HPV is extremely common, I think about 80% of the population will get it and the majority of them won't know because it's usually asymptomatic. I am sorry you got that news and it freaked you out, I had it about 5 years ago and it upset me and freaked me out as well. My doctor had me get the vaccinations and I haven't had any problems since. As long as you are having regular check ups there really isn't anything to get yourself worked up about. They will probably want to give you another Pap in 6 months (yes, you have to wait that long) because if you have them too frequently you can build up scar tissue. Just have everyone get checked out and relax, stress won't help you either. It's really not a big deal.
