Cervical dysplasia is caused by HPV, human papilloma virus, which is very common. It is estimated that 60-80% of sexually active individuals have been exposed to HPV. A few of those viruses are 'high risk', meaning they are more likely to lead to cervical precancer and cancer. Dysplasia is considered a precancer and needs to be followed closely. It is best to use a condom with sex to reduce the risk of exposing others to this virus (and likewise reducing the risk that you will be exposed to a different HPV type). If you are in a monogamous relationship a condom will not be of benefit, you are both already exposed to the virus, but if not, condoms, condoms, condoms.

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Cervical Dysplasia, is the term used to  indicates that abnormal cells were found on the surface of the cervix.  It's important to discuss with your doctor, any test results, to know the cause of Dysplasia.
