Thanks so much! I will check up with my dr. if I am still having this issue after this period, since it's just around the corner (1-2) weeks. I think after finding out that I have HPV I would be comforted by knowing that I don't have anything else (hopefully)! Does anyone know appox. how much a full round of STI testing would cost? Or what to expect? I wouldn't need HIV testing, Ive had that done in the last 2 months (for my life insurance), and over the past 3 years (I worked at a plasma center, and stuck myself with a used needle) and have continued to test negative for it. Your input did ease my mind a bit, but I'm still kinda freaking out, I just don't know if I can handle much more and try to stay stress free. I'm trying keep the stress to a min. to help my immune system fight this HPV and if I found out I have more problems I don't think it'd help. It also doesn't help that starting the YAZ is fairly new, my body has really been through it all the past few months. I even started the Gardisil vacc. I realize my story isnt as bad as other people's so I'm lucky in that sense, but I've definitly learned how to take better care of my health!

I'm sure that the price varies depending what state you live, and also what doctor you go to, but this is probably relatively close.
