where to get low risk HPV test for female? What are the chance i have it?

by Rachel on September 6, 2011

I got an abnormal pap smear (low-grade something). I then did repeated pap smear tests two times and biopsy one time after I got the abnormal pap results. They all came back normal. I did high-risk HPV DNA tests three times. They came back negative. I asked three doctors checked and they said no warts. I asked for low risk HPV virus test. Two doctors told me there is no commercially available way to test low-risk virus without warts. One doctor told me they could but I do not need the test (so they did not test on me ) even I asked. Now my main concern is about low-risk. I know low risk would not bring much health problem but I need to let my partner know if I have low-risks. So I want to figure out the chance that I have low-risk HPV. Can anyone help me on this? Or how can I get a low-risk HPV virus test without warts?

Thanks a lot!

scuze me but if all these doctors who have seen you cant tell u anything, why would u think someone on YA -who the majority of have probably never even seen a medical school- would be able to give u a better answer? i hope this helped.

well since 1out of 2 females have this condition, i would say 50/50 now for a more acurate result: ask alot of different girls how many guys they have slept with, average the figures out. now think about how many you have slept with and if you go over the average,chances are u have it, if you are under theres a good chance you do not. there are some variables that you just cant factor in and you will have to use ur judgment like how many girls have the guys u slept with, slept with and if they would bang any thing with a puss. if ur the type to sleep with every man whore that comes ur way or that u hear is good than this is a disese u have or no doubt will aquire. this is about is good as u will get w/o a phd. happy f##king.

Both low risk and high risk HPV types can cause abnormal cell changes of the cervix. Low risk HPV types do seem to regress faster than high risk HPV types.

Once our body has built a natural immunity to our HPV types they will not show in any test. There is no way to go back and find out if your past low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion was due to a high risk or a low risk HPV type. Most of us carry multiple HPV types so we can carry both low risk and high risk HPV types.

There is not a commercial screening test for low or high risk HPV types of the vulva. We can have both low risk and high risk HPV of the vulva without warts. Visible genital warts of the vulva may not show cell changes of the cervix.

The makers of our HPV test does have a HPV test that combines both low risk and high risk HPV type screening of the sample take of our cervix. Insurance may not always pay for the low risk combination screening test.
