Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

The report means that you are not having any herpes virus but you are having the HPV virus. Currently, more than 120 different genotypes of HPV are known. High risk HPV are the ones that have the potential to turn malignant and HPV type 2 is high risk HPV.

After the delivery of your baby you need to get a repeat PAP smear and maybe a colposcopic biopsy of the lesion done.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
