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?

Well no, but: The gardisil vaccine contains types 16 and 18 which cause 2/3rds of all cervical cancer and another half of vaginal, vulvar and anal cancers. It also has types 6 and 11 which cause 90% of gential warts. So other types not in the vaccine can still infect you but it may prevent your risk for warts by a ton but not completely. ...Read more

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)?

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

If I have HPV I understand the virus will live forever in my body but will I ever be free of genital warts?? Please please clerify

HPV: Contrary to common believe, the HPV does not live forever in most people. The vast majority completely clear the virus within 3 years without any treatment. Just a small percentage become chronic carriers for the virus. Sometimes your immune system will hide the virus completely for decades but then the virus pops back out as the immune system ages. But the vast majority of people clear it. ...Read more

HPV (genital warts) can be cleared on its own within 2 or 3 years, what about HSV? Both of them are belonging to viruses groups. Which is more dangerous

HPV (genital warts) can be cleared on its own within 2 or 3 years, what about HSV? Both of them are belonging to viruses groups. Which is more dangerous

Different dangerous: About 80% of the women are able to eliminate the HPV virus. HPV virus causes almost all of the cervical cancers and some other cancers. HSV never leaves the body and may cause recurrent ulcers with pain and fever. It is not associated with cancer, but can cause serious infection in a new born. ...Read more

Will I have HPV for life? I am 24 years old with genital warts and a recent LGSIL pap smear. Will my boyfriend of 6 months get the virus too?

Will I have HPV for life? I am 24 years old with genital warts and a recent LGSIL pap smear. Will my boyfriend of 6 months get the virus too?

No, not for life: The immune system clears HPV, although it can take up to 2 years. You can assume your BF has already been infected and even might be the source of your infection (you'll never know). Probably he'll never have symptoms, but should keep an eye out for warts. LSIL is mild; you are at low risk for a serious problem. Follow your doc's advice, and also speak with her about HPV vaccination. ...Read more

Hi, I was diagnosed with HPV/ Genital Warts in March this year. How long does virus take to leave the body? And it is useful now to still vaccinated?

Hi, I was diagnosed with HPV/ Genital Warts in March this year. How long does virus take to leave the body? And it is useful now to still vaccinated?

Years/yes: The primary infection usually clears within 2 years spontaneously in people with a normal immune system. Many have visible warts removed (laser, frozen, chemical agents) but the germ itself will often hibernate in your system forever and may recur. The most recent vaccine helps protect against 2 wart strains and 7 cancer associated strains if you have never had them. You would get some benefit. ...Read more

I Have genital warts as well as anal warts outside and internally, I have HPV and have been for surgery 2 months back. Can I die from this virus?

I Have genital warts as well as anal warts outside and internally, I have HPV and have been for surgery 2 months back. Can I die from this virus?

Unlikely: The strains that produce genital warts are not associated with cancer, but you could have picked up the cancer associated strains the same way. The strain you have the warts from is more of a nuisance than a threat. After the warts clear or are removed, the germ can stay in your genital skin and re-emerge as warts later. ...Read more

My biopsy results were abnormal. The dr said I had condyloma. Does this mean I have low risk hpv? What is the treatment? And will I get genital warts?

My biopsy results were abnormal. The dr said I had condyloma. Does this mean I have low risk hpv? What is the treatment? And will I get genital warts?

Not necessarily: If you are referring to a cervical biopsy, you have cervical hpv. Most condyloma are low risk hpv, but it is possible to be high risk type. Mild dysplasia requires no treatment. 80% of this will clear spontaneously. Generally cervical hpv does not cause external or vulvar warts/condyloma. ...Read more

Does HPV that causes visible genital warts in men lead to cancer or autoimmune diseases?

HPV: It all depends upon the strain of hpv you get. The unfortunate news is that distinguishing strains is not readily available with testing. But, the bad strains of hpv can cause throat and rectal cancers in men. ...Read more
