hi Bell, big hugs. I appreciate that this is very worrying for you, it is a big shock for all of us to be told that we are HPV positive. When we are not expecting this it is a big shock.
Honestly, do try to not worry, they have requested you to return in 1 year, because that gives your body a good chance to clear the HPV before abnormalities occur. So you don’t have to suffer treatment for abnormal cells that may never ever develop.
In all honesty the best thing that you can do is not worry, and eat healthy foods.Exercise and get enough sleep. Maybe take a look at your life and make some changes that you can stick with to be generally healthier.
I personally do not recommend a big diet change in one fell swoop, makes it much harder to stick with, look at your diet and see if there are improvements that you can make and stick with them.
Same with exercise, on days that are muggy and overcast don’t beat yourself up at not wanting to go out, or pay for a gym, make time in your routine to do some exercise in and around your home. Again, an exercise routine that you can stick with. You may well have a close friend or 2 that will want to join in with you just to be fitter.
Also, do go back in the year for another test, just to get that all clear, you can do it, do your best to stay positive.
I do appreciate how hard staying positive can be, but try and look on the test you have had as a positive, you are now aware that at the moment you are carrying the HPV virus, but, you have no abnormal cells and you are jolly well not going to get them.
Hope my ramblings help slightly, apologies for waffling
