I have been having regular yearly pap's for many years, and they always came back normal. However, three years ago, I received my first abnormal paps. The dr did a colposcopy and biopsy, which came back good. they told me however that I had HPV. And that it was something I would always have. I returned to the dr. 6 mos later and had more abnormal results, I guess due to the HPV> However my last 3 have came back normal.
Could this mean that I know longer have the HPV??

No, it just means that the effects of the HPV have been treated.
