Thank you Torrie. Wow, that's a lot of information!

I guess I'll know more about whether I have the high-risk strains after my pap results are back.

My original thinking was to have them take my cervix because of my mom's pre-cancerous condition at the time of her hyst. I thought that since HPV makes a woman more likely to get cervical cancer, and I had it, and my mom had the pre-cancer; voila! Instant need to remove cervix. Maybe I'll come to a different conclusion after all of this information.

I still don't know for sure-but my doctor will have a good idea and I'm sure to listen. But I will make MY decision once I'm satisfied that my research has been completed.

Thank you so much for helping me out

One more thing...

I did have severe dysplasia and carcinoma in situ. At the doctor's office I went to at the time, they didn't bother doing an HPV test. They've decided that if a woman has gotten to where I got, it's a no brainer that they have HPV--one of the high risk strains.

So, do push to get tested. Not all offices do this automatically with routine pap smears. I sure wish I'd known I had it! I went from 20+ years of negative paps to pre-invasive cancer in one year. Who knows how long I'd had it.

Then, the same doc who did the LEEP to remove the cancerous tissue, strongly encouraged me to keep my cervix when I had my hyst.

Good for you for doing your research!

Hi NewBodyPlz,
Wow, lots of info. I don't disagree with any of what I read but I did want to share my experience with you....I too went from a normal pap to CIN3 (severe dysplasia) in one year. My GYN did a HPV test at the same time as my biopsy and the HPV test came back negative but like Margot said when you have CIN3 all docs pretty much assume you have HPV. Since my cryo all my paps have been normal however my cervix bleeds easily now and due to how it looked during a follow up coloscopy I had to have another biopsy last year. Everything turned out fine but my doc says due to my history she wants to take everything. (I suffer from endo and PCOS as well). My suggestion is to ask your doctor what he/she thinks and for specific reasons to keep or not to, depending on their answer. I've also heard of women who have multiple strands of the virus, so initially you may just suffer the cervical change issue but later develop warts or vice versa....just some stuff to think about. Good luck!
