Hello vandreadavis,
Thank you for writing in.
HPV is a sexually transmitted viral infection. Normally, before the age of 30 years, it resolves itself but if it doesn't by 1 year then some action is required especially since you show evidence of high risk HPV for cervical cancer.
I would suggest that you visit a Colposcopist in your area who can use highly magnified images to look at the cervix and in case any abnormal areas are found a biopsy may be taken. Simple cryo or freezing techniques can be used to destroy HPV infected areas.
The symptoms that you describe - discharge, heavy period, pain, painful sex indicate a pelvic infection and you will need appropriate antibiotics + antifungal + anti anaerobic bacterials; all under the supervision of your doctor. If its not very bad, this can be done on Out Patient basis. Sometimes it may require admission.
Very clearly you have an STD (sexually transmitted disease).
Sex has 2 consequences - pregnancy and infections. Birth control pills will protect you from a pregnancy but you simply MUST use additional condom for protection against STDs. In fact, a scientific study in Nigeria showed that when teenagers are taught to 'Say NO to sex' the chances of having STD and HIV/AIDS decreased.
May i suggest that you vist the specialist again to discuss these issues, get blood and other tests done and some treatment. Also discuss vaccination against Cancer Cervix.
Till you are completely alright, abstain from sex.
At this moment you DO NOT have cancer, probably only HPV (and other infections to be ruled out) which can be treated easily but let your fear guide you to more sensible decisions in the future.
All the best.
