had your doctor performed a biopsy after the hpv results ? this is crutial as hpv is the no 1 cause of cervical cancer.I recommend that you see a gynaecologist.

hi thanks for a reply...well i got my pap smear results and it has now come back with no hpv at all but has come back with low grade cell changes,but my doctor and other doctors in the surgery have no idea of why my results go from high grade CIN2 in 2003 which i have a cone biopsy for which removed the cancerous parts,then every year up till this year except 06 i had hpv but nothing is done till now because doctors are confused on why this is going on so i have to now make an appointment with the gynaecologist and get a coloscopy done to see what they think..im hoping all this wont stop me ever having kids as its hard enough to get pregnant as it is..im lost and bit scared..

needadvice,

Perhaps my story can help? I'm also 24. When my gynecologist told me that I had cervical dysplasia that was most likely caused by HPV, I freaked. I had never even heard of HPV. I started eating well, low sugars and high fruits and veggies and taking vitamin supplements. 6 months later, had a followup pap hoping that it would be gone, but the cervical dysplasia was still there.
I had felt like the healthy eating and supplements helped, but that I needed something more to fight the HPV. Around 2 months later, I saw a Naturopathic doctor hoping for some alternate advice and started taking Papillex. After 4 months on Papillex and continuing my healthy lifestyle, I went for a 3rd pap, and this time it came out clear and free of cervical dysplasia. Now I am so happy that I could cry. I want to share this story because I know that Papillex helped me to fight the cervical dysplasia out of my system and I feel stronger than ever.
I wish you luck.

I am not saying this to alarm you, but please don't wait until October to see your gynecologist. If they can't see you sooner, then find another gyn that will.

I have had vaginal and vulvar dysplasia for about five years. At first, I didn't understand that the HPV virus had caused all of this. I have had many, many biopsies and have been seeing a oncologist gyn for a year. I have repeated areas of dysplasia. However, the oncologist gyn told me as long as I keep my appointments every three months and received a colposcopy that my condition should remain in check. He said the people who get in trouble are those that do not keep their appointments and do not keep up with their care. The positive side is as long you're on top of your care, according to my doctor, the less chance the condition will progress. Good luck to you!

We read now that the 'medical community' has linked HPV with cervical cancer. I lost a friend to cervical cancer. A condition that could be precancerous can move very quickly.

Just a thought but if you are sexually active with a partner, that partner should be examined for venereal warts on his genetalia. This can be difficult if they are small and is best done by putting gauze pads soaked in vinegar around the penis for about 15 minutes. Most clinicians don't have that kind of time, but if you get cleared then get a reoccurence it should be checked. One other thing we can now do typing on these lesions and know that certain types are more likely to progress into cervical cancer.
