Test came back that said HPV positive genotype 18 & 45 which it says is high risk!! Does anyone know what this means I can't wait till next Thursday for a colposcopy I had surgery 3.5 years ago to get rid of the HPV and I been fine until now been with my husband 12.5 years.
Hiya, it means that you are at a higher risk of developing cervical cancer. They will send you for another colposcopy to determine which route to take next. Sometimes HPV can lie dormant in your body and then something triggers it off again. I have had HPV too but it was a low risk one, this affected my smear test and it was abnormal but fortunately it didn't have any detrimental effects on my body
