Hi. To make a long story short, my high risk obgyn just told me my pap came back + for HPV. She said she didn't want to tell me right off the bat bc there were new findings on it and she wanted all the right info before she talked to me. She said not to worry and we would do an other pap at 6 weeks post partum to see what those results are. I am 21w1d. My question is for my last pap right before I got pregnant with my now 2 year old came back fine. I have only been with my husband so I'm losing sleep over how I got HPV between this pregnancy and the last. I had such a large gap between paps bc I just forgot to go for a regular check up with have a preemie son. I was thinking of calling the old obgyn to check my records for make sure HPV was never an issue before. But she should have also told me about this at the time and not that "everything came back normal". What do you ladies think?
Correct, HPV can remain dormant for years before it's even detected. Best to be on top of it in the future though. 80% of all people will have HPV (whether they know it or not) in their lifetime. There are many different strands. Some bodies have the ability to "pass" this within two years on it's own. Others need to keep an eye on it, others may need small procedures.
