Im 32 years old with 3 kids. 6-7 months ago I found out I was pregnant and had a Pap Smear done. 11 days later I had a miscarriage and the pap was redone a week later. That came back with atypical glandular cells, and ASC and I also have a high risk HPV. My dr done the 2nd round of tests that I need done every 4 months for a year. I am kinda nervous and dont really know what to expect. Does this mean I have cancer or precancerous cells? Is there a possiblitiy that everything is going to be ok and nothing major wrong with me? Will I be able to have any more child if I wished to? Please any advice will help!
first of all, it is very rare for an abnormal pap smear to be related to ovarian cancer.
occasionally abnormal glandular cells from an ovarian or fallopian tube cancer can float down the uterus and be picked up in a cervical pap smear
However HPV infection only occurs in the lining of the lower genital tract : anus,vulva, vagina, and cervix
So most likely your pap smear is related to a change on the cervix.
it sounds like you are being taking care of well
sometimes it is important to perform a LEEP excision if you have persistent AGUS paps. please ask your doctor about this
