    im 22 n just recently found positive. kinda freakin out. ive never seen a break out. havent had symptoms and at this point im scared to tell my boyfriend that I am positive. my doc didnt really have any answer for me besides telling me to have safer sex. she pretty much told me I need to wait for lab results to come in to see if I have cancerous cells. my boyfriend of 3 yrs knows my pap test came bac abnormal..but at this point it is heart breaking to even think about telling him the news. I know if I have it he def does. this is just overwhelming.. can someone please help ease my mind n help find a way to tell him. cuz I know hes gona be anger n upset n devastated.

    I'm sorry you are dealing with this. Was he the only sexual partner you've had? I too, had an abnormal pap years ago, but back then I wasn't told that it was HPV and as far as I know I've never passed it on to any partner I've had since.

    ive 3 other sexual partners. I havent told him anything yet. waiting for lab results to come bac. but he hasnt had any breakouts either.

    So at present you do not know what the results will come back as. Wait till the results come back and then deal with it then. Worrying about it will not help you at all. Let us know what the results are and then Elle can help you further.
    God Bless you.
