If You Have Hpv Can You Donate Blood
Yes: HPV is a localized issue like a wart (it's cousin).It does not travel in the blood. There would be HPV antibodies in the blood, but these would protect, not harm a potential recipient. In a donor center you would be asked to read through information about donor exclusions. The will also usually have you answer a computer assisted quiz about infection exposure, etc. HPV is not in these questions. ...Read more
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
Same as a wart: This is because HPV is a localized infection like warts (a cousin virus). Although there are antibodies to the germ that may enter the blood, these are no risk to anyone. The germ never enters the blood. If they stopped this group from donating, half or more of the adult population could not and the blood banks would close. ...Read more
Can I donate blood like I used to? HPV 16 positive. Will it be detected in the blood test? Will I cause harm to others if I donate? Shall I stop it!?
Of course: I'm concerned about you for asking, and whether there isn't some misunderstanding. You say you are 29, and have had breast cancer -- this should have been a consideration as to whether you can donate blood, rather than your HPV-16. The HPV virus will probably never be a problem and if it is, it's manageable if you comply as I understand you have done. ...Read more
I'm a 53 Female HPV carrier & wish to know if I can donate blood, for doesn't a blood borne virus would make me ineligible? Can they screen for it?
Yes: HPV is a local tissue infection. It does not travel through the blood and can never be passed through a transfusion. There will be circulating antibodies to HPV in the blood, but these are not a problem. Blood centers would not routinely look for HPV antibodies. Most will ask you basic questions about sexual contacts & some STD's (not HPV). ...Read more
HPV: HPV is a viral infection that usually does not affect your blood count. If there is a very active infection, you might see a lower white blood cell count with a higher lymphocytes count than granulocyte count. Lymphocytes are the white cells that fight viral infections, granulocytes are the cells that fight bacterial infections. You also may see more monocytes which are the repair cells. ...Read more
How can we test if we have HPV in our body? Blood test is suitable choice? Can HPV transport by blood exchange?
Http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pmc/articles/PMC1660559/ says that HPV can be detected by blood test when doctors here confirmed its not possible! Help??
HPV Pap based test: The presence of HPV is determined with tissue sampling and the DNA fingerprint essentially. This is the most exact method to detect its presence. Although blood tests are possible they are not available for routine use clinicaly. Pap smear changes were an older methodology as well. Difficult to measure in men without an equivalent tissue based test. ...Read more

Trick question: HPV occurs as a localized skin infection & the virus does not enter the blood. However, at some point your body would build antibodies that signify your response to the infection. If the doctor orders a test for HPV antibodies, s/he could find them. However, a general blood test for a common blood count would not. If you let the doc know you have concerns about HPV, s/he could order the test. ...Read more
My doctor took my blood and I was wondering if he could find HPV in my blood? I'm only 16 and I'm scared.
Already exists: There have been blood tests available for quite some time that will document prior infection with HPV. Such studies have no ability to tell whether a cancer related strain has triggered changes in the cervix or other tissue that would eventually turn cancerous. The blood tests simply document that you had it at some point. ...Read more
Human papillomavirus: Can we expect blood tests in the future? What about a cure even for hpv? Very curious. (27yr old male)
No and no. Sorry!: No blood test for HPV is commercially available or expected soon. They are used in research but not accurate enough for patient care. Once a blood test is positive, it is positive for life, long after the infection is gone. True cure of HPV also is unlikely. Happily, the immune system clears almost all infections, and the large majority cause no disease, even the types with the high cancer risk. ...Read more

Can you catch hpv and herpes from blood on the wall by toilet tissue wasn't sure if any was on toilet paper please help very worried? Blood was nt dry
No risk, no worry: Herpes and HPV are not transmitted through blood. Even for blood borne viruses like HIV or hepatitis B or C, this sort of contact carries little or no risk -- especially if the toilet paper did not have large amounts of wet blood, and if no contact of the blood with open sores. Don't worry about it. ...Read more
Different viruses: Hpv is human papillomavirus, the cause of cervical and anal dysplasia and cancer. It is not diagnosed by a blood test. Herpes is a different virus, which can cause genital and anal lesions. There is a blood test for it, but is not used for diagnosis: it just tells you whether you've ever been exposed or not. ...Read more
How long does it take for HPV to be detectable by pap smear or in blood? Very important question.
Different tests: Pap test actually looks at cells under the microscope and can tell if there are abnormal cells (precancer cells). Hpv is a special test recommended only for women over 30 years of age because most hpv infections go away on their own in 80-90% of cases. It is only persistent infection for 10 to 15 years where you have to worry about the hpv infections. So you should wait to worry. Your gynecologist. ...Read more

? lives in blood str?: Your statement is a bit confusing.Hpv is the designation of over 100 strains of virus that may infect the skin or mucous membranes.

They can become inactive & live within the layers of the skin & later reactivate, but they do not spread through the blood. ...Read more

No test for men: Currently there is no test for men to detect HPV. Some doctors may offer anal Pap smears for high risk men (men who have anal sex or is HIV positive). However, there is no blood test to detect HPV at the moment. If you are concerned with any symptoms, please see your doctor to be examined. ...Read more

Some Doctors say HPV can't be detected by blood test & it's impossible when others yes with antibodies! Pathology doctors too! Whom should I believe?
Antibodies=exposure: HPV lives primarily in the epithelial cells that line the skin and some body cavities. Our immune system reacts by making antibodies which if strong enough may limit or prevent future infections as is expected with young women who have been vaccinated. Currently the best way to test for the virus is to examine material from the infected tissue. There is no blood test. ...Read more
