Can you get HPV from a contaminated surgical instrument?

Can you get HPV from a contaminated surgical instrument?

Very Unlikely: We don't know the exact answer to your question, but i would say you are not at risk of getting hpv from an instrument used in surgery. The only exception i can think of is a vaginal retractor that was in contact with active hpv infection (warts) and then that retractor immediately coming in contact with you--contact with your hands probably would not put you at risk of getting hpv. ...Read more

During my tubal ligation, my ob/gyn used a surgical instrument that is contraindicated for tubal sterilization. Is that ok to do?

During my tubal ligation, my ob/gyn  used a surgical instrument that is contraindicated for tubal sterilization. Is that ok to do?

Get second opinion: this story sounds incorrect. tubal ligation done properly is a very easy procedure and it is unusual that mistakes are made like this. the consequences of mistakes, like unintended pregnancy make doctors pretty careful about this stuff. get the operative report and review it with another gyn surgeon to put your mind at ease. ...Read more

Hpv transmission after laser surgery?
should I be worried? im a male and I had the warts removed, new partner and I don't want to hurt her. thank

However, this family of viruses is capable of returning anytime and can shed without obvious warts. Condoms can help prevent transmission but is not 100%.It is possible you will never shed virus or have recurrence, but this germ may be with you for life. ...Read more

The doctor found 5 types of HPV and she said i need cervical surgery. What does it mean? If the HPV virus will be gone after the surgery?

Cervical surgery is: Usually called a leep or a cone biopsy. It is done to remove "dysplastic" or precancerous skin from the cervix. It does not make hpv virus go away, just the pre cancerous skin changes caused by hpv. The virus will still be there, there is no surgery or medication to get rid of the virus. ...Read more

Have cervicitis for 1yr did HPV surgery 2013. Stil have yeast and cervicitis did # of treatment please tel me the cause & how to treat & prevent same.

Depends: Cervicitis can be treated with a extended regimen of doxycycline... Did your doctor try that? Refractory yeast some times responds to a regimen of diflucan (fluconazole). Otherwise, to prevent, may want to figure out what triggered? Something in environment, diet? Probiotics can help to keep vagina healthy.

Do genital anal warts ever stop coming out? I've had the same surgery twice and the warts keep reproducing. HPV.

Tricky wart viruses: HPV or human papilloma virus is tricky. It's true that often warts will recur 'after' an ablation (surgery). This is because the warts can be 'hiding' in the skin and have not created a 'wart structure' at the time the visible warts are laser-ed off or otherwise destroyed. There is a medication called Aldara (imiquimod) that may help. There is an HPV vaccine- talk to your doc about it. ...Read more
