[[p]]My name is Amanda.[[p]]For many years, I’ve been taking Pap smears regularly, and they alwaysreturn positive. I’ve never had complications, until recently. In 2014, when Ivisited the gynecologist for my yearly checkup, the attending clerk gave me apamphlet that explained that <strong>HPV is one of the causes of cervicalcancer</strong>, and that you can now diagnose the existence of the virus usinga Pap smear, just as it has been performed until today. I was happy to performthe new test, and increase my odds for early detection. The test was no moredifficult than the Pap smears I was used to, and didn’t require anythingdifferent from me. Both me and the doctor were surprised by the results. Thetest was negative for cancerous cells in the cervix, but positive for theexistence of HPV. The doctor explained that the virus usually disappears on itsown, and that there’s nothing to worry about. He recommended I returned a fewmonths later to get myself checked again; see if the virus was still around. WhenI saw the doctor again, the Pap smear was abnormal. The test showed that thePapilloma was still alive and kicking. Obviously I was quite stressed.[[p]]The doctor performed an examination of the cervix under a microscope, andtook a biopsy that showed that I was harboring “<strong>precancerous cells</strong>.[[p]]Immediately following this news, I underwent treatment with Cervugid Ovules[[span style=""]] recommended by my obgyn. First I took 3 boxesof Cervugid Ovules with break between them 7 days and after 6 months another 3boxes. This treatment is designed to treat Cervical HPV and many vaginalinfections.[[span style="background: white none repeat scroll 0% 0%; -moz-background-clip: border; -moz-background-origin: padding; -moz-background-inline-policy: continuous;"]] My next visit to obgyn resulted in anegative lab result for Cervical HPV after doing this treatment with CervugidOvules.<span style=""]] </span>Now I am free of cervicalHPV infection.[[p]]I feel lucky for catching the disease in my cervix at such an early point.And that I didn’t have to perform and complicated surgery. I could continue mynormal life with the family. I am also grateful to my doctor for checking mefor HPV, because otherwise I wouldn’t have returned to him, meaning the cellsmay have had time to become cancer until my next appointment.[[p]]Ever since, I talk to all my friends and family about the importance ofthese tests. The Pap smear test is a veteran examination, but sometimes it’snot enough. They save my life, and they can save yours.
