I posted about my HPV+ last month here and I wanted to let you know that you all truly helped me get through with it and come to terms that I do have it.
I had my colposcopy procedure just this Monday (which went better than I expected!) and I got my results from my Dr. today and I wanted to let you all know that it was negative!! I truly was expecting the worse because I did not want to get my hopes up only to be heartbroken if the result was something other than that.
I essentially understand my result, that I do not have pre-cancerous cells. But I still feel that I'm not truly understanding it..maybe I'm still trying to absorb it all. Can you VPer's help clarify this for me? What does this mean for me in the future? I know that just because my result was negative, I still do have the virus. I was told to come back after 6 months and my Dr. told me it will probably go away, but as much I hope that it will turn out that way I don't want to get my hopes for nothing cause there are endless possibilities.
What do I do now? What do I do to maintain my cells from becoming abnormal again? I read somewhere that taking vitamins such as folic acid can help..what are your thoughts on this?
Also to those who had a colposcopy before - -I have a question about the liquid band aid. I was informed to expect dark-coffee ground-like vaginal discharge, however I haven't had any of that, is this okay?
Sorry so much questions, I feel so silly asking so much but I really would like your input.
Thanks so much again!
