Does pap smear test for warts n hpv?

Usually. Usually the virus is not looked for unless your pap is abnormal. If it is abnormal, the lab I use will do what is called reflex testing for the presence or absence of the hpv virus. If your pap is normal, at his time, there is no recommended treatment for simply having the presence of the virus so unless there are visible lesions or an abnormal pap there is no further action necessary.
Can. The testing for "high risk" hpv, those subtypes that are linked to cancer, are sometimes done when a pap comes back with a designation of atypical sq cells undetermined signific, determining if we proceed with colpo bx. There has been a change in hpv screening without pap problem. Most people will not get cancer and 80% have had it at one pt. The test can increase stress without dec. Cervix ca.

Will I have HPV for life? I am 24 years old with genital warts and a recent LGSIL pap smear. Will my boyfriend of 6 months get the virus too?

No, not for life. The immune system clears HPV, although it can take up to 2 years. You can assume your BF has already been infected and even might be the source of your infection (you'll never know). Probably he'll never have symptoms, but should keep an eye out for warts.

If you have HPV, the infant can acquire it during delivery. "Congenital HPV" can make a newborn very sick. I don't know how old your baby is, but the symptoms can begin up to 30 days after delivery. Women with obvious lesions are more likely to transmit HSV to the baby, so your baby's risk is lower. It's also lower if you got your first outbreak before pregnancy. Please talk with your pediatrician. Dr. Anne. Read more...
