You're OK: Oral sex is safe sex for HIV, with no proved transmissions by fellatio from mouth to penis, only rare ones penis to oral. You didn't need testing on account of this event and for sure not the multiple expensive ones you had. But the results from that combination of tests are conclusive. For sure you didn't catch HIV during that exposure and no further testing is needed. Best wishes and stay safe!

Hpv (Definition)

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection. There are over 100 different types of HPV that causes warts in different areas of the body. HPV is incredibly common and almost all sexually active men and women get it during their lifetime. Most of the time HPV does not cause any symptoms or complications. However, A limited number of these HPV viruses are pathogenic and if not monitored carefully can be responsible for causing cervical and penile cancer. Some of these viruses have been ...Read more

PapIGrfxHPV ASCU results negative for my pap HPV say (NEGHPV) HPV DNA reflex criteria were not met with this specimen result NO HPV test perform mean?

PapIGrfxHPV ASCU results negative for my pap HPV say (NEGHPV) HPV DNA reflex criteria were not met with this specimen result NO HPV test perform mean?

Normal, no HPV: If I correctly understand the abbreviations, your doctor ordered a pap smear for which HPV testing was to be done if the smear was abnormal. Your pap did not show those abnormalities; therefore HPV testing wasn't done. In other words, it's all good news: your results were fine with nothing to worry about. If you remain uncertain for some reason, contact your doctor's office.

Severe anxiety ascus hpv negative Dna 3, yrs ago had next pap nrml now this one ascus e6/e7 married 22 years scared cancer what does this mean?

Confusing: Your question is a bit confusing but I think you are saying your current pap smear is ASCUS HPV + with E6/E7 HPV RNA. If that is the case then the next step is a colposcopy - a microscope exam of the cervix. Cancer is very unlikely with this level of pap abnormality but some cervical abnormalities could be detected by the exam. Early detection is key

Wife had her 1st ascus pap result. The doctor then did an HPV dna/rna test & no results provided. Should she be concerned and request the results?

Wife had her 1st ascus pap result. The doctor then did an HPV dna/rna test & no results provided. Should she be concerned and request the results?

HPV DNA Testing: Yes. Simple as it sounds, please have your wife contact the physician who ran the test and request results. But, please be aware that these results often take a bit longer to be reported. And, once in a great while the testing medium is unable to isolate enough cells to do the test with any kind of accuracy and the test then needs to be repeated. But, this test is a very good improvement!

Abnormal pap smear result, chart online says A in "Flag" category w/ HSIL. With title "Pap IG, CT-Ng, rfx HPV ASCU what does this mean? Do I have HPV?

Abnormal pap smear result, chart online says A in "Flag" category w/ HSIL. With title "Pap IG, CT-Ng, rfx HPV ASCU what does this mean? Do I have HPV?

Follow up on this!: It is not entirely clear what this line means but let me break it down for you a bit. HSIL stands for high grade squamous intraepithelial lesion. 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.

Had HSV DNA PCR test with CSF? Negative. Also had HSV 1/2 antibody (IgM), IFA with reflex to Titer, CSF. Negative. Can I still have HSV 1 or 2?

Had HSV DNA PCR test with CSF? Negative. Also had HSV 1/2 antibody (IgM), IFA with reflex to Titer, CSF. Negative. Can I still have HSV 1 or 2?

No HSV in CNS: With these tests, you're obviously under a doctor's care, maybe including an infectious diseases specialist or neurologist. They can answer these questions best. But these results effectively rule out HSV infection of your central nervous system. Something else is causing the problem. That said, the HSV IgM test is notoriously unreliable. You probably also had an IgG test, probably negative.

Pap/ HPV reflex to hpv16/18 with ct/cg show endocervical, glandular or metaplastic cells/ or parabasal cells present. Is this simply inflammation?

In reality, this is: All what you have to do if having history of HPV is doing PAP smear more diligent and vigilant than those without HPV since there is nothing could be done with the past, in attesting: Life is a constant changing and adjusting dynamic process of struggle to cope with reality, certainty, & uncertainty of daily living for survival, growth, & continuation from inception to eternity.

Simple: They may have done the traditional pap smear, but were unable to perform the additional HPV testing due to problems with the specimen.

Is there any way to screen for HPV infection, especially HPV-16 infection in men in the U.S.? Like a PCR test or some other way my doctor can do this?

Is there any way to screen for HPV infection, especially HPV-16 infection in men in the U.S.? Like a PCR test or some other way my doctor can do this?

Not worth it: Tony, I'm proud you want to be a responsible lover. Take the HPV injection series instead. Some tests are available but nobody knows what to do with the data. Would you forgo a loving relationship because you do, or do not, have HPV-16 on board? What man would do that? You'll keep an eye out for lesions regardless. If you're not going to do anything different, don't to the test. Make sense?

Can I have sex again to have a child after 11 months of last exposure with multiple (-) HIV PCR and Combo? ; also (-) Syphilis, Hep A, B&C, Herpes & HPV

Can I have sex again to have a child after 11 months of last exposure with multiple (-) HIV PCR and Combo? ; also (-) Syphilis, Hep A, B&C, Herpes & HPV

Yes: If the nucleic acid tests were negative at 11 months after potential exposure, you are free of the infections and can try to have a baby. Start taking pre-natal vitamins. Wish you good health and a healthy baby. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

Can I do PCR test for HIV, Hepatitis, HPV 18, 16, 12 after 32 days of risk exposure? The Result will be accurate and reliable? Peace of mind?

