Re: Atypical cells and previous severe dysplasia
I to was diagnosed with HPV last year and had severe dysplasia on my vulva area---had to be removed. My 6 month check-up went fine and then at my year exam they found another area (again the vulva area) that had to be removed. Each time sent in for biopsy and pre-cancerous. From my understanding (and I could be wrong) they cannot determine whether or not symptoms/problems will continue to happen or disappear altogether. It is important to try and keep your immune system strong and healthy to fight any infection or disease (excercise, diet, no smoking, keep stress levels low, etc.) Also, I recently read that atypical cells (ASC-US or LSIL) are mild cytologic abnormalities caused by HPV, and they may spontaneously regress. Good luck!
