Human papilloma virus vaccine for boys ok?

Highly recommended: The hpv vaccine has been well tolerated. It's recommended for boys at 11 or 12 through age 21 but can be given as young as 9 (and through age 26 for those at higher risk). It reduces the risk of anal cancer in boys and girls as well as the risk of cervical cancer in girls. Hopefully it will reduce some other hpv related cancers.

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

Can you get Gardasil 9 vaccine at 32yrs? If you haven’t been exposed to the hpv viruses that the vaccine protects against, it will still work?

Yes: At a listed age of 31, you are beyond the approved age (9-26) where insurers would cover it. You could benefit from the protection provided by the newer 9 strain Gardasil that cover for any strains you have not been exposed to.The vaccine doesn't treat or help with existing HPV infections.

Hello, I would like to ask about your opinion on vaccination Gardasil 9 against HPV virus. Is there any serious side effects of this vaccination?

See below: Side effects are uncommon and are usually limited to the site of injection. You may consult this site for more information on this topic: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/hpv-infection/in-depth/hpv-vaccine/art-20047292 Benefits of the vaccine far outweigh any side effects.

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.

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

Site specific: Genital warts are rather site specific. They are known to show up on external genital skin like the labia and penis, the vocal cords, and at the lip margin in immune depressed HIV patients. Gardasil is not a treatment for anything. It is a vaccine that can help prevent someone from getting new strains of HPV. The only way to verify she has anything in her throat is for an ENT to evaluate her. ...Read more

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

HPV can occur anywhere on the body. Herpes can cause ulcerated, black-ish lesions while HPV causes smooth round warts (see images).

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
