How Long Does An Hpv Outbreak Last
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection. There are over 100 different types of HPV that causes warts in different areas of the body. HPV is incredibly common and almost all sexually active men and women get it during their lifetime. Most of the time HPV does not cause any symptoms or complications. However, A limited number of these HPV viruses are pathogenic and if not monitored carefully can be responsible for causing cervical and penile cancer. Some of these viruses have been ...Read more
Had unprotected sex with a person who found out their last sexual partner had HPV (warts) but hadn't had an outbreak in years. Will I have warts too?
The vaccine protects: Because the vaccine called Gardasil is preventive medicine against HPV strains 6 and 11 (those strains cause most of people's genital warts), and because all young people should have already been vaccinated in the last 9 or 10 years, the young adult man in this situation is presumed vaccinated and presumed pretty safe... meaning he is unlikely to get genital warts. This man is vaccinated, right? ...Read more
Not necessarily: Unfortunately hpv in a woman can often be present without the women knowing it. Genital warts are usually painless, so you often don't have any symptoms from them. Furthermore in women it is difficult to actually see everywhere that the warts might be. On a related note if you're known to have hpv, don't forget about regular pap smears! ...Read more
I told partner I had anal HPV before but no outbreak for a year. He said he's clean and insisted on unsafe sex. We sex for 2 hours. He 100% get HPV?
HPV not the problem:
With no recurrence in a year, there's a good chance you are no longer infected. And as a sexually active person, he has had HPV, probably many times; one more exposure won't make a difference. But as men having sex with men, you're at very high risk for more dangerous STDs, like syphilis, even if you know you don't have HIV, or on HIV treatment. Smarten up:
condomless sex remains very unwise. ...Read more
What dr do I see for HPV and what are the procedures for wart removal and are there any perscribed pill to help prevent another outbreak?
I was diagnosed with non-cancerous anal HPV 3 years ago. Now I have outbreak. Why now? They reappear quickly after healed? I always sex with condom.
Immunity issue: Unfortunately HPV is not one of those viruses that is easily cleared from the body. HPV 6 & 11 cause genital warts, which can affect the anus a well. Despite treatment, the virus can lie dormant and when your immunity decreases, can flare. Make sure you get tested for any other STI's (including HIV), avoid smoking/tobacco, get good sleep, and eat healthy. ...Read more
I had sex with this man once and the condom broke. He had HPV +wart outbreak once a few years ago. Did I automatically contract this? No warts so far.
What is the best treatment for HPV on the penis? Are there any prescription pill that help prevent another outbreak?
I m 25 male, I have HPV warts small, molluscum contagiosum and herpes outbreak together recently...I am scared too much. I got HIV test negative. Help?
See Your Doctor: It is good that you got tested for hiv, although it can take 6 weeks or more before you may show positive from a particular encounter. You need to be tested for other more common stds (gc, chlamydia, syphilis) and make sure the diagnosis of what you have is correct. Medication can shorten the symptoms of the herpes, treatment can resolve the molluscum, and help control the hpv. ...Read more
No: Hpv is a virus (human papilloma virus). Viruses tend to appear or disappear based on our immune system and stress. You didn't say what type of birth control you were using, but hormone birth control won't affect genital warts. Using condoms can help prevent contraction of hpv, but not 100% effective. If you're worried about warts, see your doc, they can help you treat them. ...Read more
Unique to patient...: Duration of hpv infections are unique to each patient. An "average" person may clear an hpv infection in a couple of years; however, complete clearance depends upon the strain of hpv, immune status of the person, nutrition, and smoking (among other things). Cigarette smokers have a more difficult time with hpv. See a doc or visit a clinic for an exam and pap test with hpv dna test. Be well. ...Read more
Possibly 1 week.: A 1997 study in the journal of infectious disease demonstrated that hpv-16 showed 100%, 50%, and 30% of infectivity when dehydrated on a surface for 1, 3, and 7 days, respectively, at room temperature. But the real-world transmissibility of genital hpv is when present on fomites such as towels, underwear, or gloves in unknown. I would be conservative, and take precautions to avoid transmission. ...Read more
I have had cobblestoning on my throats and a small, somewhat translucent white spot on my tonsil for the last year. I have HPV 16 and have for a long?
Probably unrelated: Presumably your HPV16 infection is genital, perhaps showing up on a pap smear, right? While it is possible your throat is also infected, HPV is not a likely cause of either "cobblestoning" of the throat or the white spot on one of your tonsils. The large majority of HPV infections, including HPV16, are eventually cleared by the immune system. Discuss all this with your doctor & follow her advice. ...Read more
Hello I am a male, 25 and I am currently thinking of getting the HPV vaccine. My only concern is will it protect me or wear off? I saw on dr. Oz that it does not last long for males? Is that true?
Hpv vaccine: So what if it wears off? Still protects for some term. ...Read more
How long do genital warts last after getting HPV virus? Am I stuck with them forever or will they eventually disappear?
Depends on person: Some people infected with hpv mount successful immune responses to the virus and will completely clear the infection. We are not able to at this time to predict who will be infected and have the virus linger (carriers) versus completely clearing the infection. It is possible to become 'reinfected' with hpv especially if exposed to a new / different viral type. There are > 100 types. ...Read more
Yes: You also need to stop worrying or beating yourself up about it. With routine health care (pap smears if you're a woman, just keeping an eye on that thing if you are a man and getting suspicious lesions checked by a competent physician), it's not going to kill or mutilate you. Everybody has a few strains of hpv. Get the immunization so you don't get any more nasty strains. ...Read more
Here are some. ..: HPV virus will still exist forever in underwear, but it will not get entrance to a person as long as there is no microscopic skin injury to allow HPV virus to get viable part of skin where it may establish its foothold to thrive and duplicate inside skin cells. At times, even getting entrance to skin does not mean one will be contracted because our body can fend it off by immune defense ability. ...Read more
Many years, rare: The vast majority of HPV infections, even those with "high risk" (cancer causing) HPV types, never become cancerous. Of the 100+ types of HPV, only one, HPV16, causes oral cancer. Of these, probably less than one in a thousand oral HPV infections lead to cancer. When it happens, it can be anywhere from 1 to 30 years later. ...Read more
Depends on patient..: Most people with hpv are asymptomatic and do not develop warty lesions. Some people with hpv will develop abnormal cells (dysplasia / precancer) over time. This is unique for each patient and depends upon the strain of hpv & the patient's immune system. For an "average" patient with a functioning immune system, it generally takes at least 2 to 3 years to show serious cell changes. ...Read more
