I've been tested for HPV with my pap smear annually for the past 3 yrs.This year my HPV test was positive. Does this mean I have always had HPV and just now showing up or did i just recently get hpv?

Not the same virus: There are many variants of the HPV virus. The virus you eliminated will not come back, but you are susceptible to other strains of HPV, like any body else. For 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. ...Read more

This is best discussed with your physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've never had a pap smear but I am 16 and have been sexually active for 3 years. does the pap smear check for more than the blood test?
Yes certainly: also would be a screen for several STD's (warts certainly, but other tests for GC and chlamydia could easily be also done). Mainly, it looks for cells that can become cancer. This has lowered cervical cancer 90% and made cervical cancer from about the number 1 cause of death in your age, to about gone. ...Read more

My husband and I have never had any other sexual partners, but my last pap smear showed hpv. Further testing showed hpv-16. How is this possible?
Stop worrying: I'm not satisfied that even the "bad" strains of hpv are always transmitted sexually. And this is not a helpful line of inquiry. You love one another, and have promised to be together for the rest of your lives. Don't let this be a cause of suspicion, and remain vigilant for the cancer risk to you both, and things will be good. I wish more people would save themselves for that one special person. ...Read more

Pose these to your doc. ...Read more
