In brief: What it says

You should go and discuss this at length with the gynecologist who did the pap.
Severe inflammation may be due to several causes. Changes that show tissue repair are the body's response to the inflammation and this may be due to the bacterial vaginosis or to other causes like hpv (although not necessarily the type that predisposes to cancer. Go back and see your doctor and ask these questions.
