I got an human papilloma virus vaccination, am I immune from genital warts?

I got an human papilloma virus vaccination, am I immune from genital warts?

If a guy has HPV (genital warts) he cannot get married in order to avoid transmitting of the virus to his lover? Ex: She is above 26 years old.

If a guy has HPV (genital warts) he cannot get married in order to avoid transmitting of the virus to his lover? Ex: She is above 26 years old.

Doesn't stop wedding: People with contagious diseases get married, everywhere, everyday. It does create a dilemma, as the uninfected spouse doesn't want to catch the infection. First, genital HPV viruses are common, and many people don't know they have them. Therefore, one can get vaccinated (self-pay if no insurance). One can get warts treated to remove them. We can't remove HPV-infected cells that we can't see, yet. ...Read more

Me and my girlfriend have the HPV virus. She's had surgery to cut away the pre-cancerous cells, and I had genital warts. What does this mean for us?

Me and my girlfriend have the HPV virus. She's had surgery to cut away the pre-cancerous cells, and I had genital warts. What does this mean for us?

Keep tabs on it: I'm glad she had the premalignant cells detected and that they will be removed. You can have those nasty warts lasered off or removed by other means. The fact that the two of you have one another and are in a loving relationship is far more of a "plus" than the nuisance of having nasty HPV strains on board. I wish you both the best and hope that your love lasts for a lifetime of happiness. ...Read more

I have HPV- Genital Warts. Will get PAP smear done soon. I'm 28. Can i fight the virus our of my system with my immune, if yes how (diet/supplement)?

Here are some ...: Catracting HPV infection is the common thing in life; some have symptoms like what you saw "genital warts", and most of others become HPV-carriers with no visible lesion & symptom. Somehow, personal immune defense ability can well contain these invading virus. As to if any diet or supplement can do the trick to control it, there has been no known agent for such. But healthy lifestyle can help ... ...Read more
