Why was pap done?: Immune system clears HPV, typically in several months. HPV DNA may persist and infection may reactivate years later, but usually doesn't. Why did you have a pap anyway? Paps are no longer recommended before age 25. If your HPV and CIN1 were never detected, they would have cleared on their own, with almost no cancer risk and none of this unnecessary worry. Get HPV vaccine, prevent future problems. ...Read more

Can i get rid of HPV virus permanently out of my body? Is it really right that it may take some years to clear it permanently? Have it since 2013

Don't smoke: HPV DNA may persist indefinitely, but it isn't known how often this happens. Active infection usually is controlled by the immune system within a year or two, does not recur, and the virus cannot be transmitted. So for practical purposes, it is cured. There are no medications, diets, or anything else known to improve clearance. Smoking may delay clearance or increase risk of future problems. ...Read more

My husband has Hpv.i think he exposed it to me though I don't have.we are having unprotected sex.but m afraid of getting this disease.how can get rid?

HPV vaccine: There is actually a vaccine for HPV -human papilloma virus. Even though you are 28, you might be a good candidate for that - given your husband's infection. Unfortunately it might be 'too late' though depending on when he contracted it and how much sexual contact you've had already. I would CERTAINLY talk to your doctor about possibly getting the vaccine and taking other steps to reduce your risk. ...Read more
