Consider yourself lucky- when I was diagnosed with CIN1 at age 16 in the 1980s (I'd only had one partner), they scared me to death by telling me it was cancer (my recollection, anyway), and rushed me into a biopsy, quickly followed by cryosurgery (where they freeze your cervix with a chemical).
This was standard treatment for low-grade CIN at the time.
To add insult to injury, they never told me how common this is (maybe they didn't know
, back then), and they implied that I would have it for the rest of my life and that, as a lifelong condition, it would require constant monitoring and repeated treatment, and even so it would no doubt turn into invasive cancer eventually.
I wasn't even a junior in high school, and I was about ready to slit my wrists.
Nobody I knew had ever had this or even knew what it was. Nobody I knew had ever heard of HPV. Seriously! Only 23 years ago!
I thought I had a very rare disease that would eventually kill me.
I felt alone, ashamed, and disgusting.
As a consequence of believing I had nothing to live for, I became promiscuous, dropped out of school (where I'd once been an honor student), and was pregnant with my first child within a year of being treated for CIN.
Okay, that's all the bad news.
The good news:
My CIN was completely cured (knowing what I know now, I strongly suspect it would've resolved anyway, even without the overly-aggressive treatment), and I never had another abnormal PAP... and it's been well over 20 years now.
I no longer have the HPV virus, either. I don't know when it went away... probably a year or two after I contracted it. I was never screened for HPV until I was 35, and have been every year since, and I am now negative for HPV.
My point is, I know "watching and waiting" sucks, but it beats what doctors were doing to young girls 20 years ago, which was rushing them into surgery (which sometimes compromised their future fertility) and making them feel like diseased pieces of crap, like their lives were over and they'd never be healthy again.
The condition you have is common, is not serious (at least not at this point), and will very, very likely resolve on its own without any treatment.
Your job right now is to try to forget about it and carry on with your life, and get screened every six months just to make sure it's not progressing (which would be unlikely, but not impossible).
In a couple of years, it will almost certainly be gone... and if it's not, your doctor can treat it with LEEP at that time.
Oh, and maybe start taking a good multivitamin to enhance your immune system. That way you'll be able to overcome the HPV virus even faster.
Best of luck.
