HPV in Women
HPV in Women With Normal Pap ResultsA woman can have HPV but still have a normal Pap test. Changes on the cervix may not appear right away, or they may never appear.
For women over the age of 30 who get an HPV test and a Pap test, a negative result on both the Pap and HPV tests means that no cervical changes or HPV were found on the cervix. This is great news, because it means there is an extremely low chance of developing cervical cancer in the next few years.
