So I slept with my new boyfriend last April and then in October, my pap smear came back 'borderline changes'. I repeated it last month and it came back CIN 1. I went for a colpo and there is still an abnormal looking spot there. What is going on? Perhaps I never did have HPV and just got it from my new boyfriend (I would be furious if this were the case as I was refused the HPV vaccine on the basis that I already had HPV)? The doctor seems to think the abnormal cells just keep coming and going but isn't it weird to have 7 normal paps in a row if you have CIN 1? Or am I overreacting?
EDIT - The doc did a HPV test this time, she said to find out whether the abnormal cells on my cervix were caused by HPV. What else could cause them? I was under the impression that the abnormalities they saw during the colpo and abnormal paps definitely indicated HPV?
