I'm 29 and due to anxiety and depression the first and only time i've had sex was 10 years ago. My first smear test was around 3 years ago and came back as HPV positive, which completely blew me away. My second smear was just last month (later than it should have been, i know, bad) and the results came back as HPV positive yet again, meaning i've been positive for the past 10 years, the cells however were normal. Due to the fact it's still there after 10 years, does this mean it will eventually cause cervical cancer? I read online that there's different kinds of HPV, some worse than others, and the kind that stays longer is the one to cause cancer. Is this true?
Is it normal to have HPV for so long? Should i mention this to my dr? As far as i am aware i am healthy apart from my mental health, which i'm working on. I don't understand why my immune stystem isn't getting rid of the hpv?
I've had no other signs of HPV at all, no warts or anything. I wouldn't have known it was even there without the smear test.
Any advise would be helpful, thank you.
