Hello- I was diagnosed with hpv a year ago. I did the colposopy and it came back with low grade cell changes and about a month later I had cryotherapy done. 3 months after that I still had an abnormal Pap test and still tested positive for hpv. Another 3 months later I had an ASCUS result, positive for HPV. Now that it's a year later I had a NORMAL PAP but I am still positve for HPV. My doctor said to come back in 6 mos for another testing. I don't if this is good or bad and it's so confusing. I looked online to get answers but everything I've read was about women initially havinmg normal PAP/postive HPV results...only for it to later turn into abnormal PAP and HPV positive results. I seem to be getting better ( I think) but having a hard time getting clear answers. Can anyone help?
