hi, I'm due my smear on Friday, this will be my third yearly smear as it said I have hpv and they needed to check it annually , but I could clear it etc. my question is if it says this time which will be third year in a row, that I have hpv still will I get looked at, I don't want to get another letter saying it will be checked again. Has anyone else had this happen? Thanks
I'm not 100% sure but I did read somewhere that after 3 positive tests they'll refer you for colposcopy (I can't remember if it was on the NHS website or not)!
Hope you get a good results. X
Hi, I would probably ask them to refer you for a colposcopy if your still HPV positive. I had private smear carried out and although it was negative as I tested positive for HPV I was sent for a colp. It can also depend on the strain of HPV you have, I have a High Risk strain so I think thats why I was sent for further tests.
Hope all goes well for you.
