I have HPV and the test that was ran was called "low volume hpv". What is this? Does this mean I have the low risk hpv?
HPV: We are still learning all the things we should know about hpv. Hpv has over 140 common strains. 13 of those strains can put you at risk for cancer. 4 of the 13 strains cause 95% of the cancers and are the high risk for cancer. The other nine strains are lower risk or lower volume. Please make sure you have gotten the hpv vaccine known in the U.S. As gardisil. ...Read more
Was told I had low risk hpv no warts was told see her back in to 6mo could I really have it even if my partner was tested for it a doesn't have it?
All is well: Most HPV infections cause no disease. Your positive HPV test doesn't necessarily mean you had a wart causing type of the virus. Only 2 types cause almost all warts; there are over 50 other low risk types. CDC and other health experts recommend that your partner doesn't even need to see a doctor (and doesn't need HPV testing) unless he sees actual warts. Talk to doctor about getting HPV vaccine! ...Read more
Safety in numbers: In the pre-vaccine era serum studies of college juniors showed as many as 70% of women carried evidence of hpv. Once acquired, the germ can fade from view & resurface years later, with or without treatment. Newborns have been known to pick up hpv & develop vocal cord warts, yet these are rare. The fact that this is so common & most people go on with a nl life should be a comfort. ...Read more

I was recently told that I have HPV and that I had to get a biopsy and go to the drs every three months after that. Is that normal? And how do I know if I have low grade or high grade HPV? Would the results of my papsmear tell me?
Discuss w/ your doc: First, having HPV is normal: not desirable, but almost everyone gets it. Follow your doctor's advice for follow-up testing etc, and nothing bad will ever happen (or will be detected and treated before it's serious). Probably testing has been done to know whether high or low risk HPV; ask your doctor. All this should be discussed with your doc, who can help more than a distant forum doctor. ...Read more
Makes no difference: The only thing known that seems to help the immune system clear HPV any faster is to avoid smoking. Treating visible warts may speed things up as well. Nothing else is known to help. And certainly avoiding sex won't make any difference, although of course that would reduce your risk of other HPV infections. You definitely should be vaccinated against HPV if not yet done. ...Read more

Been told I have low risk hpv to come back every 6months can it go away as early as those 6months w/o sexual activity?
More information: If you are 20 years old, there is no reason for you to have had a Pap smear. HPV can present as either genital warts or abnormal Pap. Low risk HPV is generally benign. Your immune system can suppress this, especially at your age. I don't think 6 months is appropriate (more likely a year). I would recommend Gardasil Vaccine. This will help protect against more high risk HPV strains. ...Read more
What does low grade squameous lesion mean? Do I have hpv? My doctor said it can go away? I thought hpv doesn't go away? Help!
Yes HPV; not serious: Pap smear with low grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LSIL) means HPV. LSIL rarely progresses to more serious problems, almost never to cancer. Your doctor is correct: the LSIL will clear up, usually in a few months to a couple of years. Most HPV infections are cleared by the immune system, even though HPV DNA often persists. All in all, this is a minor problem. Follow the doc's advice. ...Read more

Permanent resident: Once you have one of the strains of HPV it can stay around indefinitely.Whether you pass it to anther depends on whether you are shedding the virus at the time of contact. Shedding can be intermittent. If your partner has acquired it, the same rules apply. You do not pass this back and forth like a strep throat. ...Read more
This is my 2nd time having hpv. Did biopsy, low squamous cells. Dr. Wants to do the freeze. Is it safe to just wait and see if it goes away in 6 months?
Probably: Assuming that there are no significant precancerous cells (low grade changes only, not severe dysplasia), it's very reasonable to follow without treating. It's important for you to follow up regularly to prevent cancer. Since your doctor has your results, it's best to review your concerns with him or her. ...Read more

My husband has HPV and i have low grade hpv. .if we continue to have sex unprotected with it make it worse?
Low grade ????: I'm not sure what you call low grade HPV. Either it is a strain linked with cervical cancer (high risk) or not. Hubby's strain is not mentioned. If your strain is high risk, it can go from minimal changes to pre-cancer to cancer over years or decades whether you are sexually active or not or use condoms or not. You are likely motivated to get your scheduled pap smears. Do so and ignore this worry ...Read more
