Healthnut, I am looking for the same exact answers!
After having a colposcopy last month (ouch!
) I was diagnosed with HVP, the "invisible" kind that only shows up in women. I have to go to the doc again tomorrow to have a freezing procedure done on my cervix to remove the precancerous cells
Tomorrow I am going to ask my OBGYN the exact same questions that you posted and I will let you know tomorrow night what she says. I know we aren't the only ones who don't understand this HVP stuff either ... my boyfriend is more freaked out than I am! It's hard for him to comprehend that he could be carrying an invisible, undetected disease.
