My pap smear test results are neg, but also says CERVICITIS my obg, says i repeat test in 6mths,should i have a 2nd opinion?as i am trying to conceive

Yes

Pap_smear
There is no need to repeat a PAP smear unless it's abnormal. Cervicitis is treated with antibiotics and cervical infections can be evaluated for quickly without the need for waiting six months. First ask your doctor to explain the reasoning for their plan as they may provide informantion that would make it reasonable to wait. However if you are uncomfortable with the plan seek a second opinion.

Told I had abnormal pap and need to go back. Never did before \Was this a mild case of cervicitis or hpv?

Depends

Cervical_smear
Some abnormal paps (ASCUS) can be due to a lot of things (pregnancy, infection). Others are due to HPV. When you go back, ask your doctor if you were tested for HPV.

Why do you have to get a Pap cervical smear if your a virgin and are not sexually active?

There are other...

Cancer
...causes of cervical cancer, besides HPV. Both the American Cancer Society and the The American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists recommend that all women have an initial Pap smear by the age of 21, regardless of whether or not they've had sexual intercourse. How often you have them after that will depend on when you do become sexually active.

Pap test came back asc-us with some cervicitis cells found. Do i have hpv??

ASCUS

Pap_smear
Atypical Squamous Cells of Unknown Significance. Nope. That is not what ASCUS is. But, you should not have to wonder. There is the HPV Hybrid test with the pap test now. You do not have to wonder. Please as your Gynecologist what the HPV test showed.
