LSIL with high risk HPV detected

I am 31 years old and not married. I had my last pap test about more than 2-3 years ago and the result was normal (i.e. I didn't do my annual pap test). I had unprotected sex about a year ago but we broke up.

I am in a new relationship recently and we have protected sex. Then, I decided I should have a pap test recently and my primary care doctor called me and told me I had LSIL with high risk HPV detected so she referred me to see a gynecologist. I have made an appointment on the coming Tuesday. I am very worried and I found myself very selfish and stupid. The doctor didn't tell me much about what LSIL with high risk HPV detected means. I googled around and heard many diff tests and treatments. What I should do currently please apart from waiting and how I can help myself to heal it (I know I can't get rid of the HPV but I don't want to get worser)? and how I should tell my partner please? I am not if he can accept me anymore.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Hi Daphne,
This is the information about LSIL from the Free Dictionary: Gynecologic cytology A lesion of the uterine cervix which is characterized by cells occurring singly or in sheets, nuclear abnormalities in cells with mature cytoplasm, bi- or multinucleation, well-defined optically clear perinuclear halo, distinct cell borders and others that translate into either HPV infection or mild dysplasia–CIN 1 of uterine cervix–a diagnosis made on biopsied tissue.
HPV has several different strands while some may be there and you would never have any symptoms. High-risk is usually associated with possible Cervical Cancer (dysplasia), you may experience warts. There is no cure for HPV at this time although it is very common. Sharing this information with your partner is important since you can pass it along.
The May Clinic has some great information about HPV and you can find the information here http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/hpv-infection/DS00906/DSECTION=treatments-and-drugs. You should certainly follow up with your physician to see what treatments will be good for your case. Can you keep us updated?
Best in Health,
