Hello, this may be a long shot sense this forum was made over a year ago, but coming across these messages is exactly what I needed to not feel so alone, confused and discouraged. I was diagnosed with CIN1 and HPV in April 2021. ( The doctor never fully told me what type HPV I have nor am I even sure if mild dysplasia and HPV are the same thing. HELP!! ) Before reading this forum my doctor said on a " scale to 1-10… I am at like a 1 and it will go away on it’s own… but how?? I am trying to educate myself without reading too much online and freaking myself out. When the doctors tell us “it will go away on it’s own” I don’t understand if it “sheds” or disappears naturally if you are taking the correct precautions, vitms, etc. I am 23 years old and my first couple paps came but normal, but my last one did not. My mom never got me the HPV vaccine when I was younger, but my doctor did advise me to go and get it to help prevent further problems. I was REALLY REALLY down and hard on myself at first, an awful funk, but the days and anxiety is getting better but the waiting game for another pap sucks, but hoping I go back with the results of it being fully gone. BUT IS IT EVER FULLY GONE OR IS IT JUST NOT SHOWING IN OUR SYSTEMS ANYMORE?? ARE YOU MORE PRONE TO GETTING IT AGAIN?? Please help a female out… sending nothing but blessings and good health all the way from TEXAS!!
