What does "no significant abnormalities" mean?

I just had a colposcopy done to follow up on an ASCUS pap with high risk HPV.  I got thre results today, which were "no significant abnormalities".  The lady explained that that meant I didn't have anything preconcerous, but she didn't see to know what it DID mean.  She just said I needed another pap in 6 months.  Can anyone please translate?  Thank you so much.
