What causes white patches on cervix? Today dr saw inflamation+white patches, I should do colposcopy.10 month ago pop test normal+inflam severe. Worrid : (
It's possible sometimes women have a low level infection in the uterus or cervix. Often this isn't an std, but rather a local chronic infection. Sometimes it's not even an infection, but an irritation or allergy. It's almost never cancer, so I wouldn't worry. Sometimes a simple course of antibiotics cures. Here's a website:

If my result from colposcopy says no serious abnormalities. Do that mean there are some? And I have HPV?
Sounds normal: HPV sometimes causes anal cancer, but not cancers higher in the rectum or colon. Colonoscopy checks only for non-HPV cancers of the rectum or colon. A negative results is very reliable evidence you have no such problem, and also no polyps that could lead to later colon cancer. If you have further concerns, discuss them with the doctor who did your colonoscopy. ...Read more

Pap result: mild inflam. Background, superficial & intermed. Squamous cells w/ benign endocervical cells; history of 2 irreg. Paps. Colposcopy needed?
No: If read accurately, your Pap smear indicates an inflammatory or infectious process - not a premalignant one. Colposcopy is not indicated now but you need to be checked to see what is causing the inflammation...clear the inflammation...repeat the pap...and only then have a colposcopy if the Pap smear shows premalignant cells. You could also be tested for high-risk HPV. ...Read more
I recently had a colposcopy due to a pap that showed hpv, with a cancer free result. I am in my 50's and wonder if getting an off-label gardasil vaccine is a good idea or a waste of money?
Good thinking yet no: Data from human trials. Vaccines work by triggering immune system responses to foreign chemical structures on surface of virus/bacteria, ones not encountered previously. Little data exists on repeated challenging with related structures when person has already had clinically apparent versions of the disease. Larger issue=complexity of immune system (brain control 24/7) responses poorly understood. ...Read more

Tested positive for HPV twice in 6 months but always had a normal pap. Had colposcopy with biopsy, waiting on results. Is a normal pap a good sign?
Yes, but not perfect: A normal PAP suggests that you have no evidence of cervical dysplasia (precancerous cells). A positive HPV test indicates that you have active virus that can cause dysplasia, which can lead to cervical cancer years later. Women over 30 who have normal PAP, but persistently +HPV (two years), needs Colposcopy to make sure dysplasia was not missed on PAP. See ASCCP Guidelines. Take Care! ...Read more

Will unprotected sex 14 hours before Pap smear /possible colposcopy affect my results? Should I tell the specialist tomorrow?
Can you tell me what the significance is of spindle cells being found in a cervical smear test? I have had colposcopy and biopsy, awaiting results.
If the final interpretation is negative for malignant cells, you are ok!
as highlighted in one of the replies 'spindle' cells just reflect the shape of cells, which may be benign or malignant (and may be epithelial or stromal from deeper tissue). If malignant, usually it is keratinizing squamous cell carcinoma with 'fiber' cells. Other malignant causes are very rare (e.g. Sarcomas, melanoma, mmt). ...Read more

Unrelated.: Follow the results of your colposcopy. Laser hair removal has had nothing to do with the cause or results of colposcopy. The laser energy used for hair removal does not penetrate more than a millimeter or two within the skin, and is not ionizing radiation anyway (it is infrared, causing a thermal--heat--response that destroys the hair follicle). These are totally unrelated. ...Read more

I had an abnormal pap smear. Would an undetected pregnancy cause it? I have to have a colposcopy done and I nervous about the result.
Abnormal pap with HPV after never having an abnormal result and 10 years with my spouse. Should we wait to have sex until after my colposcopy?
Continued sex is OK: HPV sometimes lies dormant and then causes pap smear abnormalities years later. This is much more likely than a new infection. Since you have been having regular sex with your husband, he has already been repeatedly exposed and undoubtedly infected, and likely his immune system has already eliminated the virus. There is no need to stop having sex, either for your health or his. ...Read more
