Likely: About 80% of the women get HPV infection during college, if sexually active. The results are not worrisome, but you should get regular PAP smears, as advised by your doctor. You may visit this site for information on this topic: https://www.cdc.gov/std/hpv/stdfact-hpv.htm
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
