How common is it for a 17 year old to get cervical cancer with genital warts and an iud? I have had the IUD for 4 years now. And, i just got rid of my genital warts. But, I do not get regular pap tests.

The : The fact that you have genital warts means you have been exposed to the hpv virus, there are 100's of types of hpv, some causing warts, and other types causing cervical cancer. The only way to tell if you have cervical changes from hpv is to have a pap smear. However, new guidelines from the american college of gynecologists (acog) recommend pap smears not be done until age 21. Acog states, " although the rate of hpv infection is high among sexually active adolescents, invasive cervical cancer is very rare in women under age 21. The immune system clears the hpv infection within one to two years among most adolescent women. Because the adolescent cervix is immature, there is a higher incidence of hpv-related precancerous lesions (called dysplasia). However, the large majority of cervical dysplasias in adolescents resolve on their own without treatment" you should still visit your doctor for their input, and other testing, mainly std when indicated. Even though you have an iud, you still need to protect yourself against std's, this can be done by using condoms with any sexual encounter, including oral, anal, and genital. Good luck. ...Read more
