... Based on the interim normal paps since the abnormal one 5 years ago, it sounds like the abnormal cells and probably the HPV too resolved on their own. This is common in normal, healthy women especially younger ones. And your doctor is correct in saying that abnormal cells typically take many years (as many as 10) to develop into cancer.

... Okay, here's the story. I saw a doctor 5 years ago and had an abnormal pap. Positive HPV. She told me I had to come back. I did, and she did a colposcopy on me.

I am going to have a colposcopy in 4 mos and see how things are. I think I am going to have a different doctor do it, because I want someone else to “see” what he is seeing so I can trust it as...
