So here's my story, because I'm new here:
2004: LSIL on 2 paps in a row
2005: HSIL, colposcopy indicating CIN 3, 1 LEEP confirming CIN 3. Positive for HPV 16
2006: follow-up colp showing CIN 2/3, repeat LEEP, confirming CIN2/3. Positive for HPV 16.
2007 - 2014 clean paps, 2 beautiful kids.
2014: LSIL on pap, colposcopy showing CIN 2/3. BUT.....drumroll.... negative HPV.
Total hysterectomy advised and planned in the next few weeks.
So here's my question. How can I test negative for HPV but positive for CIN 2? I've had no new partners since the
original abnormal paps, and my partner has been faithful. I'm still breastfeeding so my hormones may be weird, if that
could be significant. I've read that false positive CIN diagnoses are way more common that false negative HPV tests.
That has me worried. I'm fine with a hysterectomy (we're done having kids) if there really is CIN 2, but I am wondering
if the HPV test was right and the CIN 2 finding was wrong.
Has anyone else tested positive for CIN 2 plus but tested negative for HPV?????
