“This test was performed using the APTIMA HPV Assay (Gen -Probe Inc.).
This assay detects E6/E7 viral messenger RNA (mRNA) from 14 high-risk HPV types (16,18,31,33,35,39,45,51,52,56,58,59,66,68)”
What exactly does this mean? I plan on following up with my physician and ask more questions, but does this mean they only detected strain 6/7 or did it detect the bad strains? My physician said follow up in a year and that there were no abnormal cells.
I had an abnormal pap (probably in 2014 or 2015) but they blew it off and did not use the words “high-risk” is it possible it’s still same infection? I’ve only ever slept with two people one of which cheated on me (2011-2014) and my partner now where it’s monogamous and we’re talking about marriage. All STD tests came back clean, I THOUGHT I had the HPV shots in high school, I called today and find out I never finished the series.
I have a lot of anxiety so can someone shed some light on what exactly these results mean??
