There is a new study that states that women who carry the high risk hpv virus (cervical dysplasia/cancer) and have been taking the pill for over 5 yrs are twice as likely to have reocurring problems with dysplasia. Alot of women carry the virus and do not have dysplasia, because it can lay dormant in your body for years. The pill and hpv is not a healthy combo and can lead to problems. Women who have been on the pill for 10 yrs or more are 4 times more likely to have dysplasia also. Something about the pill makes the dyspalsia grow rapidly. I was on the pill for 10 yrs and I had moderate dysplasia which I had surgery for. After finding out this new info, I stopped talking the pill all together and since then all my paps have come back normal. I will post the link of the arcticles stating these findings if anyone is interested.
