HPV 16

Hi ladies. I’m 34 living in the US. Long story short, I was diagnosed with HPV and CIN 2/3 back in 2012. I got a LEEP procedure soon after with clear margins.

Its been almost 12yrs since Ive had a positive test. I just got back my cytology report, it was NEGATIVE but I tested POSITIVE for HPV 16.

Im so scared. Im afraid to go through this again. It was so traumatizing the first time. I’m spiraling and I don’t know how to deal. I need support.

Which HPV strain did you have back then? Can that be a reinfection with a new strain? Do u have abnormal cells currently?
