Question about hpv and colposcopy

Patient

Q: Last year I was told I have hpv. My test came back for low grade squamous cells. I was told to repeat a pap every six months and that its standard procedure to take further action after 2 years if it doesnt go away. I recently went to a new doctor and was told I have low grade squamous cells again and they want to do a colposcopy. Is it standard procedure to have a colpo for the same thing? From what I was told it hasnt gotten worse.
