Re: pap result

Yes it is good news, but in my mind I cant stop hearing these words, you have high risk hpv that may lead to cervical cancer. Yes everything came back normal. But Im still not
feeling safe =( I think this hpv has struck me so hard i had mild depression. So yes good news i dont have to go back for a year. So does this mean my hpv is staying under control? Does it mean it is possible gone? What do all these tests mean? Can I relax again and just be who I was and enjoy my life again? Also I dont know if this is normal but does hpv cause any kind of discharge? Anything?????? Yes Im happy Yes I have a peace of mind. But I will always worry that the hpv can change my normal cells to abnormal. I want to be around for a long time.
Hpv can cause depression, anxiety and fear. It has with me. I have good days and bad days. This board lets me vent and has helped me so much with all the advice. Doesnt seem to be any clear answers on hpv. I want to know if it is life threatening. Thanks everyone ..

Re: pap result

I have another issue i need to address. Noone talks about smoking and hpv. Am I the only one on this board that smokes? Not for nothing but I know smoking is bad in general. But i enjoy having a cigerette with my morning coffee and at night after kids go to bed. I have about 5 a day. I have cut back tremedously. How come my dr didnt tell me to quit? How come she didnt address this issue? I am sure to get cervical cancer because I am high risk hpv and i smoke? Im so aggravated. I just want answers.

Re: pap result

Hi Tiggy44, I understand your frustration and confusion-----I feel the same way sometimes. Like you, I find it frustrating to not get clear answers to questions I have; the boards have been great and I have learned some, my doctor and nurse have told me some things but not much and websites seem to be vague at times (regarding vulva issues). I have had 2 areas of severe dysplasia on my vulva area, both times removed and pre-cancerous. Now I have been referred to a GYN Oncologist for further tests and evaluations. I was diagnosed last year and was a wreck (plus my husband was in Iraq for the year) but I am not going to let the diagnosis consume my life because I have too much to enjoy and live for. I do have my moments when I cry and I do wish this would just go away but it won't. All I can do is hope for the best! It's a shame the doc didn't tell you about smoking, that is one of the first questions I was asked (I am not a smoker). You should try to stop smoking, from the CDC it states smoking will help HPV persistance. Plus, you want to have a stong immune system, of course smoking has negative affects and also it is important to keep stress levels low (I know easier said than done). A healthy diet, excercise, and multi vitamins (with folic acid) were recommended to me. Nobody but your doctor can tell you why she did not speak to you about smoking. I hope you can learn to enjoy your life again and focus less on having HPV-----try and focus on the positive things, I do. Take good care of yourself and keep us posted! Best wishes to you and your family!
