It: It is unlikely that it is related to hpv. It may be that you need a different preparation of birth control pills to control your bleeding. It would be worthwhile to discuss this with your prescriber. You may need different pills with a different formulation. Be sure your pap smear is up to date while you are there. ...Read more

I'm HPV positive with LSIL. Should I tell my bf that I have HPV? I already showed him my LSIL result.
HPV: HPV is a very common virus. It is probably more dangerous for women than men. You are wise to keep a close watch on this with your GYN. It would be best to inform your boyfriend and all sexual partners that you have HPV. Use of a condom can help prevent it's spread. If you BF were to develop condylomata they can be easily treated with cryotherapy, laser ablation or excision. ...Read more
Should I tell my bf of 8 months that I recently received a HPV positive result? He told me he was clean but does not seem scared of LSIL result.
Probably should tell: HPV causing abnormal pap usually is harmless in men. He may already know or assume you have HPV; it's the only cause of LSIL. He should be on the lookout for genital warts, and at least for that reason you should make sure he understands. There's no need to take precautions against transmission to him; he's already been repeatedly exposed and probably infected, or maybe was the source of your HPV. ...Read more
I am 24, HPV positive with a LSIL. Will HPV go away on its own? I am so scared that I might also have it in my throat.
Don't worry: Being HPV positive is actually very common. It has been found to increase the risk of development of cervical cancer. Precancerous cells can be detected on PAP smear and can be treated years before cancer develops. You have the advantage of knowing that you are positive. You simply need to have more frequent PAP smears and any treatment recommended and you will be fine. ...Read more
Will my body eventually suppress HPV? I am 24 years old with recently diagnosed HPV (January, 2015), LSIL from December 24, 2014.Chances of eradication?
See below: Your immune system can control viral replication but elimination of dysplastic lesions is the goal in treating squamous intraepithelial lesions (SILs). There are generally two options after the diagnosis of low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions has been confirmed by biopsy: follow up with repeat Pap tests every 4-6 months, or local excision such as LEEP biopsy ...Read more
It could: These are too different things. LGSIL means that abnormal cells were seen on the pap smear. Your HPV test looked for specific types of High risk HPV. It does not test for all kinds of HPV. Regardless the management is the same. The next step is a microscope exam of the cervix called a Colposcopy. ...Read more
My daughter is 19 received abnormal pap now has had another she has lsil HPV is there a complete cure?
Unindicated testing: It's not recommended for young women to have pap smears until the age of 21. The reason for this is exactly what is is happening to your daughter. There is too high of a rate of abnormal readings that are not important to her long term health. I suggest she see a gynecologist who keeps up with the latest testing guidelines. ...Read more
Cervical biopsy is negative. I have HPV and had a LSIL 4 months ago. Does this mean that it cleared? Over read? I also have warts. 24 years old
Follow it: LSIL comes and goes. Keep an eye on it. The biopsy also may have missed a tiny patch. Do comply with recommended management and you'll be safe. These are good questions. ...Read more
HPV + and LSIL. Scared that it might also be in mouth and anus. I am 24 years old. Should I worry or will it go away?
Probably go away: HPV is very common but it will go away in most people until reinfection occurs. We know more about progression of HPV changes in the cervix than in the anal or oral areas. So far, we know there is a predictable sequence of dysplasia progression to cancer over years in the cervix only. LSIL may go away by itself, but make sure you follow up. There is no standard screening yet for anal or oral. ...Read more
I have HPV, am 24, LSIL cleared according to negative colposcopy. I am scared that the virus could be present in other body parts. Will I be ok?
It will clear up: The genital types of HPV are pretty much limited to the genitals, anus, and less often the mouth or throat. The immune system clears the infection from all sites over several months to a couple of years. HPV DNA may persist, but rarely reactivates to cause future problems, especially with the low risk types that cause most LSIL. But ask your doc about HPV vaccination to prevent new infections. ...Read more
Never got HPV diagnosis, but asc-us/asc-h/hsil/lsil colpo & paps in past so def hpv. Illegal to have unprotected sex with boyfriend without telling?
I have HPV and I am 24, LSIL with negative biopsy. Received good advice here but still worried. I might haveHPV in other body parts and vaccine. Help?
Don't worry: HPV is very common. Your body's immune system should clear the virus. Take good care of yourself with good food, good sleep, exercise, and relaxation. If you haven't had the HPV vaccine talk to your doctor about it. And most importantly get regular check ups - hopefully it will clear within a year or two. ...Read more
If pap results come back I have LSIL does it mean I have high risk Hpv or could it be due to just having Hpv?
LSIL from HPV: It is probably a high risk HPV that is causing the changes in the cells of your cervix. Frequently a pap will also report whether there is high or low risk HPV present. In my office, the lab that does the paps automatically checks for HPV on abnormal paps. ...Read more
HPV+ and LSIL. I have been in a monogamous relationship and we do not use condoms. Would condom use with my partner make lesions regress?
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
Should I be depressed about having HPV? I am 24 and was diagnosed in February. I got a LSIL in December. Will my body suppress the virus? My sex life?
No, not for life: I think you're the same person who asked a very similar question not long ago. See my previous reply. Your immune system will clear your HPV. LSIL isn't serious and will also clear up. This should have no effect at all on your sex life. You're not alone: almost everyone gets HPV at least once, and at any time 25-50% of all people your age have it. Get vaccinated to reduce future risk of HPV. ...Read more

The change in the lesions is not out of the ordinary. Please do follow your doctor's advice for repeat tests.
