Abnormal Pap: Management algorithms for abnormal paps depend upon your age, high risk hpv being positive or negative, and the reading of the pap (ascus, hsil, lsil, etc.). Once the pap result has returned, the decision can be made on the next best step for monitoring and management.

Pap: If there is no moderate or severe dysplasia, the most reasonable approach would be to repeat the pap again in about six months.

No worries but: You'll do well to have this followed up. The chances of this leading to fatal disease if properly followed up are very low, but don't let it slide.
