No, unless HPV is: Treated & eradicated. Certain strains of hpv are closely linked with cervical cancer. As long as the hpv is present, cervicitis may continue, dysplasia may develop, & cervical cancer may result. See gyn for treatment options. Good luck. Partner(s) also need to be checked & treated for hpv.
