Cervix Irritation - diagnosed initially as HPV

Hi all,
I am new here, so if this topic is discussed and I missed it during my search, please steer me in the right direction. I went to have an IUD put in by my obgyn and she ended up doing biopsies for what she was fairly certain was HPV. She didn't put the IUD in at that time because my cervix was horribly irritated and bleeding at minimal touch. She ran tests and they all came back negative for HPV and my Pap was regular. So, we began trying to figure out what could be irritating my cervix to the point of lesions and bleeding. The only item that frequents those parts these days is my Diva Cup. I have used this brand since 2006 and have never had problems. The thought of switching back to tampons was almost as bad (if not worse) as having HPV.

Has anyone experienced similar diagnosis, or irritations. Have you found anything that has allowed your cervix to heal and still use a cup? I really dread using tampons after such a long run without them, and can't honestly imagine they irritate less, but am willing to give it a shot if thats what the doc orders.

Thanks for your help in advance!
