Re: HPV? Genital Warts
genital warts and mild dysplasia are both a result of hpv, however they are from two different strains of hpv. the dysplasia is from high-risk hpv with can cause cervical cancer, and genital warts are from low-risk hpv. in your case, it sounds like you have both high-risk and low-risk. if your dr. said that you have GW and prescribed aldera, then you have low-risk hpv. if your doc said you have mild dysplasia which they conclude from an abnormal pap smear, then you CAN have high-risk hpv, but doesnt mean you do for sure. mild dysplasia can appear on its own, but most of the time, high-risk hpv is to blame... ask your gyno to do a high-risk hpv test to make sure if you are concerned.
