Doctor please explain to me
I have ttc for 4 years with no luck until I decided to consult a FS and he did some scanning and a pap smear test,to my surprise the test were abnormal.I have hpv and that causes abnormal cells .I dont know what to do now as I was about to take fertility treatment.Anyone in this forum who had this problem before.

My last pap test was on 2004 and it was normal and before then I had 2 test and everything was normal.What could have gone wrong now?Does it mean that my husband is cheating on me.
We have been together for nine years and I never slept with anyone all these years except him.

Please advise what to do.

HPV can be dormant for many years before presenting with problems, so you may have had it for many years but it was asymptomatic.
