Was diagnosed with HPV 18, but normal Pap smear. Is there anything I can do to combat this virus? Can you get cancers other than cervical from it?

Was diagnosed with HPV 18, but normal Pap smear. Is there anything I can do to combat this virus? Can you get cancers other than cervical from it?

HPV: 70% of cervical cancers are caused by HPV 16 and 18, no other cancers are caused by cervical HPV. In a female age 11 to 26 the HPV vaccine is to be recommended, if 31 is your correct age (?) usually periodic screening is what is recommended. You should talk with your OBG about your best next step, and good luck. ...Read more

My obgyn told me after cryosurgery to have protected sex so not to reintroduce the HPV virus to the new cells? So does that mean it's gone i'm confuse

My obgyn told me after cryosurgery to have protected sex so not to reintroduce the HPV virus to the new cells? So does that mean it's gone i'm confuse

It's gone, for now: The cryosurgery was done to destroy the areas of the cervix that have undergone changes caused by hpv. Whether it is successful will be determined by follow-up pap smears. Since the virus is sexually transmitted, you can easily get exposed again by having unprotected sex if your partner also has the virus. It won't make the original virus come back, but it can expose you all over again. ...Read more

If I have HPV that causes genital warts can my immune system ever surpress it so that it does not come back ?

MAYBE: These strains often clear eventually with or without treatment. However, they are from a family of viruses that tend to persist in your body for life, seen or unseen. The potential for a recurrence of visible lesions remains.Unfortunately, these strains are not killed off or suppressed by current anti-virals. Vaccines given prior to any sexual activity remains the best way to avoid the issue. ...Read more

If you have a normal pap does that mean you don't have the HPV virus anymore? Can the virus go away if you still have warts?

If you have a normal pap does that mean you don't have the HPV virus anymore? Can the virus go away if you still have warts?

HPV : Hpv or human papilloma virus is a family of related viruses that infect humans but cause different problems. Some hpv types can cause genital warts, but the hpv types that can cause genital warts are different from the types that can cause cancer. Hpv is the cause of 70% of cervical cancer globally. There are about 40 types of hpv that can infect the genitals or sex organs of men and women - the hpv types that are associated with changes on a woman’s cervix that can lead to cervical cancer include types 16 and 18, which are generally acknowledged to cause about 70% of cervical cancer cases. Just having the hpv itself is not the same as cervical cancer as many women have hpv. Few of them get cervical cancer if they follow their doctor’s advice for screening and/or treatment. Hpv can infect the normal cells on your cervix to turn abnormal. Over many years, abnormal cells can turn into cancer if they are not found and treated by your doctor. It can take 10 to 15 years (or more) for cells to change from normal to abnormal, and then into cancer. Abnormal cells are sometimes called “pre-cancer” because they are not normal, but they are not yet cancer. The pap test is a screening test for cervical cancer. It looks for abnormal cells on your cervix that could turn into cancer over time. That way, problems can be found and treated before they ever turn into cancer. Recently, a quadrivalent vaccine against hpv 6, 11, 16 and 18 has been shown to prevent infections and the cervical changes associated with them for those virus subtypes included in the vaccine. The effectiveness is nearly 100% in preventing new hpv 16 or 18 infections, which have been associated in more than 50% of cervical cancers. While there has been political controversy about the use of hpv vaccination before onset of sexual activity, the recommendations from the medical community support vaccination. ...Read more

If I had chlamydia twice not sure how long but not treated does that mean I won't be able to have kids ?

If I had chlamydia twice not sure how long but not treated does that mean I won't be able to have kids ?

Maybe,maybe not: You may have had little effect or lots.Early treatment always improves your ability to reduce damage.The germ can travel up into your fallopian tubes and cause inflammation & scaring that might prevent a natural pregnancy or place you at risk of a tubal pregnancy in the future. Time will tell. Discuss it with your obgyn for specific risks based on your own exam. ...Read more

Why do some strains of HPV disappear and not others. I am 42 and I have HPV and it causes me to get irritated during my period. No vaccine to cure?

Why do some strains of HPV disappear and not others. I am 42 and  I have HPV and it causes me to get irritated during my period. No vaccine to cure?

Immune system: Is why some disappear and some do not...Your own ability to fend it off. The gardasail vaccine has more problems than benefits and is not helpful once you have hpv. Chinese medicine can be of tremendous benefit as the herbs can help your body heal itself. I would recommend you find a chinese medicine /acupuncturist in your area, and good healing! ...Read more

I really want to know if it HPV warts always lead to cancer as u get older since ur treated for warts.

I really want to know if it HPV warts always lead to cancer as u get older since ur treated for warts.

No: Warts are caused by one of the HPViruses that do not cause cancer (ueually HPV 6 or 11). Either way, most HPV infections do not lead to cancer. A few, like HPV16 and 18, are associated with precancerous lesions and if not attended to, squamous cancer ...Read more

People tell me when i get my uterus and cervix removed soon, will not be sexually active anymore and i will have to take meds. Is that true?

People tell me when i get my uterus and cervix removed soon, will not be sexually active anymore and i will have to take meds. Is that true?

False:talk to ur doc: Pelvic surgery, whether total or partial hysterectomy, vaginal or abdominal, w/ or w/o oophorectomy, does not render you asexual. Sure you might have some initial post-op discomfort. And if ovaries are taken, you may (not) need menopausal hormone therapy (new catchphrase). But once recovered, you can be as sexually active as you once were. Be sure to ask your gyn about any & all questions pre-op. ...Read more

Is It Safe To Get Pregnant If You Have HPV? Can It harm The baby? I Have No Warts Or Physical symptoms

Yes: Studies years ago showed as many as 70% of college age women had evidence of prior HPV. HPV is a localized tissue infection that does not spread through the blood, so babies only potential for exposure is during delivery.Wart strains can be passed during labor/delivery if delivering vaginally. To date, we have no confirmation that non-wart strains are passed to any newborn. ...Read more

How often do you bleed if you have endometrical cancer and how does it last?

How often do you bleed if you have endometrical cancer and how does it last?

Concerned about this: I am concerned about your question. Endometrial cancer is cancer of the inside lining of the uterus, and bleeding can be a symptom. If you are past menopause, any vaginal bleeding should be evaluated. I don't think there is a "typical" case here. Bleeding after intercourse is also worrisome. If you are having any bleeding that is worrying you, get it evaluated by your health care provider. ...Read more

So basically if I have hpv, i'll never again be able to have safe sex? Any partner that I have is at risk for contracting it?

HPV is Everywhere: Nope. That is not the message you should take home. You should one, get the full gardisil vaccine series. So should all of the potential partners you have that are 26 years and younger. All of the people you meet in your life (96% of them at least) will have been exposed to one of the strains of hpv by the time they are 26. Hpv infection alone is definitely not a reason to become celibate. ...Read more

Does sex have to be long for it to be great sex? Women complain how they do not want a minute man. Can sex be short in time and still be good?

Does sex have to be long for it to be great sex? Women complain how they do not want a minute man. Can sex be short in time and still be good?

Depends on you!: Everybody is different. If you have climaxed prior to intercourse you have a much greater chance of being able to climax during intercourse, especially in a short period of time. If your partner is ejaculating too quickly to meet both of your needs, perhaps a visit to a sex therapist can help him learn a little better control to climax less quickly. If you're both satisfied, don't worry about it. ...Read more
