During my last pap smear, I was told that some abnormalities appeared. I was a bit shaken, and they left an automated message (seems a bit cold, doesn't it?), so I can't remember exactly what they said. But they said something about "uncertain significane," "atypical," and the possibility of "HPV". But this seems very odd to me, as I have always been very cautious with my sexual activity, and have been with my fiancee for five years. Also, up until this point, my pap smear always came back clear.
So I'm wondering if there are any other reasons as to why this would come back with these results? My period was a little later than usual, and I had only just finished before the day of my appointment. Could that have made an impact? I had also forgotten about the fact that I needed to stear clear from the bathtub and not use any lotions. Could these also have been a factor?
What should I do?
Thank you so much in advance!
