"had a pap smear in conjunction with an HPV test. Lab returned pap test negative for malignancy. Does result include HPV results?

No.: The "negative for malignancy" refers to the pap. The high-risk hpv test in conjunction with is would be reported as positive or negative. Check with your doctor's office to get that result. The good news for you is that with your normal pap results if your hpv test is negative you can safely extend pap smear screening to up to 5 years. Annual exams are still advised. ...Read more

If I test negative for HPVdoes this mean I do not have hpv? Had abnormal cells and had a 6month check which said negative for both. Do I have hpv?

If I test negative for HPVdoes this mean I do not have hpv? Had abnormal cells and had a 6month check which said negative for both. Do I have hpv?

No: No you don't.but go check with doctor for abnormal cells, Most of the time, minor changes go back to normal on their own. But more serious changes can turn into cancer if they are not removed. The more serious changes are often called “precancer” because they are not yet cancer, but they can turn into cancer over time. It is important to make sure these changes do not get worse. ...Read more

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. Variability in sampling: if the first test collected cells from a warty / infected area and the second test did not sample the warty area, the tests could both be "correct". Tests are only as good as samples. 2. Patient's immune response may have also have cleared the infection. ...Read more

My wife went to go get an HPV test because I can't but she came back with negative results saying she doesn't have it. Does that mean I don't have it?

My wife went to go get an HPV test because I can't but she came back with negative results saying she doesn't have it. Does that mean I don't have it?

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

PAP and a HPV test together what is the differents if my HPV is Negative waiting on the Dr to read my pap will my Pap be Negative also.. Nerveous?

HPV negative is good: The HPV can be very helpful. If the HPV is negative the Pap is also likely to be negative or "atypical" at worst, and nothing further need be done. There is ongoing discussion about using HPV for screening and skipping the pap, although that is not standard of care at this time. ...Read more

Always normal pap. No HPV test tho. Been with same partner for 14 years. Most likely would I be negative for HR HPV anyways? Even with past partners?

HPV test: By age 30, 80 % of American women will have been exposed to the HPV. Most women's immune system renders the virus harmless within a two year time period. The few women in whom this does not happen, are at high risk to develop abnormal pap smears and cervical cancer down the road. Women over the age of 30 should get tested for HPV. ...Read more

If you have a regular pap test that comes back negative, can you still have hpv?

If you have a regular pap test that comes back negative, can you still have hpv?

Testing for HPV: Yes, a normal pap does not mean that you do not have hpv. Ideally all pap smears would test the cervical sample for all abnormalities including infections and viruses. Most pap smear analysis is screened only for "high grade" hpv types. A negative pap might have a low-risk hpv infection or the sample might have not been sufficient.

Can a nurse take wrong pap smear? I got negative both from HPV test and pap smear but is there any chance the beginner nurse didn't take it correctly?

Can a nurse take wrong pap smear? I got negative both from HPV test and pap smear but is there any chance the beginner nurse didn't take it correctly?

Yes and no: There are some safeguards in the procedure. A pap smear should never be reported out unless the smear is first an adequate specimen ( has the right kind of cervical cells on the slide) as judged by the person reviewing the slide.If adequate, and no abnormal cells are seen, it would be reported as negative.Can errors be made ?, yes. ...Read more
