    I was told I contracted hpv when I was 16yrs old and had absolutely no idea at the time what it was, and still not that educated about it, for urs fallowing I was told I had a high amount of pre cervical cancerous cells on my cervix.then when I went to go get a biopsy I was told due to new research I wouldn’t need one done till I reach the age of 25 because of how it can fight itself off. I was getting a pap test done every 6 month but now get them don’t every year because my last few test have not came back abnormal. So does thar mean its completely gone or should I get farther testing?
