Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection. There are over 100 different types of HPV that causes warts in different areas of the body. HPV is incredibly common and almost all sexually active men and women get it during their lifetime. Most of the time HPV does not cause any symptoms or complications. However, A limited number of these HPV viruses are pathogenic and if not monitored carefully can be responsible for causing cervical and penile cancer. Some of these viruses have been ...Read more
My partner at one point was with both me & his ex. I've been diagnosed with HPV but just recently his ex was diagnosed with chlamydia. Is it possible?
STDs travel together: Yes, it is possible. Hpv and chlamydia are both very common sexually transmitted diseases. It is not at all uncommon for a person to have, carry, or contract more than one std at the same time. Anyone found to have one std should be tested for other stds. Both hpv and chlamydia can be present for long periods without symptoms. ...Read more
I would like to know if Chlamydia can come from HPV or If it is unrelated and transmitted sexually.
Went to the dr was told I had hpv an chlamydia but my sex partner was tested an didn't have any of it I was only active with him could my dr be wrong?
Doubt it: If you had the tests done, and the doc said they were positive, I would not assume they were wrong in your case. HPV can eventually lead to cancer and chlamydia, if untreated could make you sterile.Both can be symptom free in females for months or more. If the doc treated you without testing,you could be right, but I expect you got it from someone at some time. ...Read more
I was tested for chlamydia via a urine test which came back negative, however, if I was positive for HPV would that show in the urine test results?
Does HPV automatically mean cancer in the future? Is it a lifetime disease? What are other causes for an abnormal pap besides chlamydia?
Relationship complex: Hpv does not automatically mean cancer. The relationship between cancer formation & hpv infection is complex, as there are many subtypes of hpv: some carry a high risk of cancer, while others do not. Most hpv infections are lifelong, making vaccination an important part of the public health discussion. For a list of conditions that could result in an abnormal pap smear, see the link below. ...Read more
Was told by a dr I had low risk hpv gonorrhea and chlamydia but my sex partner doesn't have it , could she have been wrong ? I don't have symptoms
Could be true: The sad thing about all the STD's you mention is that a woman may have them for an extended period without symptoms. The gonorrhea and chlamydia could be present long enough to damage your tubes and reduce your fertility and you still never know. You could have carried all for quite a while. Condoms would decrease risk for your present partner. Get treated or accept the risk. ...Read more
Abnormal pap smear: Most abnormal pap smears are due to HPV, even if HPV itself doesn't show up on testing. There are exceptions, but only a minority are not from HPV. Whether or not other STDs like chlamydia or gonorrhea are present makes no difference. If you have had an abnormal pap smear, discuss it with your doctor and follow her advice about further testing, follow-up, etc. Good luck! ...Read more

Is salpingitis isthmica nodosa congenital? Never had chlamydia or gonorrhea, or infection. Did have hpv, could that cause it?
No: It is definitely not believed by experts to be congenital. No one knows with certainty what causes it, but most favor an infectious cause. None of the stis we see in the us causes it, there have been some cases associated with tubal tuberculosis - again, almost never seen in the us. ...Read more
How soon can I test for STDs after exposure? Chlamydia ghonorea HPV herpes etc exposure feb 8 testing feb 17 too soon!?
It's not too soon: The tests for chlamydia and gonorrhea (vaginal or urethral swab, or urine) are valid any time more than 2-3 das after exposure. Nine days (Feb 8 to 17) definitely isn't too soon. However, the blood tests for syphilis and HIV generally aren't valid until a few weeks after exposure. (But sometimes it's a good idea to have an early test as a baseline -- then a later test to see if it turns positive.) ...Read more
Had a Pap smear 3 weeks ago. HPV was negative, Pap smear was normal and gonorrhea and chlamydia came back negative. Trich still says pending 3 weeks later. Does a lab usually take that long? I was negative 6 months ago and have not switched partners.
Lab Trich result: Some labs do take an inordinate amount of time to give a report on Trichomonas, however, if your MD or you had those concerns a wet mount/prep could have been done at the initial examination to look for the organism under the microscope. The negative Trich result from 6 months ago has no bearing as there may have been many episodes of intercourse since then and all it takes is one outside contact. ...Read more
How soon can a pap smear detect a std? I had sex with a new partner, 3 days later i went for a pap smear, it came back positive for mild HPV with no symptoms, if this guy were to have given me a different STD such as chlamydia, would it appear so soon on
Depends: An std may show up on a pap result, but the pap is not intended to be a screen for std's. If there is concern for std exposure, then specific tests are warranted. ...Read more
Have general told her piece for two years and I just recently got diagnosed with chlamydia taking antibiotics wanted to know can chlamydia trigger general told herpes symptoms virus as well?
Confusing question: This is very confusing -- I can't tell for sure what you are asking. I don't know what you mean by "general"? Did you post this by voice dictation, like iPhone with "Siri"? Is "general told her piece" supposed to be "genital herpes"? Chlamydia isn't known to trigger herpes outbreaks, but I suppose it could happen. If you need more info, re-post a clearer question. ...Read more

See a doctor!: Guess what: Repeating the same question with different words won't get different answers. As discussed previously, chlamydia isn't known to trigger herpes outbeaks. And "burning sensation on my penis" is NOT a herpes symptom if there are no blisters or sores. Yeast infection is a possibilty. As advised previously, stop screwing around and see a doctor about it. ...Read more
