? about HPV

if you have HPV and have your cervix removed when you have a hyster does that mean you no longer have hpv??

good question

I was told cervix had cin ll hpv ( with a ?) and clear margins, and path. conclusion said cin ll excised.

However, as I had A and P repairs at same time, and the dysplasia was not even in the agenda as reason for hyst, I got a shock and did a bit of reading up as well.

My conclusion is that is that is hpv can't be cured, it could recur and make cellular changes in what's left of my cervix ( cuff) or vaginal area so I will continue to have annual smears taken from these areas.

I believe that the abnormal cells can be removed if clear margins so don't expect a recurrence from those cells, but feel my body has potential for new changes from the hpv virus to susceptible cells if my health levels get a knock or immunity drops from stress.

I also initially felt awful because of the perceived association with a std but my reading has cleared up these hurtful fallacies for me so I hope you too will be able to see the logic and forget the stigma from ignorance.

I had my one year vault smear recently, and it was clear.

This site has great links on hpv and dysplasia. Hope this helps a bit, Linda

I too have heard that HPV is still there. That is why we continue to need vault smears for the vaginal area.

? about HPV

HPV was suspected on my pathology report when I had my radical hysterectomy but never diagnosed because my gyno and my surgeon did not have my abnormal pap tested for it.

I do have some dysplasia on my vaginal vault and they are testing me to let me know.

I am taking Folic Acid to fight it - not sure if that will work but
it is worth a try.
