had my 6 month colposcopy today, to see if any changes had occurred. The consultant said she thought it was much better than last time, to the extent that I have a 'perfect cervix'. However she opened up the canal and said she could still see HPV inside. She therefore said she still classes it as low grade not moderate as the referral smear said 6 months ago. So she took anther smear and said we'l wait to see the results of that before planning next steps.
My punch biopsy results from previous (I found out today specific details but was too anxious to think at the time) just showed viral changes..
so all in all a positive outcome. I am wondering however, if HPV causes the abnormal smear and 'moderate' changes, not necessarily CIN ? Is it possible I just have a flare up of HPV (due to a Lapse in immunity last summer)?
Also, has anyone ever had HPV in the canal? It amazes me how they are able to see all of this.. but I always think of the questions after!
thanks in advance
