high risk hpv with ascus.....
I'm 22 yrs old and i just was told that i have high risk hpv with ascus. I'm not totally sure what this means, i have been doing a lot of research but i still don't really understand. I know i high risk hpv is what causes most cervical cancer and that ascus means my cells were abnormal but what should i do about it? My doctor said to come back in 6 months for another pap but it's difficult waiting 6 months wondering if i have cervical cancer or not and knowing if i do it's growing in my body throughout this waiting period.
I guess what scares me the most is that i have always had problems with paps. I had my first pap when i was 16 and it came back abnormal, they told me to come back in 6 months for another one. However i had started taking depo during that time and ended up having my period for 5 months straight and they couldnt do the pap while i was on my period so we waited an extra 5 months while i was given numerous types of birthcontrol to try and make it stop. finally when i did go back in they did it again but the pap was basically incunclusive and they didnt have enough cells (so they were generous enough to give me m next one for free!) I then had another pap and they said i had more discharge then normal and treated me for some infections. After that i had my paps yearly like normal and everytime they said i had too much discharge and gave me treatment for an infections. And then know i find out i have high risk hpv with ascus, i just dont know if all these infections could have something to do with that and if it's possible that i have had this for 5 yrs.
I just once want to go in for a pap and hear that everything is totally normal and im fearing i never will but that doctors dont seem to be doing anything about it. They don't seem worried so does that mean i should'nt be?
I would appreciate any one that could help me understand what is going on with me.
