Hello,

Welcome and thank you for your question. I am Dr.Mazumdar and I hope I'm able to help you with your medical problem today.

If you have a negative HPV test with a normal pap smear, you should have the tests every 3 years.

I hope this helps.

Csn you have abnormal cells but a negative HPV?
Yes, you can.

About 95% of all cases of cervical dysplasia occurs due to HPV infection but in about 5% of cases, HPV may be negative.
