    Very Frightened And Concerned

    By: MeWritten on April 17th, 2013I just out of the whim asked for an HPV test during my normal pap. Then... the doc called and said my pap was abnormal and I have HPV.So by then, I was super scared not really knowing what HPV is and having never had an abnormal pap. They scheduled a coloposcopy and took a biopsy.Monday, she called and said I have mild cervical dysplasia. She said not to worry because the body usually heals this on its own. I've read soooooo many articles and am now confused and scared even more.Im already takibg certain vitamins because I also am a gastric bypass patient. Now im not sure what my body truly needs. Ive got to heal and cure my cervix. My dream is totally dependent on being able to have a family and kids of my own. Let alone I never want to hear the C word and feel even worse! Please anybody....offer advice. Im a Christian and I'm trying to let God take care of this...but I stress out over things I cant control.

    Listen to what your physician has told you. Very often the immune system clears HPV on its own and for many, mild cervical dysplasia never progresses beyond this level.

    It's likely your immune system is perfectly fine even after the gastric bypass for obesity surgery.
