I just had my 6month pap so I'm not sure where my HPV is at...
but the doctor was suprised to find a huge fibroid blocking my right ovary.
The size of a grapefruit! This is a new gyno...the last time I went they didnt mention this to me..he seemed concerned it grew so big in 6 mos. I will have surgery to remove it.
Is this a coincidence or is there any connection to fibroids & High risk HPV???????

I try to keep positive but it's always something at the Gyno :cry:

Hi murch,

I'm not aware of any connection between HPV and ovarian fibroids. Most cases seem to be benign, and I don't think researchers are entirely sure just what causes fibroids.

Sorry I don't have more to offer!

Fredo
