I've had persistent hpv 16 and three treatments (2 x LLetz, cone biopsy) to remove CIN3 since 2017. My gyne has said that in his 26 year career he has never seen the abnormal cells return so quickly in anyone and I’m wondering if anyone else on this forum has experienced this? During these 3 years of ongoing treatment I have had one child. After having my child three months ago I recently had a repeat hpv test to see if my body had cleared the infection and unfortunately it hasn’t. I feel quite disheartened as I read somewhere (I’ve done way too much googling!) that if your body hasn’t cleared it in 2 years it most likely will never clear it and I now feel that I am just waiting to be diagnosed with one of the various types of cancers hpv 16 is linked to. Does anyone have any experience of clearing a high risk hpv after 3 years or more? If so did you do anything to help your body along?
I’m considering having a radical trachelectomy (ideally like to have another child first) as I am dreading the day that the results come back as cancer rather than CIN3.
Any support from anyone going through a similar thing would be appreciated!
