Hello, I am Dr Owen, I am a Board Certified Ob/Gyn Medical Doctor and I want to help you.
What did the results say?
well this is my 3 month re pap
lsil it was surepath with genotype 16,18
what was the results
it says detected hpv dna (high risk)
does this mean I have hpv 16 and 18?
I am freaking out here please help
did the result give you any results of the HPV besides of high risk
I had an abnormal about 20 years and had cyro surgery never had further problems until I had a new partner 9 months ago
lsil were the results
Well high risk could mean you possibly have HPV 16, 18, 31, 33, 35 - hard to say -unless they were specific on the HPV results
And LSIL - is Low grade PAP
so what you need is a follow with a Colposcopy to look at the cervix
it doesn't mean specifivly 16 and 18? it was a sureoath pap with genotype 16 and 18
well unless they were specific - you can't tell
had a colopo almost three months ago and it was all negative
the result needs to be specific - and if Just high risk then it could be any of the high risk HPV
do you smoke?
never have but, I thought this pap would be clear since the colpol was negative this was my follow up pap
Well then your body will cure itself for this
so you do not need to worry
even if I were to have 16 or 18 I can get better?
I am terrified that I will get oral or anal cancer
yes your body will cure itself
so do not be terrified
what about the fact that this is a new exposure isn't that worse for my body? Can people get this multiple times?
do not worry
your body will cure itself
is it possible to have a clear biopsy and continue to get lsil paps?
i am starting to think the biopsy was not accurate. What about my age I am 35.
yes it is very possible
so please do not worry
and a LSIL PAP is fine -
this is NOT a cancer
and with a normal coloposcopy
you should be absolutely fine
I had the copolscopy 3 months ago . What should I do now?
Have the doctor repeat the colpol
you just need a repeat pap / colposcopy
my pap was this week but, colpol 3 months ago
I usually repeat them at the 6 month
ao you think I should wait another 3 months?
yes you can wait
there is no rush
so I can remain calm even if this were hpv 16 18?
yes remain calm
do NOT worry
since you do NOT smoke
your body will take care of itself
I wish you well
how about the other cancers? How real of a threat are they?
do not worry about them
not worth worrying about
sorry doc I am very upset
I brought this on myself
again, NOT worth worrying since you do NOT smoke
can I ask you one last thing?
do not worry
I had all std testing 6 months after my exposure with this guy. my last hiv test was at 6 months is that accurate?
yes VERY accurate
are you fimilar wit the surepath pap?
you really are causing yourself a lot of anxiety over nothing
I have said you do not need to worry
I've been an ob/gyn for close to 20 years
and if you truly had something that was concerning I would have said something about it
does that specify 16 and 18 at the bottom of the report just says detected and an endnote stating all the high risk hpv types
But honestly this is NOT concerning and do NOT worry
AGAIN - Unless the pathologist specifically SPELLED out which HPV you had - you can not tell
ok. I understand.
and usually if a doctor does not ask for a specific result - you get a GENERAL result like you did
and with a LSIL pap - we really do get concerned with the HPV result
I am sorry its just I thought this re pap would be normal
bot***** *****ne - you have HPV - that is NOT really a concern because YOU DO NOT SMOKE - okay
It can take 6 months to a couple of years for a pap to resort back to normal
so do NOT worry
I am saying the same thing over and over -
and if you are googling the internet - I would advise you to STOP
ok. You understand with all the media attention . oral and anal cancers . Its scary.
it is causing too much anxiety
STOP STOP and STOP
and those with those cancers - THEY SMOKE
every one of them
HPV + smokeing = cancer
HPV and NOT smoking - NO cancer
and keep it simple
ok. I will continue to follow up with my doctor.
I wish you the best
