Low Grade Pap Smar

Hello - I was diagnosed with HPV about 5 years ago. My paps were normal but HPV test was positive so my doctor made me come in every 6 months for a pap. In 2006, I received my first abnormal pap (Low Grade) which led to a colposcopy and biopsy. Which came back normal. Next pap 6 months later was normal also. Then the one after that was Low Grade again, which led to another colpo. and the biopsy from that was normal also. Next two paps to follow were both low grade, but she chose to keep an eye on my this time instead of another colpo. My next 6 month pap is coming up this Friday, I'm always on pins in needles afterwards because I just wish it would revert back to normal. I haven't had dysplasia thus far to treat, but I get confused because I automatically think Low Grade pap result means dysplasia. When in my case, that doesn't seem to be the reason. Anyone else ever go through this? Thanks

Hi nicksgirl.


I have a friend who has gone through this same sequence of events a few times.
