Re: HPV and abnormal cells
For the biopsy, it is often necessary to observe cells at many different levels. The virus infects the cells that it wants to, and may have spared the external cervical cells.
Hyperplasia is the rapid reproduction of cells, which results in enlargement of the tissue. It is quite normal for virally infected tissue to reproduce rapidly. From what I have read, most people do not progress into the dysplasia stage, which is precancerous. If they do, the tissue is immediately excised, and that tends to take care of it. The colposcopy procedure likely removed much of the hyperplastic tissue. Your doctor's decision to carry out the colposcopy was an aggressive move, as not all doctors will opt to remove tissue that is currently harmless. I definitely argue that it was the right one.
According to the CDC, about 90% of people will clear HPV with their own immune system in about 2 years. Something of 60% by the first year. If anything, patience and a good diet will get you through it. Daily multivitamin and folic acid for sure. I swear by the concotion of vitamin A and D supplements and l-lysene tabs as well.
