HPV and Cervical Cancer
I really hate having HPV, because I feel like I cannot ever be with anyone sexually other than my boyfriend (who I have infected). I dont want to be with anyone else, but it feels weird knowing that I am going to be like this for a while. My boyfriend was with me and super supportive through this whole thing. It started about 6 months ago when I began having pain during sex so I went to the gyno to get checked out. I went back for my follow up, and I burst into tears when they told me my pap was abnormal. Now I know how common cancer of the cervix is, and how common HPV is, but at the time I felt pretty awful. I have no babies and the thought of people messing around inside my body with knives and stuff like that totaly freaks me out. Well after months and lots of uncomfortable procedures, I had my lesion removed with LEEP. It was pretty wrong, the whole thing, but it is nice to know I am not alone. It does make it easier to deal with. The HPV bothers me but its part of my life for now. Dont know if it matters now but I used to be promiscuous and now I am not, and never will be again.
