HPV 18 positive but vaccinated 10 years ago- normal smear

I had the vaccine at 23 but have tested positive for HPV 18. I am very worried because this means I have had it for at least ten years. Have any women had this happen, had a normal smear, gotten further testing then they've found something?


this hasnt happened to me but thats crazy i thought the vaccine was to protect from that strain?

have they give you any advice?
