I want to be HPV clean after testing positive with HPV16 & others. What to do? How can I be back to normal & STD free. There has to be a solution plz

Although hpv testing is not a replacement for cytology, it does provide important adjunctive information that can be useful in managing patients. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
