
