Unhappy condyloma...

I just went in for a colpo and biopsy for the umpteenth time. I have had CIN1 for 4 years now. I have changed docs a few times because I move around so much and the docs have all taken the wait and see approach. I am okay with that since I read that after a leep it can recur so it seems kinda pointless to treat it if it isn't getting any worse? Correct me if I am wrong.

So anyway, the last checkup I had revealed I also had a polyp/condyloma on my cervix. I realize that is another way to say genital warts but should I worry? I didnt have it before so this is a new development. Does that mean I have another type of HPV that is different from the one causing the dysplasia or are they one in the same? Or does it mean the dysplasia is progressing to cancer and that is why a wart has formed? Do warts become canncer? I had a child 3 months ago so did the pregnancy hormones perhaps cause the condyloma to act up?

Also, I read that HPV is associated with vulvar pain and I have noticed that since pregnancy, I am having painful paps, which were never a problem for me before. Does anyone here deal with vulvar pain that they think is linked to HPV?

Thanks for reading... Man do I get depressed sometimes with this problem! I used to think my immune system could take care of it but after 4 years, I am giving up on that prospect.

Re: condyloma...

If it is not a flat wart (hpv-16 causes this) then it is probably lrhpv, responsible for condylomas (warts), but in no way responsible for cancers. So don't worry about that--it sucks to have it, and you'd much rather not, but it doesn't mean that your CIN1 is worse or getting worse.

You may actually only have the lrhpv type--lrhpv accounts for 25% of CIN1 (but never CIN2 or 3). Since you have stayed CIN1 awhile and never progressed, this is a distinct possibility. Ask to be typed for lr or hr hpv. I think the test is Digene hybrid capture. Good chance you'll come up positive for lr and negative for hr.

Finally, at "just" CIN1 and I'm assuming otherwise immunocompetent, you are a good candidate for naturopathic therapy. Have you looked into this? Check out the other posts on this board for more info (do a search).

Good luck!
