I've been married for five years and I've only ever been with one man sexually.. my husband. I guess because of this, I naively thought that I was not at risk for any STDs. However, recently a pap smear came back positive for mild dysplasia (CIN1) and the HPV test came back positive for high-risk HPV (18 & 58 ).

I was completely shocked as I was told that HPV was transmitted sexually so I requested a STD test as well just in case and to my absolute horror, it came back negative for HSV-1 but positive for HSV-2. (IgG reactive at 4.96).

I have absolutely NO IDEA that I was infected with so many things as I have had absolutely no symptoms of anything. No pain. No itching. No redness. No sores. Nothing.

Neither has my husband.

I'm kinda feeling quite stigmatized now and absolutely worried because it really seems I am at an extraordinarily high risk of coming down with cervical cancer. :cry:

Hello, good thing that you get yearly pap smears. This ensures for the most part that your cells do not become abnormal and progress to full blown cancer. If they do become abnormal there are ways to remove those cells like the leep procedure. So as long as you get your yearly pap smears, you should be okay. Be as healthy as possible. A high percentage of woman who are sexually active have hpv so you are not alone. As far as having herpes goes about 40% or more of people do not have any symptoms and do not know they are carriers of the virus until they get tested.
