Just received a call from the doctor's office saying that my pap came back normal but I tested positive for high risk HPV. They said I need to wait for a referral and be seen by an OB/GYN.
Ok, back about 13 years ago, I had an abnormal pap with high risk HPV and precancerous cells. I had them removed via cryotherapy.
I've never tested positive for HPV since then. Now my question is this, since it clears up on its own usually, did I get re-infected with it or does it lay dormant and come back? I'm a little confused on this part.
Why do I need to see an OB/GYN if my pap is normal?
Hi all, Confirmed last night that I have HSV1 genital. Have been on Valtrex since Tuesday night. Very mild ob, one visible bump, no itching, no burning, just pain during sex. Which is why I ended up at the doctor. Had a tear and became infected orally. However there is pain on the inside the vagina, left side to be exact. Could this be a bump inside as well? This is the only pain I have and am curious to know when will the pain go away?
