Yes Low grade squamous intraepithelial lesions are due to HPV. These low grade cell changes most often regress. Your doctor will monitor your cervix.

Low-grade Squamous Intraepithelial Lesion. Low-grade means there are early changes in the size and shape of the cells. The word lesion refers to an area of abnormal tissue. LSILs are considered mild abnormalities caused by HPV infection and are a common condition, especially among young women. The majority of LSILs return to normal over months to a few years.

Genital HPV types are most commonly shared through sex. Genital HPV types can be transmitted through hand to genital sex play and oral sex.

If you have not had sex…then abstinence will prevent the transmission of the virus. If you have already had sex he most probably shares your HPV type‚Ķeven if he does not show any signs or symptoms.
