Not usually: Usually the test only is positive in the more dangerous subtypes of virus. But to know exactly what virus it is and how extensive the dysplasia is requires further evaluation such as biopsy. The risk of dying or complications resulting in hysterectomy are very very low with appropriate follow-up..so please follow up promptly with your healthcare provider.

No: The best screening tool for now is your Pap smear which you should do annually for the next 3 years and if it keeps coming negative you can go for once every 3 yrs. Many women under 30 are positive for HPV but they become negative later.
