HPV 18/Normal Pap result? Next steps?

Hello everyone,

I have been testing positive for high risk hpv for several years now and was even treated with cyrotherapy for cervical dysplasia 5 years ago.

Recently I was diagnosed with high risk hpv type 18 however my pap came back as normal. The doctor simply advised I have a repeat pap in 4 months.

Those of you who has similar diagnoses what was done for you? I feel as though I should have further testing done such as a colposcopy. I have been stressing and losing sleep over this diagnosis and it's breaking my heart more isn't being done. Any experiences or information shared would be appreciated.

Any updates ?
