How high of a chance is it with me becoming infertile, if I have both PID and hpv?

Cant quantify: The hpv is not related to fertility. It is related to precancerous cells of the cervix. Pid can cause tubal scarring which can block the tubes and cause infertility. That being said, most people with PID will not be infertile. The important thing now is to get treated and take your medication as prescribed. Then avoid putting yourself at risk to catch stds in the future. Use condoms always. ...Read more

How do I figure out my chances of being infertile? I was recently diagnosed this month with pcos. I also had a leep procedure done at age 15 for hpv

How do I figure out my chances of being infertile?  I was recently diagnosed this month with pcos. I also had a leep procedure done at age 15 for hpv

Difficult: There are tests that can be done to explain why someone does not conceive - but there are no tests that will tell if someone will be infertile. Pcos does impair fertility but that is treatable and the majority of women with pcos do in fact conceive. A leep procedure will not affect your fertility. ...Read more

If cervical HPV is negative can HPV be active else where I.e the anus? Previously had abnormal smear (treated) worried it's in my anus. Thanks

If cervical HPV is negative can HPV be active else where I.e the anus?  Previously had abnormal smear (treated) worried it's in my anus. Thanks

Anal pap available: Thank you Kayleigh, This is a great question. HPV can be found to be negative but still be present in small numbers that we can not detect. The numbers rise and fall with the strength of the immune system. The immune system is affected by everything that we do i.e. Stress, diet, period, or taking medication . Be concerned but remember that the same immune system is on duty everywhere! Anal pap. ...Read more

What are the chances of HPV human papillomavirus clearing on its own in someone's system (i.e a 27year old male) who has abstained for 7years since..?

What are the chances of HPV human papillomavirus clearing on its own in someone's system (i.e a 27year old male) who has abstained for 7years since..?

Good chance: There is about a 70-90% chance that the immune system can clear the virus. If he notices symptoms (genital warts), he probably still has the virus. Condoms will reduce the infection rate to his partner, but it is not 100%, since it is transmitted from skin to skin, even through oral sex. Having the partner be vaccinated (as long as they're under age 26), would also reduce transmission. ...Read more
