My obgyn told me I have HPV but I never took an HPV test. I only had a Pap smear and it came back "abnormal." Is it true I have HPV?

I was just diagnosed with HPV 53 having a abnormal pap smear. What information can you give me about this particular type. How common is it?
Had abnormal pap smear and then a colposcopy. Went back a year later and no abnormal cells present. Does this mean I have HPV?
You had HPV now gone: Abnormal cells of the cervix always means HPV; you can be sure you had HPV at the time of your abnormal pap and colposcopy. With your pap smear now normal, it is likely that the underlying HPV infection also has cleared up. Confirm with the doctor who treated you. Also ask her about getting vaccinated to reduce the risk of future infections with high-risk and wart-causing HPV strains. Good luck! ...Read more
5 months ago my pap came back abnormal with high risk HPV now she said my pap smear came back normal does that mean its gone? Or hasn't gotten worse?
It would appear to me that you are confusing two different results on pap smears.
First, the main reason for a pap smear is to examine the cells to see if any of them have changed to predict a risk of cancer.
Second, the cells are studied for high risk hpv dna to see if there is any risk of future changes that would predict cancer. ...Read more

I had an abnormal pap smear and i don't have HPV so should I be concerned? I'm only 22 and the doctor said i'll need another one in 6 months.
Yes: You should be concerned enough to follow through with the recommended recheck. You should not be worried, because even if something develops that needs to be treated, it will be found and treated long before it can become a major problem. A little inconvenience now will preclude a big problem later. The women who do have the big issues (cervical cancer) are those who do not follow up as needed. ...Read more

The Pap intends: To looks at cervical cells, but can also collect endometrial lining cells. I'd not contradict your doctor, and the pace of re-exam is fine. Next step is a visit to gyn oncologist for "colposcopy" and biopsy, or a D&C to look at the endometrium. You do not mention bleeding: reg/irreg, heavy light, painful intercourse. Pose these to your doc. ...Read more
