Recommendations and Conclusions

The following recommendations are based on good and consistent scientific evidence.

  • For women with ASC-US cytology test results, reflex HPV testing is preferred.
  • For women with HPV-positive ASC-US, whether from reflex HPV testing or co-testing, colposcopy is recommended.
  • For women with LSIL cytology test results and no HPV test or a positive HPV test result, colposcopy is recommended.
  • For women with a histologic diagnosis of CIN 2, CIN 3, or CIN 2,3 and adequate colposcopic exami- nation, both excision and ablation are acceptable treatment modalities, except in pregnant women and young women.
