I was diagnosed with HPV (moderate displasia) back in 1996.
I had the LEEP done.
For the following 2 years I went twice a year with all normal Paps.
Since then, I go yearly with normal paps.
I'm afraid of the future. What are the odds of it coming back? I am also nervous cause they say a Pap test is not always 100% accurate. Should I be taking another test just to make sure?
I know they say your immune system is strong and can withstand the virus but for how long? Forever? When I get older and my immune system goes down will it come back with persistenly?
Or, am I as good as anybody who doesn't have HPV? Also, I'm on the pill....I've read this is bad? I'm just so confused! I hear too many different things? I don't know what to believe?
I heard I'm 4 times more at risk to develop cervical cancer? It doesn't make sense?
Any info. would be greatly appreciated. I just feel like I can never be free of worrying!
