Trying to Get Pregnant

Question for those who tested positive for HPV and/or had abnormal pap.

So my procedure is tomorrow (if all goes well with the weather, we are expecting tons of ice) and I am nervous. I am getting a colpo and biopsy. My DH took off so I do not have to bring my 3 year old with me.

What kind of questions should I ask in regards to the procedure and virus? I am at a loss...and will it hurt?

Also I did a lot of damage reading about it on line. If you test positive for high risk HPV, is any of that linked to genital warts? I guess I am asking if since I tested positive whether this is at all linked to genital warts....so many thoughts going through my mind right now....ugh.

Hopefully when all this is said and done, and I am healthy I will be back to TTC again...TIA...I am scared.

    It's nothing to be scared about I had that don't about 3 years ago. It's not really painful you might feel some cramping but just take a couple advil before you go and you will be fine. As far as I know or can remember there are three levle of hpv the biopsy will give them a better idea of what level you are at. As far as the warts I never had them I guess again it just depends of what kind/ level you have. Good luck!

    I had abnormal cells like 9 years ago and had a coloposcopy done. It was quick. Hurt a little and crampy for like an hour after. No big deal really. GL and stop googling!

    It is my understanding that high risk has the potential to be cancerous. The low risk causes warts. I hope things go well. Remember that most hpv will go away on it's own.

    I heard that when you are past age 30 it is harder to get rid of...I am a month away from being 30, which sucks on so many levels lol

    I've had about 6 colpos done, I know how you feel about going in for the first one. I was scared to death!

    I don't know about high risk HPV, I think I had the low risk one, so I can't help you with that question!

    The biopsy is uncomfortable more than anything...it doesn't really hurt anymore than an uncomfortable pap. I did however have some uber bad cramping afterwards, so take the rest of the day off if you can. 

    Good luck, and I know it's hard, but try not to worry yourself sick over it! (Everyone told me that and I just wanted to punch them lol)

    The day that I had my procedure done I had some cramping and chunky gross discharge (be sure to have panty liners). ?The next day I was fine.

    I've never heard of it linked to genital warts.

    Good luck!?

    This is my understanding as well. I was diagnosed with the low risk kind in the past (which is associated with warts but doesn't show up in everyone). I guess there are hundreds of strains of HPV and I think only 2 of them are associated with warts. If you don't have one of them you are in the clear! When I was diagnosed my doc told me 80% of women have a strain of HPV within their lifetime. A lot of women have it and don't know because it can be dormant for years.

    I had these procedures done and have been completely fine for the last 3 years.  I know it's kind of scary.  I agree with the comment that it's only slightly worse than a pap.  You will be just fine!  Feel better!
