Welcome to HCM
Was it genital warts at the time of diagnosis? Have you received treatment for it? Chances of recurrence is high within 3 months after treatment. However pregnancy can be a factor causing recurrence, if viruses were not killed completely. PAP smear can only tell whether there is any change towards cancer. Human papilloma virus cannot be seen on PAP smear. Visit your obstetrician for diagnosis and management.
All the best.
