Does HPV or genital warts cause bacterial vaginosis?

Does HPV or genital warts cause bacterial vaginosis?

No: Bacterial vaginosis (bv) is caused by an imbalance in the normal vaginal flora. The normal bacteria that live in the vagina are taken over by other native bacteria usually gardnerella, mycoplasma, and mobiluncus species to name a few. Causes are numerous and usually are not pinpointed but can include antibiotic use, douching, and vaginal ph changes. Hpv has not been linked to bv. Read more

Can untreated genital warts weaken your immune system or not as its viral not bacterial?

Can untreated genital warts weaken your immune system or not as its viral not bacterial?

No: Genital warts - caused by the hpv virus - are common and contagious, but they are not dangerous. A person's body mounts an immune response to the virus, but is usually unable to kill the virus and the warts they produce. The overall immune system is not affected and immune responses to other bodily threats will not be adversely affected. Peter wilk, md. Read more

Can u tell me about low risk hoc that causes genital warts?

HPV: I assume "hoc" should be "hpv". Of the 100 hpv types, about 60 cause warts mostly on the hands or feet. The other 40 or so are sexually transmitted, and are drawn to the body's mucous membranes, such as the moist layers around the anal and genital areas. Low-risk hpv strains, such as hpv 6 and 11, cause about 90% of genital warts, which rarely develop into cancer. But they are contagious. Read more

What are the chances bacterial vaginosis causes cervicitis and causes cervical cancer?

What are the chances bacterial vaginosis causes cervicitis and causes cervical cancer?

Low and zero: Cervicitis is often unexplained but folks have looked at the various risk factors and bacterial vaginosis isn't up there, so I doubt it. To cause cancer, something has to actually get into the genes or greatly accelerate turnover and "bv" just isn't going to do this, statistical link or no. Stop worrying. Cervicitis we can treat; cervical cancer we can prevent / treat with due vigilance. Read more
