I was recently diagnosed with high risk HPV.

I had a biopsy done which was a lot more painful than the doctors claimed it would be. I ended up going back to the doctor because I was still bleeding after the 2 weeks I was told I would have "spotting." The doctor that I saw that time said that the doctor who did the biopsy didn't cover the whole site with the "bandage" goop. I ended up getting a bad infection because of it. What other complications could this cause? Could this be why I experience pain during intercourse? Could this be causing my vaginal fluid to be thicker? Could this also be the reason I have a hard time "getting wet"? Am I at a higher risk of getting cancer because of all this? I know I should have asked my doctors but I never remember to. :( So, if anyone could help me out it would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks! :D

Hi Confused,

I'm sorry to hear you've been through such a painful ordeal. The biopsy and it's aftermath won't increase the likelihood that HPV and cervical cell changes will progress to cancer. The most important thing in that respect is that you go for follow up exams as directed, and it sounds like you're doing just that.

I'm not sure what is most likely causing the other problems you're having, or if they might be related to the biopsy or the infection. I wish I could offer you something here, but you really will have to just check back with your doctor. You may be able to call and chat with a nurse.

Please check in and let us know how you're doing and what you find out, if you don't mind.

Best,
Fredo
