Hpv (Definition)

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

What is stage 2 hpv?

What is stage 2 hpv?

Maybe CIN2?: "Stage" isn't normally used in connection with HPV. If you've had an abnormal pap smear, I wonder if you have CIN2. CIN means cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, with increasing severity (further along toward possible cancer) for 1, 2, and 3. If you have CIN2, follow your doctor's advice about treatment and follow-up. That will prevent progression to cancer. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

What does stage two HPV mean?

What does stage two HPV mean?

??????: I think you mean cin2 or moderate dysplasia. There is no stage 2 hpv. There is a low risk hpv that causes warts. There is a high risk hpv that causes precancer and cancer cells in the cervix. Cin2 is a moderate degree of precancerous cells in the cervix. Hope the info helps and that I interpreted the info correctly. If not send me a follow up. ...Read more

Is there an alternative for severe stage 2 cystocele other than mesh? I am an athlete, mom of 4, post hysterectomy from HPV 4 yrs, & only 36. Help!

Is there an alternative for severe stage 2 cystocele other than mesh? I am an athlete, mom of 4, post hysterectomy from HPV 4 yrs, & only 36. Help!

Yes: Mesh is definitely not your only option. Doctors can suspend vagina wall from the inside/abdomen as well. If it were me, and I were 36 years of age, I would not recommend vaginal mesh in you. You are way too young. Of course pessary is an option too, in the meantime while you make a decision. Or for long term. See a urogynecologist, board certified, to make sure you are in the best hands. ...Read more

Hpv with abnormal bleeding on and off for the past two months! What do you recommend?

Think of the worst: If you have confirmed hpv infection and has abnormal bleeding, I suggest you have pap smear if you did not already do. If you have pap smear, I would recommend to go to your doc to have repeat test and further elaborate evaluation. Good luck. ...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

HPV type 81 in women. How serious? Worst case scenario? Where HPV come from?! Two people no HPV can create HPV? Completely cure? Ever come back?

HPV type 81 in women. How serious? Worst case scenario? Where HPV come from?! Two people no HPV can create HPV? Completely cure? Ever come back?

HPV18 or 81?: I wonder if you mean HPV18, not 81. HPV18 is quite common and one of the major cancer-causing HPV types. If truly type 81, it's probably unimportent. Two people cannot "create" HPV"; it was acquired sexually from someone else. Most HPV infections are cleared by the immune system and do not come back, and even high risk types rarely progress to cancer. Get vaccinated! ...Read more

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?

It gives protection: Getting 2 HPV shots offers good protection against the strains fo HPV that cause genital warts, cervical cancer, or anus cancer. 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. A third dose should increase one's antibody levels for better and longer-lasting protection. ...Read more

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

Why?: If your concern is a serum test for antibodies, the result may change after 2 months if related to a specific exposure, but the issue is over rated. In the pre-vaccine era as many as 70% of college age women were found to be serum positive. Most went on to live an uneventful life. A few were diagnosed early & treated for pre-cancer because they had their pap smears done as recommended ...Read more

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

How is HPV treated in women? I have read that is some cases it can clear on its own in about two years. Is this accurate?

I'm two months pregnant and I have HPV will this affect my baby?

I'm two months pregnant and I have HPV will this affect my baby?

No, usually not: Hpv will affect your cervix, but should not affect your baby. It may be possible that a baby can swallow hpv on his or her way out, through the cervix and vagina. . . So ask your ob-gyn doctor if this possibility is anything to worry about in your situation. ...Read more

Hi. Can a women or a men develop HPV without sexual contact. If the couple has it does it mean that one of the two slept with someone else who has it?

Hi. Can a women or a men develop HPV without sexual contact. If the couple has it does it mean that one of the two slept with someone else who has it?

HPV transmission: Although HPV is mainly considered a sexually transmitted disease, there is some evidence of some transmission during exposure during rough play such as wrestling or contact sports. This is one of the reasons the Gardasil vaccine for HPV prevention is administered to boys and girls as early as 11 years of age. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Can HPV cause vaginal burning for two years?

Vaginal burning: Hpv does not usually cause burning. You may have an infection or more likely an inflammation of the vagina from something such as the soap you use. You may also have burning caused by irritation of the nerve to the vagina (pudendal nerve). ...Read more

If HPV is possitive for two couple can the immune system clear it of or it makes it harder because they are sharing hpv?

