HOPE with HPV

I've read a lot of posts about those who have become depressed after hearing they have HPV or LSIL/HSIL. There is hope though... 6 months ago I was diagnosed with LSIL and just recently went back to get a pap test done. The results came back negative!! You can fight the virus! All is not lost! I too was really unhappy when I found out I had HPV but then learned that your immune system can fight it off. Most likely if you don't have strains 16 & 18 you won't develop cervical cancer. Most people who do get cervical cancer get it because they went in and from the start found out they had HSIL. There are surgical procedures you can get to get rid of the HSIL as well and if you get pap tests every 6 months you will be on the safe side. I just figure I can't live my life scared of something I can't control you know. The one thing that helped me get rid of it was taking vitamins (one a day multi vitamin, high potency Vitamin C, Beta Carotene, CoQ10, green tea with antioxidants things like that), getting good sleep, and eating a little more fruits/vegetables. Best of luck to those out there with HPV.
