Not all HPV goes away. Why do doctors wait til age 30 to offer treatment? Some test before but not all. If have high grade at 30 what is the treatment?
HPV: I know of no physician, especially those serving women, who would ever wait till 30 to do a pap smear. The pap smear is the basic test for hpv related cervical changes. The only reliable test for hpv in a pap smear is fairly new called the hybrid hpv dna test and is offered at each pap smear. American medicine has no standard of care that would postpone this important test until thirty. ...Read more

Yes and no: Many (most? All?) HPV infections persist indefinitely, in that HPV DNA remains in cells in the previously infected area. However, the immune system usually controls the infection to a point that the DNA cannot be detected, actual disease (e.g., warts, abnormal pap smear) do not return, and the virus can't be transmitted to partners. So for practical purposes, it's cured and gone. ...Read more
Same as younger: The few strains that produce visible warts are treated the same at any age. Non-wart strains have no treatment. Women were doing pap smears to monitor the potential cancer association of those strains for decades before we understood the link to various HPV strains.

I have to have a lietz treatment in my cervix for HPV. I also got told I have cysts, is that from HPV?
LEEP?: "Lietz"? Or LEEP (loop electrosurgical excision procedure)? I'm not sure it's necessary -- pap smears aren't even recommended at your age. Below 25-30, almost all cervical HPV infections clear on their own, even if dysplasia is present. Discuss w/ doc or get 2nd opinion at one of Australia's excellent government funded sexual health centres. Nabothian cysts are normal at age 19, not caused by HPV. ...Read more

Can chronic HPV infection clear up after llettz treatment or is this something I will face again?
Maybe: When we say HPV has 'cleared' it means that we can't detect it in the layers of skin that we're testing. However, it may be buried in deep layers. Even more likely is that you may get re-infected, since HPV is the most commonly sexually transmitted disease and there's no real way to test for it. Make sure to use condoms, and talk to your medical provider about the HPV vaccine (it still may help) ...Read more
I have HPV and my doctor told me I have precancerous cells. What types of treatment am I suppose to be getting for this?

Things to consider: Most adults will get one or more of the dozens of strains of HPV. There is no treatment except to clear warts if needed. Women get pap smears to monitor for treatable pre-cancer findings. The primary infection self heals over a time. You may or may not be contagious thereafter. He can have a blood test to see if he has had it but assume he has. Condoms don't always prevent transfer of the virus ...Read more
What are the symptoms of oral HPV? Are the lesions/warts painful? Is there any over the counter treatment for them like creams/pills...etc? Help
Usually no symptoms: Oral HPV infections are not rare, but a lot less common than genital ones. Almost all oral HPV infections are asymptomatic and invisible: no warts, bumps, pain, burning, or anything else. When warts do appear, they are painless bumps, often with a "cauliflower" appearance. There are no recommended OTC treatments. Happily, oral HPV is rarely dangerous. If you suspect oral warts, see your doctor. ...Read more
