Unprotected sex after hpv + smear

Hello all,

I’ve had two positive smears and a further colposcopy on my second which showed mild changes but no CIN.

I am now beside myself with worry as I have been having unprotected sex with my partner for a year. I feel like this will definitely cause my upcoming smear to be hpv positive once again. I feel very guilty and feel like I’ve only got myself to blame.

I also have a tiny pimple near my genital area, which does not look like a wart but I’ve also been worried that it could be. I feel like I can’t go about my day without thinking about this smear test.

So I wanted to know,

Does unprotected sex mean my cervix can develop beyond no CIN?
Can warts cause my smear test to be hpv positive?
Can sex before a smear impact the results?

This has got me so stressed, I do not want to be intimate with my partner. He’s already showing frustration and I’ve not told him what I’m stressed about. It’s not a conversation I want to have.

Please help x
