Hpv Now What
My husband has HPV and i have low grade hpv...what now?...will it go away on his part and mine?...
Follow up: About 80% of people with a new HPV infection will clear the infection by one year and 90% by three years. Once diagnosed with HPV it is important to continue the follow up until the HPV infection is gone because some people will develop dysplasia which could progress to cancer if not treated appropriately. ...Read more
Helps boys & girls: While girls have the risk of cervical cancer from certain strains of hpv, boys are not free of problems from it. Genital warts can be disfiguring, painful, and hard to get rid of. It's unfortunate for a boy to spread hpv to someone he loves. There are hpv-caused premalignant or malignant growths in males. (bowenoid papulosis) both sexes can get hpv-induced anal cancers. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If your partner was diagnosed with HPV, my understanding is that it is fairly certain that you also have HPV. Do I now remain a carrier for life?
Probably not: HPV DNA often persists in tissues, but the actual frequency isn't known. However, the immune system suppressive active viral infection within a year or two, and most people never have another problem, even if DNA persists. For practical purposes, the infection is cured. Most people with HPV are not "carriers for life". You'll probably never have a problem and won't infect future partners. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I gave my bf oral before I found out about my HPV do I have to worry about when my little nephew gives me kisses now?
Yes: HPV cannot be cured; therefore, the infected person is essentially contagious for life. Approximately two-thirds of the people who have sexual contact with a partner with genital warts will develop this disease. Remember that use of condoms may prevent the virus from coming in contact with susceptible skin areas. However, since HPV can infect the scrotum and vulva, transmission can occur outside condom-covered areas. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Perineal warts are: Caused by hpv 16, 18. No oral/pharyngeal warts, but oropharyngeal cancers. Infection seems relatively innocuous, it's the long term risk.

Indai is like everyplace else. ...Read more
My very close friend with HPV visited me and i lent her my bed. Now i don't have any clean bed sheets, is it risky to sleep on that bed?
Never heard of it: I have never ever heard of a case of transmission of hpv from such casual contact as viral shedding on linens and then contact with that. Hpv does not live off the body well, so the likelihood that you are going to infect yourself just sleeping on sheets she has slept on in my mind is right next to zero. It's the old you don't catch std's from toilet seats - you need more intimate contact. ...Read more
