Hi Anon,

Like your doctor said, it could be that the virus is no longer active in the cervical tissue or that the biopsy that was taken missed where the abnormal cells are coming from. It is important for you to get follow up pap smears to make sure things are resolving. If you are over 30 years old, it is also recommended that you get tested for the HPV DNA, which is a more reliable way of determining if the virus is actively being expressed in your cervical tissue.

Take care of yourself and keep us posted.
