Can Women Give Men Hpv
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
Not a whole lot:
Men gave the HPV to women in the 1st place.
Then oral sex is a way for men to get it back
young people of both sexes up to age 20 need to get vaccinated against HPV.
older or those who already have it, vaccine is not helpful
so avoid oral sex or use condoms is the only answer for your question.
hope this helps ...Read more
Yes: Men and women pass hpv back and forth. Typically for men it's not serious (they don't test for it in men). The more partners one has, the increased risk for cancers of the penis and the cervix (though penile cancer is very rare). The biggest threat from hpv is to the woman. Always use condoms and that will help prevent the transmission, not 100%, but significantly. Pap smears help detect hpv. ...Read more
If a woman with high risk HPV -cerivcal dsyplasma gives a man oral job only is it transmitt able or not.
Depends: HPV is a site specific invader. If she has HPV in her oral cavity it could be transferred to your penis during oral sex. If not, you would acquire it on your penis through vaginal sex. (If that is where she has it.) It does not travel in her blood to her oral cavity but could get there from oral on an infected person. ...Read more
Can a woman with HPV cervical cancer gives a man oral sex is it transmitt able. And she had her cancer removed. Her pap test is normal.
Many have no Sx: Hpv can pass from one to another with no symptoms at all. Some strains will persist in the body for decades & only be recognized when cell changes on a pap smear suggest precancerous growth. Some strains will produce skin bumps that can grow into wart like growths on the genitals (male or female) & spread over time. ...Read more
Two issues: First, am not sure that your assumption that hpv clears more readily in men than women is necessarily correct, but assuming for the sake of argument that it is, it may be related to hormonal influences, and to the fact that detection in women may require invasive examination. ...Read more
Depends on strain: Hpv is a family with >50 known strains at this point. Four strains seem to dominate the harm inflicted on humans, 2 more internal & 2 external. External strains produce wart like growths on genitals that may start as tiny bumps & grow to inch sized clusters or more. Internal strains may be carried unrecognized for 20+ years before causing cancer.Infected parties give it to uninfected, m=f. ...Read more
With women, it's possible for HPV to leave the body. How about men? Is it possible too? Can they be cured for good?
Unlikely if ever: Most of any outward signs of an HPV infection will eventually subside in people with a normal immune system. However, this is a family of virus strains that tend to persist in a hibernation like state indefinitely. People may shed the virus intermittantly, but seldom know when they are. ...Read more
Hi. Can a women or a men develop HPV without sexual contact. If the couple has it does it mean that one of the two slept with someone else who has it?
HPV transmission: Although HPV is mainly considered a sexually transmitted disease, there is some evidence of some transmission during exposure during rough play such as wrestling or contact sports. This is one of the reasons the Gardasil vaccine for HPV prevention is administered to boys and girls as early as 11 years of age. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Can men be treated to get rid of of HPV like women do? How? What treatment should they go through? What needs to be done? Surgery?!
Can the hpv procervic (genticel) can be used in men as for women as the therapeutic vaccine once if its clinically approved? And when willit be approved
Pending approval: GTL001 (ProCervix) clinical trials are still underway and it looks as if the trials are only available to women. I would imagine if the trials go well, that it would eventually be tested and offered to men. Women are at risk for cervical cancer and thus it makes sense at this point to test and administer the vaccine to women first. ...Read more
How is HPV harmful to men? For women it's cervical cancer. What about men? Does it cause cancer to them too? If so, what's the treatment to them?
2 Common Cancers: HPV has been associated with cancer of the penis. It is also the third major factor (after tobacco use & alcohol use) for oral cancer in men & women. When combined with tobacco and/or alcohol use & abuse, those with HPV have a much poorer outcome from treatment for oral cancer ...Read more
Jumping Conclusions: There are more cases of throat cancer in men. Hpv is one of the causes of throat cancer. Does not mean there are more hpv induced throat cancer in men. Additional causes (some may make hpv induced more likely) include smoking, alcohol, poor oral hygiene, chronic inflammation, smokeless tobacco, etc., all more likely in men. Further studies need to be done to determine if hpv is the main cause. ...Read more
HPV is in all of us: Hpv is transmitted skin to skin and semen to skin. It is thought that americans are exposed to one of the numerous strains of this virus by the time we are 26. There is a vaccine to prevent the four strains of hpv that can cause cancer 95% of the time. This is known as gardisil. There is some evidence that gardisil also provides some protection against other hpv strains. ...Read more
Can HPV be passed by kissing? Or a male giving oral for a female? If yes can HPV go away on its own?
It's not treatable: Excellent question, and subtle. The man's hpv usually doesn't produce a lesion that can be excised, and the hpv itself cannot be removed from either partner -- just the precancer / cancer. Once you have met a particular strain of hpv, it's there for life. This is in contrast to chlamydia and trichomonas, in which it's good to treat both partners in a current relationship at the same time. ...Read more
Not necessarily: Unfortunately hpv in a woman can often be present without the women knowing it. Genital warts are usually painless, so you often don't have any symptoms from them. Furthermore in women it is difficult to actually see everywhere that the warts might be. On a related note if you're known to have hpv, don't forget about regular pap smears! ...Read more
If a man has oral sex with I female that has HPV and warts. And has oral with another female can the other female catch HPV and warts?
What are the chances of getting oral warts /hpv from giving oral sex to a female? Many of the docs on here have given me polarized opinions about this
HPV: There is no right answer to almost any question about hpv yet. I would say that oral sex performed on a female is of low risk. But, that does not in any necessary way mean you are not already hpv infected. 96% of americans have been exposed to hpv by age 26. Hpv is transmitted skin to skin. ...Read more
If the man is performing oral sex on the woman and she has HPV cervical dsyplasia is it more transmitt able to him then her performing oral sex on him?
Yes: Hpv is a family of viruses that live in the cells of mucosal tissue, like that of a woman's cervix or the back or a person's throat. It is the fastest growing std and is probably the reason why young males are the fastest growing group of cancer victims-oral. While oral sex and kissing may transmit the virus, it may not manifest as cancer & can spread it thru sexual activity. Get the vaccine! ...Read more