Its a virus: HPV is a virus & in asymptomatic people, it can go unrecognized. Treatment is geared toward the symptoms (genital warts or cervical cancer) when present but not for the virus itself. Like any virus, it clears up on its own; however, recurrent exposure increases the chances of developing symptoms over time. ...Read more

Pap came back high grade after son was born went in for HPV biopsy and cleared have two more tests what could cause this? Never had abnormal pap b4

HPV: You most likely had a high risk strain of hpv that was cleared but caused cervical dysplasia before being cleared. In general, women under 30 should not be tested for hpv because it will likely go away. Over 30, women should be tested because hpv is less likely to go away. ...Read more

I have had anorectal warts causes by hpv almost two years ago. I'm getting them removed this week with a leep. Is this method effective with a 30% recc?

I have had anorectal warts causes by hpv almost two years ago. I'm getting them removed this week with a leep. Is this method effective with a 30% recc?

Can help: The HPV family of viruses have the ability to hibernate in your tissue and return to a symptomatic phase at some point in the future. Whether you burn/freeze or cut the warts off, there may be virus hiding at other locations that will emerge in the future. It may also be one & done, since some do not experience recurrence. ...Read more

Hi, I'm almost 25 years old, I had my first two gardasil HPV shots in 2008. Do I have to get the last one? Is it a must? I'm married and I only had 1 sex partner in my life and I'm not going to have more, he is healthy and me too.

Hi, I'm almost 25 years old, I had my first two gardasil HPV shots in 2008. Do I have to get the last one? Is it a must? I'm married and I only had 1 sex partner in my life and I'm not going to have more, he is healthy and me too.

Yes: The recommendation is to get all three hpv vaccinations so you are protected from the most harmful hpv viruses. Please get the third dose so you will be protected. You don't know what the future will bring and it is best to be all the way protected! ...Read more

Have two warts onbase of penis and only have been with one person who does not have hpv?

Genital warts?: First, there are skin bumps other than warts, so be sure the diagnosis is correct. Second, you can't tell if your partner has had HPV; there is no test that shows for sure if someone is or isn't infected. (If the other person has had even one other sex partner, s/he could be infected.) Even if you have genital warts, no big deal: it's not serious, easily treated, will clear up. ...Read more

Does my cancer risk increase if I've been diagnosed w/ HPV then reoccurance to hsil two years apart?

Does my cancer risk increase if I've been diagnosed w/ HPV then reoccurance to hsil two years apart?

Not necessarily: I presume u have a DX of hpv (human papillovirus) which, unfortunately, occurs commonly soon after onset sexual activity in women. There's a higher risk of cervical cancer, so young women (<26) r targeted for the vaccine. I believe ur asking that 2 yrs later an episode of herpes simple 2 (us. Vaginal ulcers) occurred. Am not sure if that further increases risk. But check with an expert. Safe sex! ...Read more

Colpscopy in 2010. Showed mild hpv. Have had two normal pap smears. Does that mean HPV is gone? Can I get back hpv?

Colpscopy in 2010. Showed mild hpv. Have had two normal pap smears. Does that mean HPV is gone? Can I get back hpv?

You still have it,,,: You still have hpv once you got it. The purpose of the pap is to keep checking for changes that can become or are cervical cancer. You've had 2 normal pap smears. If they were consecutive, you could wait 3 years until you get your next pap, but looking at your history, you might be better off still doing it every year. It would be smart to talk to your doctor for the best course of action. ...Read more

No, but...: You can stop worrying about dying of cancer of the cervix if, and only if, you comply with the directions you get from your gynecologist for follow-up. Your risk is low in any case but do not become complacent. I don't think you would in any case. Best wishes. ...Read more

Hello. I found yesterday that I have HPV. I Don't know how I got this. I am married and have two kids. Can I have complications in pregnancy? Thank you

Common issue: HPV is a family of viruses, some of which infect the genital tract. In the pre-vaccine era 60-70% of college age women were found serum positive for genital strains. Only a few strains have symptoms (warts) most do not. Their link to cervical cancer is why pap smears are routine. Once acquired, it can be dormant forever. Rare transfer of the wart stains can occur during childbirth. ...Read more

Amenorrhea: Menopause can occur at any age after age 35 and still be normal. However, there are lots of causes for skipped periods and most of them aren't menopause. Its not uncommon to not ovulate regularly and have this happen. See your GYN. Also the HPV has nothing to do with the lack of period ...Read more
