Could my girlfriend carry the HPV viruses from gardasil and pass it on to me?

HPV spread sexually: The hpv virus is a sexually transmitted infection and it is spread sexually. The Gardasil vaccine does not give anyone the virus. It causes an immune response to protect against the virus. If your girlfriend has hpv she can spread it to you. Her having the vaccine can not hurt you. ...Read more

My girlfriend did the first dose of HPV gardasil vaccination, the vaccination is consist of dead viruses right? So nothing to worry about?

My girlfriend did the first dose of HPV gardasil vaccination, the vaccination is consist of dead viruses right? So nothing to worry about?

Gardasil is not made: from actual viruses at all. It is made from recombinant viral-like particles, so if you are worried about transmission of the virus from having the vaccine, it is not a concern. This is a very important vaccine to get. If you are between 11 and 26 years of age (which it looks like you are), you should also have it. ...Read more

What are the cons of the gardisil shot? Is this vaccine injecting u with the HPV virus?

What are the cons of the gardisil shot? Is this vaccine injecting u with the HPV virus?

No Cons: The Gardasil shot is a vaccine that protects you against two low risk hpv types and two high risk types of hpv. The vaccine does not contain any virus. It is quite safe. In my opinion, there is no downside except cost as insurance companies in my state do not cover Gardasil over the age of 26. ...Read more

Can i be tested to see if i carry the HPV virus 25 years ago i was treated for condiloma, never had another bout that i know of.

Currently : Currently there is no routine testing done on men. If you are male and you have a wart removed, it can be sent to the laboratory for analysis including hpv testing. On the otther hand if you are female, the likelihood of you carrying the hpv virus is high since you have had a condyloma. During your next routine pap smear, your doctor can include an hpv test. Take care. ...Read more

Can you carry HPV virus for over 30yrs? Can you have a negative HPV test 2yrs prior to positive ?If so, does that mean you just became infected?

Can you carry HPV virus for over 30yrs?  Can you have a negative HPV test 2yrs prior to positive ?If so, does that mean you just became infected?

Yes, yes, and yes: Yes, you can have hpv for over 30+ years. Any person who has been sexually active with another person ever in their lifetime likely has been exposed to hpv. This is why there has been a push to get young children vaccinated before they become sexually active. If your hpv test was negative 2 years ago but then became positive, then you likely did get infected with hpv within those 2 years. ...Read more

How definite is it to get cervical cancer by HPV? 100%? Do all patients carrying the virus get it even with proper observation and tests?Is HPV fatal?

No. Not at all.: HPV is dozens of different viruses and several of them make it possible for a woman to get cervical cancer. However, if you keep up surveillance, your chance of dying of this are near zero. And most women with these strains won't have problems, period.

What do we do if my bf has been w someone w hpv? We haven't had sex yet. I've had the 3 gardasil shot

Look for other STD's: If 2 people haven't had sex but know about each other's contact with hpv+ people, that means the couple talks about std's (communication is good!). A man can get Gardasil to prevent getting the 4 vaccine strains, but the shots won't get rid of hpv strains he already has. More importantly, the couple is talking, so they can go together to their doctors to be checked for other std's, like chlamydia. ...Read more

Hw can my last paps tests b normal if i hav been diagnosed with abnornal cells and then HPV before? Does my bfriend hve HPV as well? Can tke gardasil?

Normal is true: Most women under 20 who have abnormal cervical cells as a result of hpv infection revert to normal later on as their immune system gets cranked up against the virus. If new recommendations to avoid paps under age 20 had been in place when you were 17 you may have been spared some time, money and worries. But do keep up with paps. Gardasil's best before hpv exposure occurs. Boyfriend-maybe exposed. ...Read more

Yes: The recommendation is to get all three hpv vaccinations so you are protected from the most harmful hpv viruses. Please get the third dose so you will be protected. You don't know what the future will bring and it is best to be all the way protected! ...Read more
