Here's links to several threads about HPV (human papilloma virus), colposcopies (a simple proceedure often done following an abnormal pap test), and bioposies (sample taken of cervical cells). The thing to remember if you're new to any of this....is not to panic and worry. HPV and abnormal pap tests are generally not serious conditions and colposcopies and bioposies are done to determine if more treatment is needed. HPV A good discussion on the proceedures and HPV. Good facts. Colposcopy/Bioposy Another excellent discussion. More good facts. LGSIL -- coposcopy/bioposy More discussion. Colposcopy A short thread on the proceedure.
