Hi I haven’t posted for some time, but have come back after having continued to read other ladies posts and feeling for all those who are dealing with these issues…
I searched the forums for details about HPV but couldn’t find what I was looking for.
I’ve opened a letter today saying my smear test results are Normal…
This is the first time in a long time!! However, I’m confused as last time I had a smear it was positive for HPV and I had to go back for another Colposcopy… So does this ‘normal’ test result mean that the HPV isn’t active?? Or that the virus is gone?! Or is it nothing to do with HPV and just means I don’t have abnormal cell changes?
I’m presuming as I’ve had LLETZ in the past and last time tested positive for HPV they would have tested for it again this time?
Also on my results letter it says my next smear is due at the end of 2018… I was really shocked by this!!!
My understanding of it was that after having severe cell changes and treatment you’d be closely monitored for several years. It was only Summer 2014 that I had my LLETZ. Now with one normal test result I seem to not need to go back for 3 years!!!
Any info’ anyone has on either subject is much appreciated.
