High Risk HPV
dumbluck posted:
Just received a call from the doctor's office saying that my pap came back normal but I tested positive for high risk HPV. They said I need to wait for a referral and be seen by an OB/GYN.

Ok, back about 13 years ago, I had an abnormal pap with high risk HPV and precancerous cells. I had them removed via cryotherapy.

I've never tested positive for HPV since then.
Now my question is this, since it clears up on its own usually, did I get re-infected with it or does it lay dormant and come back? I'm a little confused on this part.

Why do I need to see an OB/GYN if my pap is normal?

Thanks in advance.
