HPV at home test result - extreme anxiety

Hi everyone, thanks for reading this.

I’m a Canadian, took an at home HPV test thinking absolutely nothing of it (it was advertised on the news and I’ve always been curious). I have been with my hubby for 7 years and we have a beautiful 2 year old.

Low and behold it came back positive for HPV 16, and I have been crying ever since. I can’t help but think of the worst for myself and my hubby. I feel like this is a death sentence not only for me but for my poor hubby whose one of the best people.

My family doc sent me to a gyne because he wasn’t sure how to approach this being that our guidelines still test for abnormal changes then HPV if needed… I have to wait until Nov to see her. I’m so upset and can’t help from spiraling thinking we’re both going to die young and leave our child alone. Please help.
