Never thought I'd be here, but here goes.
I'm a 32 year old mother of two and have been married for ten years. This week I got an urgent call to colposcopy following a severe result, which was borderline last year. I was also told I had HPV.
Im awaiting biopsy results, but I'm scheduled to have the cells removed in a couple of weeks regardless of the result.
My question is, do people normally clear the hpv virus at my age, or will I have it forever? I'm scared that if I have chronic hpv, that I'll enevitably get cervical cancer, regardless of going for regular smears.
I know each case is unique, I just wanted to know the norm. I'm obviously a bit, no, a lot scared! Thank you, x
