I went back for a repeat pap in early August. A week later it came back ASCUS and positive HPV
They immediately scheduled me for a repeat colposcoy and I was really bummed out because they weren't going to get me in until the end of Sept (and I wanted to TTC in mid Sept and I knew I wouldn't be able to confirm a pregnancy until after the beginning of October - so it would mean either not TTC or going ahead and risking cervical biopsy when I might have conceived the previous week.
Anyway, I asked to be put on a waiting list for canceled appointments and as luck would have it, I got in a few days later. She repeated the colposcopy and said that my cervix still looked really good, and did not in fact do a biopsy.. She got a good look at the endocervical canal, so didn't have to repeat the endocervical curettage.
She said we should cautiously look at the ASCUS as "most of the cell changes are back to normal, with just a little bit hanging around" and I repeat the pap in 6 months again. Hopefully I'll be in earlier than then anyway, since I'm hoping for a positive pregnancy test this month or soon after! She said there was no need to change those plans. I think she's pretty convinced now that I am far from being the type to go into denial and stop returning for follow-up, so she's content enough to just monitor this and see how it goes.
I'm optimistic, despite the setback with it being ASCUS when I was sure it would be clear. As I see it, it hasn't even been a year since my first positive HPV test, so that's well within the normal timeframe. If I'm not kicking it by this time next year, I'll be a little more concerned. And of course, throughout the whole time I'll be closely monitored.
I'm mostly happy I don't have to adjust my baby plans.
Good luck to you! The colposcopy was really nothing to me. That might have had to do with the fact that I didn't have a biopsy, but really, it was no bigger deal than a pap. Actually, it was more comfortable than a pap because I hate that pressing they do on the abdomen with the pap, and with the colposcopy that didn't happen.
