I'm up late googling incessantly after my smear test that I had done yesterday and I'm hoping someone can snap me out of it!
In December 2019 I had a smear test with an HPV positive result but no abnormal cells found, and was invited for another test in 12 months. As far as I can understand, if the HPV result showed up positive, I have one of the high risk types? The letter said that your body usually clears the infection and to come back in 12 months to make sure your body has fought it off.
The very next day upon receiving those results I quit smoking - Jan 4th 2020 and haven't had a cigarette since. I've started taking vitamins and I've done couch to 5k, I'm now doing bridge to 10k to give myself more of a challenge. I have really tried as much as possible to make my body healthy to fight this thing.
fast forward to yesterday for my follow up smear and I was so super nervous. The smear itself was ok and the nurse seemed quite dismissive about my previous HPV positive result, which in a way calmed me down a bit, but I'm sitting here googling different types of HPV and cell changes and I can't stop. I just feel like it's judgement day - that all this work I've put in all year will either have worked, or it hasn't.
I just wondered from your experiences whether anyone has cleared an HPV infection. Has anyone quit smoking to get a negative result, and if so how long did it take? Has anyone taking specific vitamins to get rid of it?
thank you so much
