Chances of having/getting cervical cancer

+2 votes
Hello. This is a very personal question related to sexual health.   I am a 19 (nearly 20 year old woman) who was somewhere between 7-9 years old when I was sexually abused. I was penetrated twice but he ejaculated neither time, as far as I can remember. He also made me participate in oral sex about 3-4 times (receiving) and once giving.   I'm convinced the incident is the cause of my OCD and hypochondria. I would like to know whether or not I should go and get a pap test done. I'm terrified that I might have contracted a high risk HPV type such as 16 or 18. What are the chances of me carrying one of these high risk diseases given the fact that a rough 10-13 years have passed and I've had no symptoms? I had itchiness in my vagina once in a while as a pre-adolescent and warts on my toes however.    The rapist was a friend of the family and mum tells me he wasn't carrying anything but I'm not sure if she'd know.   This had had me worried for years now so I thought I should finally get it off my chest and ask.
