Thanks for the question. Pap smear test is done to detect presence of cancerous or precancerous cells in cervix. This is done because some types of HPV infections are the reason behind cervical cancer. Doing a pap smear test helps in ruling out a possibility of cervical cancer. Identifying a possibility of cervical cancer will help in preventing it at the earliest. But in your case, there are no symptoms or chances of cancerous cells in cervix. But it is advised to perform the test frequently to rule out a possibility, according to the suggestion of your doctor. In HPV test, a DNA test is conducted to detect the presence of HPV or Human Papilloma Virus in body cells. It is also done using the cells found in cervix. Presence of HPV and absence of cancerous cells means you are affected with that type of HPV which results in the formation of genital warts and not cervical cancer. So, it is unlikely that you should develop cervical cancer in future, but chances of getting genital warts remains. It is recommended to do pap smear tests frequently for the following two years to prevent the spread and reach of virus, in a timely manner. The ideal time frame for a retest is 6 months from now. If the viral infection is seen prominent in the successive years, necessary medical support should be sought. Anyway, HPV infections cannot be cured completely, but can be treated symptomatically. Hope my answer helps. Take care.
