I received the results of HPV typing and I'm positive for LR57/71, HR 56, HR 66/68. Is there a cure? Does it go away?

I received the results of HPV typing and I'm positive for LR57/71, HR 56, HR 66/68. Is there a cure? Does it go away?

Follow doc's advice: Almost all HPV infections are cleared by the immune system, usually 1-2 yr. Viral DNA may persist with chance of later recurrence, but for practical purposes the infection is gone. More important than HPV itself is whether you have dysplasia (pre-cancer cells) of the cervix or other infected area. Even high-risk HPV rarely leads to actual cancer. Follow doc's advice about treatment and follow-up. ...Read more

I was recently told that I have HPV and that I had to get a biopsy and go to the drs every three months after that. Is that normal? And how do I know if I have low grade or high grade HPV? Would the results of my papsmear tell me?

Discuss w/ your doc: First, having HPV is normal: not desirable, but almost everyone gets it. Follow your doctor's advice for follow-up testing etc, and nothing bad will ever happen (or will be detected and treated before it's serious). Probably testing has been done to know whether high or low risk HPV; ask your doctor. All this should be discussed with your doc, who can help more than a distant forum doctor. ...Read more
