HPV and breast implants?
- 3 years ago
While in the process of trying to go for a breast augmentation, my gynecologist had called me in his office to tell me that I have HPV. Although he tried to comfort me, telling me that it was no big deal and is actually very common, I couldn't seem to shake the way it make me feel - disgusted with myself, ashamed, depressed... I just don't know how this could of happened being that I have only been with one person sexually, who happens to be my boyfriend of 10 years. My doctors reassured me not to worry and told me that in my case, I had no strains of cancer, which is great, (so I guess that would mean I am low risk HPV?) I have to go back for a colposcopy and possible biopsy...I am absolutely terrified. I decided to go in for a breast augmentation consultation anyway, just to try and ease my mind from all the worry. It definitely gave me something else to think about. Although I did not speak with my PS about my HPV, my gynecologist is aware that I had went for a consultation and did not say there was any reason why I could not consider implants. Is there anyone who has had this similar situation? I truly feel all alone, as I can't bring myself to confide in anyone about this other than my doctor..
