Re: ASC-US Pap 1 year after LEEP - HPV not detected
Hi! I can't really offer you any answers, but I'm kind of in the same boat and understand how you feel. Last year I was DX with AIS and had a Leep Cone Biopsy in September. My 3 & 6 month paps were fine, but my 9 month has come back ASCUS HPV negative. The nurse who called to give me the results said that since HPV was not detected, that I would just come back in 3 months for my 1 year pap. She made it sound as if my doctor was happy that there was no HPV and confident that no immediate action needed to be taken.
With my history, of course I'm over cautious and worried about this too. I understand that this is the normal course of action for a first time diagnosis of ASCUS, but is it the same for someone who has already had Leep? Plus, my original abnormality was glandular cells, not squamous so I'd like to know if these new pap results are related to my previous condition or are they just a coincidence? Like you, I was just a few days off my period and I believe that there may have been intercourse within a day or 2 of my pap.
