Re: My 17 year old daughter just diagnosed with HPV
Is this her first pap? Has she had the vaccine?
The doctor might or might not refer her to a gyno. It depends on what type of HPV: low risk or high risk. It also depends on the severity of the pap results. If she is just positive for HPV, they may do a watch and recheck every 3, 4, or 6 months.
She doesn't necessarily need to go to a gyn (if it is a good pap and a positive high risk HPV results), unless you just want to go for peace of mind.
I hope that helps.
