    Unhappy HPV positive and terrified :( help

    So, I got a pap smear done last week and so far have gotten about 3 different calls from my gyno telling me that everything is fine. Then today I get another call from the office telling me that I have tested positive for HPV. I am so scared. I'm 24 in college, just got engaged about 8 months ago to my best friend and love of my life. I have had other sexual partners before him, but was always safe and I have always gotten a pap smear and blood testing every year. Which always come back as absolutely fine. Until today.
    The nurse reassured me that everything was going to be okay and that it was so common that I shouldn't even worry about it but I AM WORRYING. I'm depressed and crying. I haven't told my fiancÚ yet because i'm scared of what he'll say. I know he loves me but were both young and he's still pretty immature. I'm terrified to tell him, and even that's an understatement. I have an appointment to get a colposcopy in about 2 weeks to find out what I will have to do and just how bad or not bad this HPV is. I'm honestly freaking out. I also have high anxiety which is completely making this worse. I really need to talk to someone who might've had or is going through a similar experience. Please.

    Hi. I understand and have been there. Do you know what strains you have?

    I'm currently going through the same situation. I was diagnosed with high risk hpv. I have my follow up appointment next week.

    I had a cone biopsy 24 years ago they think that was hpv. I tested positive 5 years ago again. It came back to vulvar I am scheduled for surgery on the 1 st. Stay out in front of it get all check ups on time. Sorry you are going through this. I hope all works out good. The colposcopy is easy no pain.
