If you have had high grade Pap smears and have been treated for them with a biopsy, you are eligible for free HPV testing to see when your body has cleared the HPV. Once you've cleared it and it's no longer in your body you can go back to 2 yearly screening.

    Once you clear one sort of HPV there's nothing stopping you picking up another strain, there are hundreds.
    I was always told that it would remain forever- wow. I will be asking my GP for testing!

    I did know there were many strains, hence why I had the Gardasil injections even though I already had some form of the virus.
