Amy Hart fears for life after testing positive for HPV

During an Instagram Q&A, Amy Hart who appeared on Love Island 2019, has shared with fans her HPV diagnosis.

The 29-year-old took to her social media to share with followers her journey with HPV as she has recently been diagnosed with the potentially fatal disease.

'80% of men and women in their lifetime will get HPV'

The former Islanders admitted to feeling 'dirty and negative' upon receiving the news about her diagnosis but quickly decided to do more research on the matter. She explained deciding to open up about HPV to raise awareness as more people than expected carry the disease with them without even knowing about it. She said:

I had a smear last year. It came back with HPV. They said come back in a year so I went back today. She said the results will be in two weeks. Of HPV is there they'll look at my cells and do a biopsy on the cells so that's where I am at the moment.

Before adding:

I did my research and found that 80 per cent of men and women in their lifetimes will get HPV. It's virus. It's quite normal apparently.

Life before HPV

Hart is no stranger to reproductive health scares as she has shared in the past having to deal with a 'very, very high tilted cervix' and early menopause which led her to ultimately freeze her eggs. The blonde beauty explained that her decision was also a way to empower herself by being able to choose when and how to become a mother. She said:

A lot of people asked why I did it again even though I met Sam but you never know what's going to happen. I like to be in control of my own life. It might end in two years' time and I know I've got that back-up. Also I might need to use those eggs with him, you never know.
