I’m scared of my results


Hi everyone, I'm a 20 year old female and I got a tested positive for 7 HPV types (39, 42, 51, 53, 56, 66, and 68) three months ago. I'm currently living in China because of work reasons so I've went to see specialists here and they have provided me with these medications that helps strengthens my immunity and injection cream of sorts...?  I've been using the treatment for 3 months now (medication twice a day and cream every other day but not using it during period). The doctor said that I should take the medication for at least three months (which I have already) and I'm debating whether or not I should continue. It's obvious that it will be the best to continue but I have two main reasons why I'm debating:

1. My mom has no idea I have HPV and I'm living at her house so it's kind of hard to keep a mountain of medications from her.

2. It's really expensive, roughly aroun $1600 Canadian Dollars

I'm just really scared....because of the 7 hpv types that I have 6 of them are considered high-risk types. I really don't know what to do....I'm terrified of the thought that I might get cancer but also if I keep getting the medication not only is it going to be tough on my wallet but I'm just scared to even think of how my mom will think and treat me if she finds out. 

I know this is really long but I just really don't know who else I can tell this to..

I'm sorry that you feel like you can't open up to your mother about your HPV diagnosis and I am sure that you have your own reasoning behind that but it's hard for me to imagine that your mom would rather you die of cancer than to be confronted with the fact that you have been sexually active. 80% of people have HPV. It is unfortunate that you are not one of the vast majority of people that can clear the virus without intervention but that doesn't mean you have anything to be ashamed about or that you should risk your life. You should take the fact that you have treatment options at all very seriously. I actually would love to know what kind of medicines you have been prescribed. I have never actually heard of any treatment options for HPV and if I had the opportunity to treat the virus myself I would have done that to prevent the 2 LEEP procedures I have already had and my own impending hysterectomy. The side affects of HPV and it's treatments are so much higher than shame or even monetary strain. If you truly cannot afford it then I understand completely but if you can and you choose not to take it to avoid an awkward conversation I think you are making the wrong choice.
