Can Immune System Kill Hpv
Primary/long term: Primary clearance usually occurs within 2-3 years. However, this family of viruses is well known to have the ability to hibernate in your tissues for your lifetime. You can have recurrent warts (if that is your strain) or the cancer associated strains could trigger changes decades later. You may also shed active virus intermittently. ...Read more
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
Yes and NO: Yes the immune system will clear HPV in of 90% of people. And no, for that 90% it is not lifelong. The other 10% are the ones that are at increased risk for HPV related dysplasia / cancer - many of that 10% will be able to clear the infection with treatment using immune system modulating medications. ...Read more
What to do if I read that the immune system can rid the body of HPV on its own, how long does that take?
Why do some people "clear/suppress" pre-cancerous HPV while others do not? Is their immune system stronger/healthier?
We don't know: I do hpv research (looking at the specific parts of the immune system and their responce to hpv) and the truth is no one knows why some people clear/suppress the virus while others don't. Regarding cervical dysplagia CIN 1 (lsil) approximately 1/3 of women have a future pap smear that is normal, 1/3 keep the cin1 (lsil), and 1/3 progress to cin2 (hsil). ...Read more
If HPV is possitive for two couple can the immune system clear it of or it makes it harder because they are sharing hpv?
Its a virus: HPV is a virus & in asymptomatic people, it can go unrecognized. Treatment is geared toward the symptoms (genital warts or cervical cancer) when present but not for the virus itself. Like any virus, it clears up on its own; however, recurrent exposure increases the chances of developing symptoms over time. ...Read more
No: But it can make it more likely to be dormant and less of an issue. ...Read more
Not logical: Ra is a condition in which the immune system is hyperactive and attacks your own body. Treatment for this usually involves medication that supresses the immune system. You should hook up with a good rheumatologist and get on a proper regiment to avoid the complications of ra. ...Read more
It's interesting that you ask: just to double check myself I checked the cdc. Gov and the webmed. Com websites and did not find an answer.
http://www. Cdc. Gov/std/hpv/stdfact-hpv-and-men. Htm
sciencenews. Org did provide an answer: the median clearance time is 7.5 months, but it can take up to 24 months (based on a study). It is probably a good idea to give it 3 years, before assuming to be free. ...Read more
Stop smoking: We don't know the best way to help your body clear an hpv infection--aside from getting the hpv vaccine (gardasil) and not smoking. I encourage patients to eat dark green, leafy vegetables and brightly colored fruits and veggies--they are usually higher in anti-oxidant levels. Smoking definitely hinders your ability to fight an hpv infection. ...Read more
Yes: In young women at age 21, this is almost always what happens. It's just a very small percentage of woman who become chronic carriers for the virus. One of the most important factors is smoking so quit if you smoke. Eat a diet high in fresh fruits & vegetables. Usually the virus will be gone within 3 years but in many women much faster, even as quickly as 3 months. ...Read more
Since they say HPV can clear most people affected...I am young with a steong immune system why was the virus not fought off?
Confused??: The primary infection of any of the dozens of HPV strains can clear in most people because their immune system does fight it, but the germ is not gone, it just moves into hibernation. That strain may never reactivate, but it may. Those strains associated with cervical cancer can wait decades before eventually triggering pre-cancerous changes. ...Read more

Proper diet, proper sleep- wake cycles, healthy environment, proper exercise are the foundation of good health and good immune health. Supplements should be used selectively to supplement a healthy diet. ...Read more
Here are some. ..: Cryo is to destroy or de-naturalize the cells within a lesion such as tumors with liquid argon or warts with liquid nitrogen. After such procedure, the targeted tissues are so destroyed or de-naturalized to become not good enough to act as an agent to incite immune response. So, I doubt cyro will do what you asked. Nonetheless, behind what we know always still hides a lot of what we don't know. ...Read more
How is it that immune system can get rid of HPV in body and can't for Herpes? Isn't HPV more harmful and complex than Herpes? What's the difference?
Good question: The body's defense systems combats infection to eradicate from the human body, a complex interaction between the host (the body) and the invading orgsnism usually is the case, in case of Herpes, the virus remains dormant, undetected by the immne system radar in some cells and some nerve roots, once body resistance wanes for a reason or another it flares up until the body fights it back ...Read more
What's the best food for immune system? Will supplements help boost it too? I want to boost mine to fight HPV asap. I want to be HPV free soon. How??
Not proven effective: Many "non-medical" supplements, foods, herbs, and techniques are claimed to "boost" the immune system, but none have been proven effective. The immune system is complex, and "boosting" it to make it act stronger is not always a good thing. In conditions like arthritis, thyroid disease, diabetes type 1, lupus, eczema, etc..., the immune system is over-acting and damaging the patient's own organs. ...Read more
When I have cold, cough or flu (any disease), will my immune system be busy fighting it & hence slow on fighting HPV? Will being sick affect that? Thnx
Immunocompetent: By being immunocompetent your immune system can fight several diseases at different fronts at the same time, immunity does wax and wane, so it isn't in a steady state, your best bet to stay healthy, and stay immunocompetent: sleep well, exercise regularly, fresh air, lots of fruits and vegetables, goodluck ...Read more
I know that HPV can leave the body in few years with immune system. What STDs also can leave the body & what doesn't? And why if possible??
It's complicated...: Even without treatment, some STDs are cleared in a few weeks or months, such as gonorrhea and chlamydia. But they still need treatment; they can leave a lot of damage if not treated. HPV is cleared, but it usually takes 1-2 years, and HPV DNA persists and infection can reappear. STDs that last indefinitely include syphilis, herpes, hepatitis B, HIV. The biological reasons are complex. ...Read more
Tested positive for hpv RNA rather than DNA, does that mean my immune system will not be able to clear the virus? Normal cytology...
No difference: That test makes no difference. Your immune system will clear the infection normally. ...Read more
If I clear high risk hpv, what can it do to me when I'm old, like 70 or more, and my immune system isn't as good as it is now? Does it mean cancer?
Regular followup: That you have cleared a high risk strain of hpv for now is a good thing. However, once you have it it could return at any tome. Regular followup exams and testing by your doc will be your best plan. Hopefully, it will never produce cancer, but it certainly could at some point. ...Read more
If I have unprotected sex with a wart will my partner get warts if he doesn't have them or will he just get hpv. Is it based off of his immune system?
Received colposcopy HPV test. CIN 1 with focal koilocytic change. Do I need surgery? Or my immune system will take care of it? Is it fatal?
If you were diagnosed with HPV in your 20's and still have cancer causing HPV in 30's and abnormal paps does this mean you have a weak immune system?
To some extent: The immune system is responsible for clearing infections from the body, including hpv. If you had hov in your 20's, it may have been cleared and your current problem is a new infection. If your body has not cleared the hpv you had in your 20's, then your immune system may lack the ability to eradicate that particular infection. If that is the case, then your risk for cervical cancer is higher. ...Read more
