Anyone with Hashi's and HPV?
By any chance- does anyone here have both Hashimoto's and is having gynecological problems with HPV?
I have Hashimoto's and also HPV. I am wondering if my body has not been able to get rid of the HPV because of the Hashimoto's. I have had abnormal pap tests- with a clear biopsy and now another abnormal pap with another biopsy scheduled. The Dr "sees" nothing- but the pap comes back questionable. Due to that- she takes a biopsy- and it comes back fine. I am on my second round of this!
I have read that those with auto-immune diseases such as HIV often have trouble getting rid of HPV. (Getting rid of is probably not the correct term- I mean to control it so that cervical cells do not change.) Since Hashimoto's is an auto immune disease- is it possible that is the reason I am having trouble with HPV?
