Hello, I just received my results from my pap smear

Hello, I just received my results from my pap smear and I have epithelial cell abnormalities and atypical glandular cells. What is my next step? Should I be worried about cancer? What could cause this? If it's not cancer, what would be the treatment?

Hello. I received (for the first time) an abnormal pap smear result. My gynecologist has decided to have my specimen tested for HPV. Since I have been married for two years and was not sexually active for several years prior to my marriage to my husband (same for him) I did some research. I know HPV can be dormant for years, but I also remembered that I am pretty sure my husband and I have intercourse the night before the pap smear (I m not 100% but I am pretty sure). If that s the case, could the fact that we may have had intercourse less that 24 hours prior to my test, would that cause the cells to look abnormal?
