I am a 26 year old female. In 2010 I had a abnormal pap and my gyno at the time told me to stop having sex unprotected and that I should prob get the HPV vaccine and nothing else. I am assuming at the time if she did think I had HPV she assumed it would just go away on its own. I didn’t think too much of it and I never got the vaccine. This year I got a pap for the first time since then and it was abnormal once again. I was referred to a gyno who said they didn’t see anything on my cervix but I did in fact have HPV. I have never had any sort of warts. I just don’t know if this is a good thing? Is this forever? Is there still a chance I can in the future have cervical cancer? Is there still a chance that it may clear up on its own? Everything is worrying me honestly and I don’t really know much about the virus.
The chances of you getting cervical cancer are very, very low because it takes forever to manifest, like decades, so it's always found and dealt with should it even think about starting with you which it likely won't. Get the vaccine.
