Bf of three years has HPV warts and i don't. Does that mean he cheated?

Bf of three years has HPV warts and i don't. Does that mean he cheated?

Not necessarily... : Hpv infections can be undetectable for long periods of time (years) and can then be identified. It is possible that your boy friend was infected prior to becoming involved with you, and if that is the case, then he didn't "cheat". It would be good to discuss this with your doc and with your boyfriend or even with both at the same time. Hope that this helps... ...Read more

Hpv (Definition)

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.

I'm just wondering, if you have had all three HPV jabs would you still need to have a smear test?

I'm just wondering, if you have had all three HPV jabs would you still need to have a smear test?

I assume you mean: The hpv vaccine, yes you still need paps because you could have a different high risk type of hpv, if you have had normal paps at your age you can get paps every 3 yrs , please consult with your gyn, u still need an annual exam to check for everything else. ...Read more

I was recently told that I have HPV and that I had to get a biopsy and go to the drs every three months after that. Is that normal? And how do I know if I have low grade or high grade HPV? Would the results of my papsmear tell me?

I was recently told that I have HPV and that I had to get a biopsy and go to the drs every three months after that. Is that normal? And how do I know if I have low grade or high grade HPV? Would the results of my papsmear tell me?

Discuss w/ your doc: First, having HPV is normal: not desirable, but almost everyone gets it. Follow your doctor's advice for follow-up testing etc, and nothing bad will ever happen (or will be detected and treated before it's serious). Probably testing has been done to know whether high or low risk HPV; ask your doctor. All this should be discussed with your doc, who can help more than a distant forum doctor. ...Read more

Is it bad if you have sex with your significant other while they have HPV and you have already been given the three series of shots?

Is it bad if you have sex with your significant other while they have HPV and you have already been given the three series of shots?

HPV: The gardisil vaccine will provide you some protection in many of the hpv strains but it will keep you from getting the four strains of hpv that cause 95% of the cancers of the cervix. Good for you for getting this important vaccination. ...Read more

Ascus: Its Ok but get a HPV next time. ASCUS with negative HPV is not a big concern ASCUS with positive HPV likely requires colposcopy. http://cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/detection/PAP-HPV-testing ...Read more

Diagnosed HPV 16, 18 months ago. Done paps every three months, plus two bispsies, all negative. Now pap says squamous metaplasia: should I worry?

No, but...: You can stop worrying about dying of cancer of the cervix if, and only if, you comply with the directions you get from your gynecologist for follow-up. Your risk is low in any case but do not become complacent. I don't think you would in any case. Best wishes. ...Read more

If you have had three abortions and they all went well but now I have a slight case of the HPV will I have a hard time getting pregnant later on?

If  you have had three abortions and they all went well but now I have a slight case of the HPV will I have a hard time getting pregnant later on?

Risk higher: Every time you have an abortion there is slight increase in risk to future pregnancies - not so much in conception as in risk of prematurity. Another reason that pregnancy prevention is preferred over abortion. The HPV shouldn't have much effect. 80-90% of cases of HPV are spontaneously cleared by the body anyway. ...Read more

30 years old, had three sexual partners-- been with my husband for 11 years now. I've never once had an abnormal pap.does that mean I never had hpv?

30 years old, had three sexual partners-- been with my husband for 11 years now. I've never once had an abnormal pap.does that mean I never had hpv?

No: Keep getting your pap smears but you're at low risk. Congratulations on your successful relationship and your wise life choices overall. And if HPV does turn up, we can manage it with near-100% success if you're compliant. In the old days, cancer of the cervix caused by HPV was a mass killer, worse than breast cancer today. Now the key is avoiding HPV, but managing it sensibly when it turns up. ...Read more

I have HPV and my period stop for two to three months im 38 can that be due to early menopause?

Amenorrhea: Menopause can occur at any age after age 35 and still be normal. However, there are lots of causes for skipped periods and most of them aren't menopause. Its not uncommon to not ovulate regularly and have this happen. See your GYN. Also the HPV has nothing to do with the lack of period ...Read more
