Re: Do Drs. test for HPV at the same time of your PAP?
Hi Dolores, I am going through the same thing you are right now. I had endometrial ablation 1 year ago because of an abnormal pap smear. In March of this year, my pap came back abnormal with atypical squamous cells. The nurse said it was nothing to worry about because my hpv came back negative. They want to see me in 3 months. It is scary because 7 years ago I had cervical cancer. From what I read, the atypical cells is nothing to worry about, just something to keep an eye on if your hpv is negative. If it were me, I would call the office and ask if they tested you for hpv. Maybe this is the reason your doctor wants to see you, to give you the hpv test when you get the copolscopy. The hpv can be active or inactive, so maybe that is why he is waiting. Good luck to you, I will keep you in my prayers.
