Can a male immune system eradicate HPV such that they would not be a carrier afterward?

Can a male immune system eradicate HPV such that they would not be a carrier afterward?

24 months: It's interesting that you ask: just to double check myself I checked the cdc. Gov and the webmed. Com websites and did not find an answer.
http://www. Cdc. Gov/std/hpv/stdfact-hpv-and-men. Htm
sciencenews. Org did provide an answer: the median clearance time is 7.5 months, but it can take up to 24 months (based on a study). It is probably a good idea to give it 3 years, before assuming to be free. ...Read more

If I'm a HPV carrier doese it ever go away?

If I'm a HPV carrier doese it ever go away?

Probably.: We've learned a lot about hpv in the past 25 years. Most people who have it clear it completely from their system so that it's undetectable for life by even research techniques. There are a few who do hang onto it in hiding, undetectable until it comes back out later in life. Others stay testing positive for life. These are the people considered chronic carriers. ...Read more

If your partner was diagnosed with HPV, my understanding is that it is fairly certain that you also have HPV. Do I now remain a carrier for life?

If your partner was diagnosed with HPV, my understanding is that it is fairly certain that you also have HPV. Do I now remain a carrier for life?

Probably not: HPV DNA often persists in tissues, but the actual frequency isn't known. However, the immune system suppresses active infection within a year or two, and most people never have another problem, even if DNA persists. For practical purposes, the infection is cured. Most people with HPV are not "carriers for life". You'll probably never have a problem and unlikely to infect future partners. ...Read more

If you are vaccinated for certain HPV strands, can you be a carrier to them if exposed and pass them on to other sex partners?

If you are vaccinated for certain HPV strands, can you be a carrier to them if exposed and pass them on to other sex partners?

No: The HPV vaccines (Gardasil9 and others) will help you develop antibodies against the strains included in the vaccine. With these antibodies your system rejects infection or carrier state of those strains. It would not prevent you from infection or carrying strains not in the vaccine. If you acquired these other strains you could pass them. ...Read more

How do you "catch" the types of cervical cancer? Is it always by sex with an HPV carrier?

How do you "catch" the types of cervical cancer? Is it always by sex with an HPV carrier?

Sex: Unfortunately a condom is not as benificial with hpv exposure as it might for other std's. Infectious particles are often located outside the area covered by a condom & spread in a stealt fashion, so your only realistic ways to avoid hvp is to abstain or get the vaccine. ...Read more

I'm a girl who diagnosed w/ mild cervical dysplasia! I was wondering what's the effect on my boyfriend? Will he get HPV or will he just be carrier?

I'm a girl who diagnosed w/ mild cervical dysplasia! I was wondering what's the effect on my boyfriend? Will he get HPV or will he just be carrier?

He already has it: Likely if you have cervical dysplasia, which is a way of saying that you've come in contact with hpv, then your boyfriend has hpv too. Most people have come in contact with hpv. Males tend not to have any changes in the cells on their penis however. He needn't worry, nor should you. If you're sexually active, chances are very high will contact hpv. Just follow doctor's advice, you'll be fine. ...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?

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

Does HPV virus transfer only when the carrier (host)has an infection (CIN)? Where is HPV located? Only inside the vagina/cervix or thighs/skin outside?

? word games?: The HPV virus becomes a long term resident of the person it infects. While it is obvious it can transfer while visible lesions are present (like warts), it can also be passed periodically if no lesions exist at all. The sites of residence are those preferred by the strain involved. Wart strains are more external while those cancer related strains are more internal. ...Read more
