Why repeat pap every 6 months? Landy's Mama <3 1 child; Ashland, Kentucky 1555 posts

While I was pregnant with my son I was told i had HPV and after I had him I had to have a biopsy done and it came back as mild dysplasia and had to have cryo done. Why do i have to have a repeat pap every 6, what's the worse that could happen?

They do it to make sure there has been no change in the abnormal cells.

Quoting annabelle509:" cancer."


uh that was rude, scary and uninformative.



they repeat them so often to make sure nothing is growing back and you're staying healthy. if they catch something quick its much easier to fix

I would definitely go back. It's for your health. I know it sucks having to go back that often, but it's better if there is any change, that it's caught early on.

and i would rather be honest and straight forward then shy away from a topic as serious as cancer. if you just say well its to be sure nothing is coming back, and it is for your health and safety, more than likely her next appt will be put off. if you say the truth, you could have cancer if it does not get caught in time, maybe she will be sure to go to her next appt.
