I gave oral sex to a woman and I am worried about contracting herpes, hpv, warts or somthin. I heard to get something oral is rare is this true?

I gave oral sex to a woman and I am worried about contracting herpes, hpv, warts or somthin. I heard to get something oral is rare is this true?

Mostly true: Oral sex can be considered safe sex. It's not completely free of STD risk, but low risk for all STDs and zero for some. Altogether a lot safer than unprotected vaginal or anal sex. Risk is especially low for cunnilingus (oral-vaginal). Oral warts and herpes in particular are rare from oral sex. No need for testing if no symptoms (sores of lips or tongue, sore throat) in next 1-2 weeks. ...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?

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

Why 3 shots of Cervarix for HPV? Will this last forever and I don't need to get the shots again? And is there a vaccine for Herpes?? I have HPV 16

Why 3 shots of Cervarix for HPV? Will this last forever and I don't need to get the shots again? And is there a vaccine for Herpes?? I have HPV 16

Immune stimulation: Research has shown dependable long term immunity with the three dose series while one or two would not consistently provide that benefit. Such is true with some vaccines, which push your immune system to work, but do not have the same stimulant effect as the actual disease. The infection would be a continuous trigger. No herpes vaccine is currently available. ...Read more

Had intimate Hollywood wax in a salon that double dips. Can I get herpes/HPV/ other STI from this? Virus from prev client survive in wax?

Had intimate Hollywood wax in a salon that double dips. Can I get herpes/HPV/ other STI from this? Virus from prev client survive in wax?

Uncertain, but...: I am afraid there have been no exact studies to address the connected concerns in your scenario. But contracting infective agents may take place as long as the external natural barrier like skin or mucosa is broken by sex-related acts. And the related symptoms may develop if internal humoral immunity is not strong enough to fend off the invading infective agents. Nonetheless, seek evaluation... ...Read more

How do you get tested for herpes? I've had several pelvic exams, blood drawn, urine analysis. What else can be done? Idk if its warts I had hpv

How do you get tested for herpes? I've had several pelvic exams, blood drawn, urine analysis. What else can be done? Idk if its warts I had hpv

History and physical: Urinalysis is worthless as a diagnostic tool, the herpes 2 bloodwork is infamous unreliable, and examination between outbreaks is not helpful. You might have the opportunity to have the suspect lesions seen during a flare -- herpes comes and goes, warts are more likely to remain constant, and there are other lesions that can do either. Good luck and stay proactive. ...Read more

Why does HPV causes cancer where herpes for example doesn't? What makes it more dangerous when both are STDs & viruses? Will I get rid of HPV16 ever??

Why does HPV causes cancer where herpes for example doesn't? What makes it more dangerous when both are STDs & viruses? Will I get rid of HPV16 ever??

Your HPV will clear: HPV and herpes are different viruses. Not every virus causes the same health problems as others. Neither herpes nor HPV is very dangerous, and it isn't sexual transmission that makes anything dangerous. Most HPV infections (type 16 and others) are cleared by the immune system over 1-2 years and do not cause cancer. People tend to get freaked because of association with sex, but there's no need. ...Read more

Can a person get HPV or herpes in the throat. I'm not sick but my throat hurts sometimes and I feel like I've held my breath. I have HPV and hsv1.

Yes. Dr. can check.: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). A couple days of throat lozenges and tylenol (acetaminophen) can decrease throat pain. ...Read more
