Can HPV cause a bad smelling odor in the vagina? If not what else could be contributing to bad smells?

No: Hpv doesn't cause a bad odor. But there may be a different bacterial infection or trichamonas. Retained tampons also can cause a very foul odor. Examination is a good idea.

What other primary symptoms might be seen in 19yo white fem who has HPV that has caused genital warts/vaginal, flat& raised w/sour vag odor? Advice?

What other primary symptoms might be seen in 19yo white fem who has HPV that has caused genital warts/vaginal, flat& raised w/sour vag odor? Advice?

Very few symptoms: Small genital warts have few symptoms, so many women don't even know they have them, unless the warts are on the outside and the women can see or feel them. Warts on the outside (vulva) can itch sometimes. Warts in the vaginal and on the cervix are unknown to the women unless the warts are bigger and/or get irritated by sex. Warts shouldn't cause an odor, so an odor may be due to other reasons.

What causes a women to get hpv? Can she give it to her partner if she has it?

HPV is in all of us: Hpv is transmitted skin to skin and semen to skin. It is thought that americans are exposed to one of the numerous strains of this virus by the time we are 26. There is a vaccine to prevent the four strains of hpv that can cause cancer 95% of the time. This is known as gardisil. There is some evidence that gardisil also provides some protection against other hpv strains.

Sex: 80% of sexually active women have been exposed to hpv. Appropriate concern should come in the form of routine gynecologic screening, such as your annual exam and pap smear when indicated.

I've had abnormal cells after smears for 6 years. Can this be caused by anything other than the hpv? I've just been tested for HPV but worrying

I've had abnormal cells after smears for 6 years. Can this be caused by anything other than the hpv? I've just been tested for HPV but worrying

HPV and PAPs: Hpv is usually the commonest cause for abnormal pap tests. Fortunately we are able to check for hpv relatively easily. I would wait for the results of the testing and have your physician review these with you in light of the abnormal cells that were found. Most healthy women are usually also able to clear hpv infections with no issues. Hope that this was helpfull.

Should I get tested for HPV even if I don't have symptoms? It very rarely causes anything bad so getting diagnosed might cause more worry than its worth

Excellent point: Over 90% of people worldwide carry HPV so you could consider this "normal". Adding the stress of testing and positive results for a virus this common may add undue stress to people for no particular gain. Self examination of the genitals is probably more important. If warts or skin discolorations occur, that is when testing for high risk strains of HPV may be helpful.

Does HPV cause overian cysts?

Not at all: HPV strains are selective in the tissues where they hang out. They NEVER enter your bloodstream or go near your ovaries. They are surface dwellers on the particular membranes they select & HPV likes skin & the surfaces of your genital membranes.

Would the HPV virus cause you to not menstrate?

Would the HPV virus cause you to not menstrate?

No.: When present, hpv infects the lining of the vagina and cervix. Hpv does not impact the ovaries or the lining of the uterus (parts of the female genital tract involved in menstruation). Hpv can cause warts, premalignant changes and in some instances malignancies of the cervix, vagina, and skin around the pelvis / anus, but having hpv generally does not impact menstruation.
