Still worried

Hi ladies 

Im writing with a quick question which I'm hoping someone can answer. Had my follow up smear following LLETZ last month. Unfortunately I still have HPV but normal cells. Colposcopy has discharged me now back to 3 yearly smears . Thing is I'm just worried that this is too long a wait and that the HPV will do it's damage in the meantime, and I'll be back where I started. I should be happy, and I am, but it's still there in my mind . Has anyone else been sent back to 3 year recalls despite still having  the virus ? 

Thanks in advance x

If you have persistent infection I am very surprised they are suggesting leaving you 3 years. There is an 'ask the expert' section of this website. Perhaps use that and see what they say? 

Thank you for your advice. I will do that x
