Hi, welcome to HCM.
Firstly, I would request to do Pap test from a referral institute. Because in your report, Bethesda system of reporting is not followed properly.
From the given report, it can be said that there is inflammatory changes which are non specific of any particular infection. It may be due to altered vaginal flora.
It is benign changes. But there is presence of metaplastic squamous cells for which you have to be followed up every 6 moths.
