Cervical infections: Testing positive for hpv puts you at a risk of cervical cancer but does not necessarily mean you will progress to cancer. It is important to be compliant with your pap smear exams so that cancer is not missed and early detection of precancerous cells can be managed. Just like hpv, pid is sexually transmitted but this kind of infection can lead to scarring of your pelvic organs if not treated. ...Read more

Can HPV go away on its own like a cold & then its out/over? And how likely are you to get cancers or bad complications from HPV if you contract it?

Sort of: Your immune system should have the ability to fight off hpv and even reverse some of the cellular changes that can occur from hpv. However, hpv has a way of inserting its dna into your cells so that it's not recognizable to your immune system, so it can lie dormant forever there. Also, some individuals do not fight it off as well, for unknown reasons, and they go on to get complications. ...Read more

If I have hpv, does that mean i'm going to get cancer? I've been diagnosed with HPV and am terrified that I am going to get cancer. What are my odds?

No: The majority of people with HPV don't develop cancer. With routine pap tests and HPV screening, patients rarely go on to develop cancer due to the effectiveness of treatment. In addition, there are many strains of HPV and only a few cause most of the cancers. I recommend you speak with your OB/GYN about your specific results and follow their screening and treatment recommendations. ...Read more
