positive high risk hpv and normal PAP what should i do?

Two years ago I got tested for HPV and tested negative, so I had the HPV Vaccine. The following year I tested positive for High Risk HPV with a normal PAP, 6 months later I had another exam and this time it was negative for HPV. 6 months later I had another test and it again tested positive for high risk HPV and the PAP was normal. I was given two options, either wait another 6 months and get tested again or have a Colposcopy now. What should I do?

A pap is only a screening tool. The colposcopy can actually diagnose and treat (in some instances). I suggest you go with the colpo.
