Low grade cells and HPV positive

Low grade cells and HPV positive


So I've been for my 1st smear and confirmed that I have low grade cells and also HPV. I was so shocked about the HPV as I went aware it was an std and also I have also the hpv jab while at school. But after doing research I found out it only protects you for only for 10 years and also that you can still get the virus 


My doctor confirmed that I didn't need to tell any partners about as it's so common and goes away on it's own.  I have been referred for a colposcopy and wanted to know whether if they automatically test for HPV at all colposcopies  or only if only they show on your smear?

Also can they just discharge you there and then if they don't see anything and go back to going every three years?
