Good News--Normal PAP

My January PAP smear came back normal. It hasn't been normal for 3 years. I have a strain of the HPV virus that can lead to cervical cancer, and we've been monitoring this situation every 4 months for the 3 years. We still need to monitor every 4 months until I get 3 normal PAPs, then I go back to annuals.

Do you suppose the chemo might have done it? I finished chemo in maybe late July, had an abnormal PAP in September, but now this normal.

One less DR to poke and prod me every 3 or 4 months would be great!!
