high risk HPV moderate dysplaysia
mjones1987 posted:
I am a 25 year old woman. in early november i had a colposcopy due to an abnormal pap that came back positive for high risk HPV. the biopsy result showed moderate dysplaysia. I am scheduled for LEEP surgery in early March. In the meanwhile, I am taking supplements that increase immune function, drinking green juices, not eating sugar or alcohol, and exercising regularly.
My question is this- does moderate dysplaysia ever resolve on its own? are my chances of it resolving higher because I'm young?
What are the odds that it goes from CIN II to CIN III between november and march? Will the LEEP biopsy show if it has progressed? Could the colposcopy biopsy have missed anything more severe?
I'm just terrified that my fertility was/is/will be compromised. In what cases to women have to get a hysterectomy?

Anon_6061 responded:
Are you saying you had an HPV test and a pap (they're separate tests)? Did you have previous abnormal paps hence the HPV test?

These links have a lot of information about pap test results, HPV, and cervical abnormalities (regression, progression, and treatments).

You can find studies about pregnancy and delivery after LEEP by doing a web search for "pubmed leep pregnancy outcomes."
