Ask a Gynecologist and Get Answers to Your Ob-Gyn Questions ASAP
Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
Instead of a PAP - I would suggest what is known as a colposcopy - this is like a PAP except we LOOK at the cervix with a microscope to check and sometimes we do a very Small biopsy to send to a pathologist to check for any precancerous cells.
I hope this elps

Do the hormones I am on have any effect on this?
No, your hormones do not have an effect on this
this is not a hormonal effect on the cervix, unlike the uterus
so, this is usually due to a virus called HPV - Human Papilloma Virus
Is this an indication of an HPV?
so it is Important to get this further evaluated like I suggested and If you have this dysplasia - I would suggest either a LEEP or a hysterectomy so that you do not get cancer
Yes it is an indication of HPV
You could have gotten HPV within the past few year or even Decades ago -
so hard to say when you got HPV infection
OMG this really concerns me. After all these years.
do not be concerned
this is why PAP smears are done - to PREVENT cancer and to check for dysplasias
so please do not be concerned about this
we CAN treat Dysplasia very easily
Thank you so much, but it is really difficult for me not to worry. I will do my best.
you really will
but once you get through the evaluation and treatment you will realize you will be fine
I wish you the best
thank you, XXXXX XXXXX
