Hi - my wife has a lot of irregular cervix cells and will likely do LEED. Should I get the HPV vaccine? I have had genital warts on/off for a year
Bit late for that: The vaccine has no value in treating HPV.Once you have a strain of HPV it is with you for life. You both may share several. The vaccine could protect you both from a few new strains, but if you are in a monogamous relationship I wouldn't bother. The approved age range is 9-26, which is the only group insurers will pay for. Your out of pocket cost would run >$200/dose for 3 dose set. ...Read more

Confirm diagnosis: HPV is the only cause of warts, at any age. But make sure a health professional has confirmed the diagnosis. Most self diagnosed "tiny" warts are not warts at all. HPV usually is cleared entirely by the immune system. DNA may persist, but uncommonly reactivates to cause disease or transmission to partners. Also see my reply to your other question. ...Read more

I read in the Men’s Health that it’s wise to get the HPV vaccine as a male 26 or under. I’m going to be 27 in less than 2 months. Is it too late?
Not too late: A person can discuss with his doctor about his level of risk and whether or not the vaccine would make good sense to get. Usually, if a person is having new contacts (HPV is usually caught via physical contact of the genitals or the mouth), the vaccine is a good idea. Above age 26 years, insurance companies in the US might not pay for it (vaccine becomes a self-pay item). ...Read more
