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

Hiv and HPV conditions--should I include those in birds and bees talk?

Hiv and HPV conditions--should I include those in birds and bees talk?

Sure!: If you are talking with a younger child, they may not fully understand the consequences of these diseases so it may need to be re-addressed as your child gets older. I believe giving facts during these talks is always the best method. There is no reason not to discuss these things with your child as they most certainly do exist. They do have a right to know about these things! ...Read more

If you are HIV possitive will you be able to clear the hpv infection? Likely or unlikely?

If you are HIV possitive will you be able to clear the hpv infection? Likely or unlikely?

See below: Most HPV infections will spontaneously resolve/clear within a 2-3 year period as one's own immune system "gains the upper hand." Anything which impairs or weakens one's immune system can therefore delay or inhibit the ability to clear the HPV infection. Certainly, any acute, and especially chronic, illness or medical problem, such as HIV, depending on severity, would fall into this category. ...Read more

Is there a link between having HSV1 and HPV, and HIV? Tested negative for HIV 2 years ago, no new partners since and she tested negative a year ago.

Yes and no: Yes it is a STD and transmitted in a similar way. But no, It doesn't sneak in as a new infection just because you have the others. You must have contact with a HIV positive person to get it. If you have been negative for 2 years & no HIV contacts you would not have it. ...Read more

Can I get hpv, sti, hiv or any type of disease from some who is clean and they have the prof they are?

Be careful, friend!: Use barrier protection if you have to ask this question. Nobody is certifiably free of HPV -- there are dozens of strains including some that we don't test for that can give you at least warts. HIV testing is reliable except very early, but do you want to bet your life? Who's got proof-positive they didn't meet gonorrhea yesterday? Keep practicing good habits -- be a gentleman. ...Read more

Is HIV like HPV easily transmitted? No intercourse and without penetration even? I mean if outercourse frottage existed? Is it possible to be infected

HIV is hard to Get: No. Hiv is not caught skin to skin like hpv is. Hiv transmission requires direct infected body fluid to blood transmission. Your scenario has zero risk for HIV transmission. ...Read more

8 years. No symptoms, no HPV and normal cbc. Still a high risk for hiv?

8 years. No symptoms, no HPV and normal cbc. Still a high risk for hiv?

What are you asking?: Your risk for acquiring HIV depends on your behaviors -- unprotected risky sex, sharing needles. If you had a contact that you worry about eight years ago, it's time to clench your teeth, be very brave, and get tested if you've not been already -- your chance of being infected with a negative test is almost zero. If "no hpv" means "hiv-negative" then you're fine. To be brave, act brave. ...Read more

Can you get an STD (including HIV and HPV) from wearing used underwear?

STD transmission: If the used underwear has been washed, your risk or acquiring an STD would be extremely low. If unwashed and recently used, you would have a chance of getting HPV, HSV, and possibly others, if the other party had symptoms at time that they were wearing them. HIV would be very difficult to get in this manner though. ...Read more

I accidently used a toilet paper that had small red dots that looked like blood. Can hiv, hpv or Hcv spread through this?

No risk, no worries: I find it difficult to believe you found toilet paper that really had blood on it. But if that happened, there would be little or no risk for any of these infections. Don't worry about it. ...Read more

DO SKINNTAGS OR HPV WARTS INCREASE MY CHANCES OF HIV FROM HANDJOB? DON'T KNOW IF SHE HAD ANY CUTS OR FLUIDS ON HER HAND. TY MY LAST POST WAS NOT CLEAR.

DO SKINNTAGS OR HPV WARTS INCREASE MY CHANCES OF HIV FROM HANDJOB? DON'T KNOW IF SHE HAD ANY CUTS OR FLUIDS ON HER HAND. TY MY LAST POST WAS NOT CLEAR.

MAYBE: To get HIV, you need close contact with someone with the disease, and some access to their body fluids. It is more likely to pass in any activity where friction/minor trauma is involved. Certainly if the contact source has HPV warts, s/he may have another STD.Skin tags occur in the absence of a STD and have no relevance to this discussion. ...Read more

HPV=contact: HPV is a contact infection much like herpes: you get through skin contact with another skin that has active lesions (warts or sores). A woman who has cervical (genital) HPV lesions does not necessarily have oral lesions. If she does, you may get it via oral contact ...Read more

I m 25 male, I have HPV warts small, molluscum contagiosum and herpes outbreak together recently...I am scared too much. I got HIV test negative. Help?

See Your Doctor: It is good that you got tested for hiv, although it can take 6 weeks or more before you may show positive from a particular encounter. You need to be tested for other more common stds (gc, chlamydia, syphilis) and make sure the diagnosis of what you have is correct. Medication can shorten the symptoms of the herpes, treatment can resolve the molluscum, and help control the hpv. ...Read more

What's the worst STD ever recorded apart from HIV (aids)? And why? What's can be done to manage it then? I have HPV. Is it considered amongst the worst?

What's the worst STD ever recorded apart from HIV (aids)? And why? What's can be done to manage it then? I have HPV. Is it considered amongst the worst?

It's complicated: The bad strains of HPV used to kill millions of women yearly due to cancer of the cervix, and plenty of men with cancer of the penis. Today it's very manageable and you can expect only some modest inconvenience. Historically, the most brutal STD was syphilis before it was treatable. Gonorrhea still kills a few hundred people yearly. ...Read more

Bought used boxers from market. Scared of getting HIV, HPV&other STDs &diseases from dem. If I wash dem wid detergent&dettol, will it be safe to wear dem?

No risk: No chance. No STDs are ever transmitted by clothing, towels, toilet seats, etc. This sort of folklore disappeared almost a century ago. The only way you would ever be at risk is to have unprotected sex with infected partners. ...Read more

Can I do PCR test for HIV, Hepatitis, HPV 18, 16, 12 after 32 days of risk exposure? The Result will be accurate and reliable? Peace of mind?

Can I do PCR test for HIV, Hepatitis, HPV 18, 16, 12 after 32 days of risk exposure? The Result will be accurate and reliable? Peace of mind?

Yes and no: AT 32 days, you should not have a PCR test for HIV, only the standard antigen-antibody test (4th generation). It will be conclusive. Its too early for hepatitis, though; wait until 6 weeks (although hepatitis is so rare after any single exposure that most experts don't recommend testing at all). Don't waste money on HPV testing; it takes several months to show up, and everybody gets HPV anyway. ...Read more

Can I have sex again to have a child after 11 months of last exposure with multiple (-) HIV PCR and Combo? ; also (-) Syphilis, Hep A, B&C, Herpes & HPV

Can I have sex again to have a child after 11 months of last exposure with multiple (-) HIV PCR and Combo? ; also (-) Syphilis, Hep A, B&C, Herpes & HPV

Yes: If the nucleic acid tests were negative at 11 months after potential exposure, you are free of the infections and can try to have a baby.
Start taking pre-natal vitamins.
Wish you good health and a healthy baby.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

An elisa test (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay). You may also detect it by doing a test referred to as a western blot (a gel protein electrophoresis). Thirdly by pcr (polymerase chain reaction) which ...Read more
