Possible reasons for abnormal pap lsil, no hpv? Could yeast infection be the cause?

Low risk viral type: Most commercially available hpv dna tests diagnose 12 or 13 strains of 'high risk' hpv. These are strains most likely to cause cancer. It is possible to have lsil (hpv changes) in a pap where abnormal cells are present but the viral strain causing the warty changes is not one of the 12 or 13 types in the test kit being used. Low risk viral types (6 ; 11) cause warts but have negative dna tests. ...Read more

Pap showed ascus. This was a pap done right after i took diflucan (fluconazole) and finished Monistat regimen for a bad yeast infection, is it HPV or benign?

If hpv is positive with ascus, you should undergo a painless procedure called colposcopy. It allows a closer look at the cervix and may localize the source of the inflammatory cells (ascus). ...Read more

I am 19 and sexually active for 2 years. When should I get a pap test? I have persistent yeast infection and late periods, can it be caused by HPV's?

Now: In the US, the usual pattern starts with first sexual activity or by age 21. HPV strains differ in their effect on your system. The pap smear is one way to monitor the effect of related strains. The genital wart strains would produce visible warts on most infected persons. HPV would not be a common cause of cycle changes or yeast infections. ...Read more
