Hello. I am new to this group. I was recently diagnosed with HPV. I'm assuming it is the high risk kind as I need to go in for a colposcopy. I'm worried sick. I went through this same experience 14 years ago and I thought it was behind me. I am now 36 years old and so very worried that my body won't be able to clear out the infection since I'm older. I've also been reading information online about oral and anal cancer. I have to say I'm terrified of these as well and has just given me anther thing to worry about. The only thing that is making me feel somewhat at ease is the fact that I go in for my routine Pap smear every single year, no exceptions. I just wish I wasn't such a worrier. Any words of advice would be great. Thank you all in advance.
It really lifted my spirits today that I read the virus can actually leave!
Yes ur body will fight off the virus that what my doc told me
