Why would I have one HPV test be positive, and the next negative?

Why would I have one HPV test be positive, and the next negative?

Couple of ways...: Possible for an hpv test to be positive in a patient with a later test being negative. A couple of explanations: 1.

It is important to make sure these changes do not get worse. ...Read more

Maybe: HPV has both active and inactive phases. You could have acquired HPV at some point in the past, and no longer actively shed virus to the point she gets infected. The only way to know if you were ever infected is to test you. ...Read more
