HPV Diagnosis

Hey Ladies!

I just got the results from my annual exam and my Pap Smear. Everything came back fine and negative except that I came back positive for HPV. My Gyno said that it’s not the dangerous strain which I believe were 16 and 18 and that HPV is as common as the chicken pox and that it’s no big deal. She also told me not to google it...She said that in most cases it clears up on it’s own and that I’ll get retested next year. She said to just be healthy and put it out of my mind..I’m of course freaking out! I’m upset, I’m worried. Idk. I want children in the future, I’m just spiraling I think. 🙁

Any advice, ladies? ❤️
