Re: still HPV+ after LEEP- why?? will it ever clear?

The LEEP doesnt get rid of the HPV, only the dysplasia that is present at the time. Your immune system has to actually fight the HPV off. I've been dealing with this since 2007 myself, high risk HPV and all my colpos always came back as inflammation or cin1, until earlier this year it came back as cin2, and then high grade dysplasia in all three biopsies in november. i have to have the laser ablation done january 3rd and i am absolutely terrified. this definately doesnt mean that you will get cancer. Just make sure you always have your checkups when you're supposed to.
