HPV and the guilt/blame game

I tested positive for high risk HPV and ended up with CIS of the cervix a year later. My TVH was in January and I need to have paps every 3 months until they are what my doc calls "normal for me" for a full year. Once they are, I need to have normal paps every 6 months for two years. According to him, I am still at risk for vaginal cancer which can also be caused by HPV. Please don't assume the HPV is gone with the cervix. You don't want to take a chance on getting vaginal cancer!

HPV and the guilt/blame game


You are 100% right, I did not mean to imply that it is always gone forever. We should all continue with Paps and/or vaginal swabs even after our surgeries. HPV could remain, or we could be re-infected.

I've been going through as many threads as I can in the day, and I've hit the mother load!
The info you all have givin us who still feel very uninformed is absolutely wonderful.
I have HPV and because of the strength and positive outlooks from wonderfull women like yourselves I'M NOT ASHAMED!!!!!
There is no reason in my opinion to be ashamed about it, it's a virus like the flu, it has no preference.
I have to consider a hyster now because of my choices as a teen but who doesn't make choices w/o thinking of the consiquences.
None of us are perfect humans, we have temptations that we don't even realize can put our lives in jeopardy.
Com'on if someone had told me before I decided I wanted to know more about sex that I could end up w/ a virus ,( even though I used several means of protection) that could cause me cancer and take away my choice to have children.
I believe that we are all victims and there in no space for blame, shame or guilt. In fact we should hold our heads up high( boy am I in a good mood today) we are strong and will survive. It has made us stronger. We should not hide our heads in shame, but speak up and let the young women out there know about this virus. No one told me, if they had maybe I would have waited, probably gotten HPV a little later in life, but at least I wouldn't have to be deciding at 26 yrs old wether I should give my choice of having more children up. It's a hard decision, no woman at any age should ever have to deal with.
This is all my opinion, didn't mean to affend anyone. We all have opinions this is mine.

HPV and the guilt/blame game

God Bless you Bergene. I did not end up with cervical cancer but ended up with cance in situ of the vulva, no doubt caused by HPV. I didn't realize as a teenager what was going on with all that. I'm not sure if anyone did back then - I am now 45. I'm sorry for the position that this has put you in as far as having more children. Your positive attitute is great and inspiring.