Can I do PCR test for HIV, Hepatitis, HPV 18, 16, 12 after 32 days of risk exposure? The Result will be accurate and reliable? Peace of mind?

Yes and no: AT 32 days, you should not have a PCR test for HIV, only the standard antigen-antibody test (4th generation). It will be conclusive. Its too early for hepatitis, though; wait until 6 weeks (although hepatitis is so rare after any single exposure that most experts don't recommend testing at all). Don't waste money on HPV testing; it takes several months to show up, and everybody gets HPV anyway.

2nd opinion: This problem can only be solved by seeing your doctor and being evaluated face-to-face. After a thorough examination, your doctor should be able to tell you what's wrong and what to do about it.

Can you tell me what could cause an ascus pap that's not related to hpv?

Can you tell me what could cause an ascus pap that's not related to hpv?

Many things.: Asc-us stands for atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance. This means that there are a few cells with mild abnormality that are not definitely associated with hpv or precancer/cancer. Sometimes these cell changes are caused by other infections such as yeast infections or bacterial vaginosis. Sometimes these cell changes are related to hormonal alterations or mechanical irritation.

Regular paps all normal. Jan 2014 ascus. April 2014 normal. Oct 2014 ascus. Feb 2015 ascus and positive hpv. (First hpv) How likely is this cancer??

Regular paps all normal. Jan 2014 ascus. April 2014 normal. Oct 2014 ascus. Feb 2015 ascus and positive hpv. (First hpv) How likely is this cancer??

It is not cancer: It is pre-cancer all you have to do is follow up with those ascus reports with a biopsy to see how bad the dysplasia is. If it's high-grade dysplasia and you'll need to have a small portion of your cervix removed this is very common. This will cure your HPV in many cases. The chance of getting squamous cell carcinoma if you follow up our almost 0 please follow up.

What does "hpv high if ascus thin prep" mean?

What does "hpv high if ascus thin prep" mean?

HPV test done if ASC: This means that if a person has a pap test result of asc-us (atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance), then the lab will perform a high risk hpv dna test. If the dna test is negative, then the "atypia" is less likely caused by an hpv infection. If the dna test is positive, then the "atypia" is more likely caused by an hpv infection. Hope that this helps.

My wife result it say HPV yes if ascus what does it mean?

?: Are you talking about a result, or an order form? If her pap is minimally abnormal (ascus) they sometimes order an hpv test automatically, to see if that is the cause.

What can cause an ascus pap (besides hpv)?

What can cause an ascus pap (besides hpv)?

Unknown: The name itself almost gives you the answer to your question: ASCUS stands for "abnormal squamous cells of undetermined significance". Most important, ASCUS appears to be harmless. Follow you doctor's advice about possible follow-up pap smears or other tests, but don't be worried about this. Good luck!

Is there a difference between ascus and high risk hpv?

Is there a difference between ascus and high risk hpv?

Yes: Ascus is an abbreviation used to classify changes to the cells of the cervix. Ascus can be reported as hpv positive or hpv negative. If it is hpv positive, then the high risk types of hpv are present and you should have a colposcopy of the cervix performed. If it is hpv negative, then you can go back to normal pap smear screening. After an ascus hpv negative, I have people return in one year.

Irregular periods and diagnose with ASCUS HPV. What should I do?

See gynecologist: Ascus[atypical cells of undetermined significance] from human papiloma virus; sexually tram]nsmitted disease therefore need yearly paps, rmemeber condoms don't prevent hpv or herpes virus, because skin around it contacts, studies with couples where 1 had it, other didn't and used condoms still had same rate of contagiousness, it can helps with stds like gonorrhea and chlamydia, wait marriage

Ascus pap result, HPV 18 positive. Had colposcopy, 3 spots were biopsied and ecc done. How likely is this to come back as cancer?

Ascus pap result, HPV 18 positive. Had colposcopy, 3 spots were biopsied and ecc done. How likely is this to come back as cancer?

Possible precancer: HPV18 is one of the high risk HPV subtypes and coupled with a PAP smear dx of ASCUS, it is likely that the biopsy will show squamous intraepithelial lesion or dysplasia which means a precancerous lesion, either low or high grade. Biopsy an follow up should ensure that it may never become invasive cancer.

Computed Tomography (Definition)

Ct uses xrays taken an 360 degrees combined with a computer to see"inside" the body. The table moves as the xray tube and detectors spin around the patient 10 times a second or more! The image shows excellent soft tissue detail, enhanced with injection of intravenous contrast or oral contrast. This way the body is shown in slices, in any plane, usually axially, but ...Read more


Polymerase Chain Reaction (Definition)

Polymerase chain reaction is a method of finding a specific piece of dna and copying it over and over again until there is enough to study. The technique allows a scientist to detect very small amounts of dna in a swab sample then reproduce enough of it to study it. It is very sensisitive for detecting the presence of certain bacteria and is also used in doing other ...Read more
