I got two hpv shots but never the third. How does that effect me?

I got two hpv shots but never the third. How does that effect me?

One can ask her primary care doctor if a third dose of vaccine is needed. If unsure, it is usually fine to go ahead and get a third dose.

Would it be healthy for me to take a second HPV test just two months after?

Would it be healthy for me to take a second HPV test just two months after?

No: Two months after what? If you had a pap that was normal, but was positive for hpv, the current guidelines call for a repeat in 1 year. Your risk of a current cancer is low, but you have to be more concerned about future paps. Discuss your concerns with your gynecologist. ...Read more

Does it make it worse to have all 14 bad stands of HPV, rather than one or two of them?

Does it make it worse to have all 14 bad stands of HPV, rather than one or two of them?

Test error?: It would be extremely unusual for one person to test positive for 14 high risk ("bad") types of HPV. It may be an error in the test. Clarify with your doctor, who in turn should clarify if necssary with the lab; or s/he might consider repeat testing. That said, I doubt having several types raises the risk of cancer or other serious outcomes compared with 1-3 types, a more common test result. ...Read more

Mason, one sex partner past two years and one previously was told he has hpv. What's next.

Mason, one sex partner past two years and one previously was told he has hpv. What's next.

HPV: You were exposed to hpv as a young man. You most likely cleared it and have nothing to worry about. 96% of us are infected by age 26. If you have a history of any anal warts then the next step is to get an anal pap smear with the reflex hpv hybrid testing. But if you have no anal history then there is nothing to advise you to do. ...Read more
