“Although it sounds like an STD and I should freak the F out, I know this is somewhat common and not to be overly worried about. I was scheduled to have a colposcopy just to take a better look at the skin cells in my vagina. Also, not really a big deal if the doctor doesn’t see dysplasia… if she does then it could be a sign of early cancer.”

It wasn't an early sign of cancer—but the colposcopy revealed something. The doc did see dysplasia and told Otis that because she’s pregnant (17 weeks), they won’t perform a biopsy until after she’s given birth. (A colposcopy is a magnifying device that helps a doctor see the cervix, and if something looks abnormal, a biopsy is typically done, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.)

If you’re thinking, Um, I thought HPV is an STD, you’re right. In fact, it’s the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States, per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

There are two classifications of HPV, Christine Greves, MD, an ob-gyn at Orlando Health in Florida, tells Health. One is a low-risk type that causes genital warts, and the other is higher-risk and can lead to precancer and cancer. Otis doesn't get into too much detail, but presumably she was diagnosed with a higher-risk type of HPV.

So where does dysplasia come in? “Cervical dysplasia is a precancerous condition, which is usually detected from an abnormal Pap test and tissue evaluation via a colposcopy,” explains Dr. Greves.

The treatment for cervical dysplasia depends on how severe it is. “There are different degrees of it,” says Dr. Greves. “More severe cases may require an excisional procedure, such as a LEEP (loop electrosurgical excision procedure) or a cone biopsy, which removes the superficial cells that are affected by dysplasia from the cervix.”

Removing the precancerous cells prevents cervical cancer, according to Planned Parenthood. If cervical dysplasia is at a less severe level, doctors might opt for a watch and wait approach, since the condition can clear up on its own without medical intervention.

On her vlog, Otis said she was “putting positive vibes out there that there’s no issue,” and asked her fans to do the same. “If you want to throw a prayer out for me, I wouldn’t hate that,” she said. “I would actually really appreciate it.”
