Related: It is likely that your hpv16 infection is driving your cervical intraepithelial neoplasia. It's not helpful to worry about how you met the virus and it is prone to hang on through your lifetime. You need to comply very carefully with your physician so that you will get through this, for your sake and the sake of those who care about you.

Chronic cervicitis: Is very common, has nothing to do with monogamy the CIN 2 and the hpv 16 is the worrisome issue so hopefully that is gone and will not recur, in your case the cervicitis is also gone and should be a non isssue.

Separate: "cervicitis" diagnosed only upon microscopic exam is usually a normal state. It was named long ago when it was thought to be abnormal. Nowadays, we know that most women have these changes. But for some silly reason, we have not changed the wording of the condition to signify that it is a type of normal. It is not related to hpv.
