Was told by a dr I had low risk hpv gonorrhea and chlamydia but my sex partner doesn't have it , could she have been wrong ? I don't have symptoms

Was told by a dr I had low risk hpv   gonorrhea and chlamydia but my sex partner doesn't have it , could she have been wrong ? I don't have symptoms

Could be true: The sad thing about all the STD's you mention is that a woman may have them for an extended period without symptoms. The gonorrhea and chlamydia could be present long enough to damage your tubes and reduce your fertility and you still never know. You could have carried all for quite a while. Condoms would decrease risk for your present partner. Get treated or accept the risk. ...Read more

If low-risk HPV is so common & acts similar to flu or chickenpox; symptoms treatable, system weakens virus, why is it so stigmatized as threatening?

If low-risk HPV is so common & acts similar to flu or chickenpox;  symptoms treatable, system weakens virus, why is it so stigmatized as threatening?

Because of sex: Two main reasons. First, HPV is sexually transmitted, and throughout history most societies have had negative views about sex and see STDs as embarrassing and frightening. Second, warts, the main problem from low risk HPV, have a "yuck" factor. Even common hand warts often are considered unclean (e.g folklore about catching them from toads), and many people consider genital warts especially gross. ...Read more

Warts, cancer (rare): Oral HPV usually causes no symptoms at all. Rarely warts inside the mouth; more rarely, cancer of the throat. The vast majority of oral HPV causes neither problem and clears up on its own.

If you think you have oral warts, HIV testing is necessary. ...Read more

Adding the stress of testing and positive results for a virus this common may add undue stress to people for no particular gain. Self examination of the genitals is probably more important. If warts or skin discolorations occur, that is when testing for high risk strains of HPV may be helpful. ...Read more
