Does abnormal pap always result in HPV if chlamydia and gonorrhea came back neg?

This is one step before cervical cancer and if that's what the pap said, you need a colposcopy and cervical biopsy. CT usually means chlamydia was negative. rfx HPV means reflex HPV in the event that the pap is ASCUS. HPV is positive for most HSIL. ...Read more

Yes: It is possible to have been exposed to hpv and still have a normal pap test. There is a specific test for hpv that you can request, but the good thing is that with a normal pap test there is some reassurance that, even if you have been exposed, it is not currently causing complication.
