Colposcopy is recommended for those pregnant women with LGSIL who are 20 years old or less (adolescents).
Because the prevalence of HPV in women with LGSIL declines with age, management of postmenopausal women with LGSIL can be less aggressive.
The study's primary efficacy end point was full resolution of LGSIL on a later Pap smear.
The rate of spontaneous resolution of LGSIL was low among the women in the study, in contrast to what usually occurs in routine practice.
Follow-up colposcopies performed post partum indicated no change in the grade of lesions among 63% of the patients with HGSILs, 64% of patients with LGSILs
, and 76% of the patients with ASCUS.

The descriptor ASCUS refers to cells that are more abnormal than cells seen in reactive or inflammatory lesions, but do not fulfill all the criteria for LGSIL
or HGSIL (Figure 4).
