Sometimes a Pap test result will say "ASC-US" which stands for Atypical Squamous Cells of Undetermined Significance. This means that something is causing the Pap test reading to be unclear. Causes can include: a local irritation due to vaginal intercourse, douching, or using tampons 24 hours before the Pap test, yeast infection, HPV, your period, or even a mistake in the preparation of the cell sample. To help sort out these possibilities, another Pap smear may be repeated in several months. Sometimes an HPV DNA test is done along with the Pap. Ask your healthcare provider if you have questions about follow up.

This is all something to sort out with your provider, to be sure, but we can tell you in very general terms that ASC-US Paps often don't relate to HPV and when they do, it's not unusual for them to self-resolve. If treatment is in fact needed, the treatment and subsequent follow up exams almost always prevent health complications from developing.
I hope this helps. Please post again to update us, if you don't mind, and let us know if you have other questions.
