I have HPV too. I was so scared when I found out and I just remember crying and crying. It really hasn't been that bad though. I have had abnormal cells off and on since I found out, about 4 years ago. When I was pregnant with my daughter I had a normal pap. Then when I went in for my 6 week check up after she was born I had abnormal cells. They did a colposcopy which turned out fine and I just had to go back 6 months later, which was in October, and my pap was normal again. It really is pretty common and in my opinion it is totally managable as long as you keep up with your paps. Don't worry, everything will be ok.
Waiting, not so patiently, to meet our new addition this October
