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! ...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?
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. ...Read more
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 ...Read more
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! ...Read more
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. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
Pap Smear stated "The HPV DNA reflex criteria were not met with this specimen result- therefore, no HPV testing was performed". What does this mean?
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? ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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 related to hormonal alterations or mechanical irritation. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
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.

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. ...Read more

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.

Pap showed ascus. This was a pap done right after I took diflucan (fluconazole) and finished Monistat regimen for a bad yeast infection, is it HPV or benign?
Both?: The hpv test is separate from the ascus diagnosis. A separate test should be done if it was not already done to test for hpv. Inflammation can contribute to ascus. If hpv is positive with ascus, you should undergo a painless procedure called colposcopy. It allows a closer look at the cervix and may localize the source of the inflammatory cells (ascus). ...Read more
Needs evaluation: Ascus stands for atypical cells of uncertain significance. The pap smear is a screening test that samples cervical cells imperfectly. In the presence of hrhpv, a dysplastic or precancer lesion may possibly be present, even though the pap smear didn't show dysplastic cells. For that reason, a colposcopy looking at the cervix with a microscope should be done with biopsies of suspicious areas. ...Read more

HPV is not in any way specifically an STD nor can ANYONE, including the doctor, predict when or from whom one acquired HPV. ...Read more

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
