Handling Must Be Done On Patients With HPV Stage 1?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Do you mean by HPV stage 1 is Papanicolaou class 1 or CIN (Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia) 1?
PAP smears will only show Papanicolaou classifications (class 1 to class 5), with class 1 showing normal results or also called Negative for Intraepithelial Lesion or Malignancy (NILM). In this case, if you are between 21-29 years old, then you only need to repeat the PAP smear every 3 years. If you are 30-65 years old, you can choose between having a PAP smear every 3 years, or doing a PAP smear and HPV examination every 5 years.
CIN results can only be obtained if indeed a cervical biopsy has been performed. The results of CIN 1 indicate low grade lesions (either because of low risk HPV or high risk HPV). Follow-up for women found to have CIN 1 depends on previous cytology (PAP smear) results, whether low-grade cytology results (ASC-US or LSIL) or high-grade cytology results (ASC-H or HSIL). If the results of cytology show low degree changes only, then only observation is required and no treatment is needed unless CIN 1 persists for 2 years or more. If the results of cytology show changes in high degrees, then you can be given the choice between making observations in advance or directly doing therapy. In most women, CIN 1 will return to normal within a few months, so it is advisable to have a repeat examination 6 or 12 months later.
Basically there is nothing you can do to speed up the healing process of this disease journey, there is no recommended supplement either, but of course you are advised not to have unhealthy sexual relations and always use condoms during sexual intercourse. Take control of the doctor who examined you according to the schedule given.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
