Should I worry about catching hpv if I become intimate w/ someone before getting all 3 shots? (I've had 1 and will get all 3, but that takes 6 months)

Should I worry about catching hpv if I become intimate w/ someone before getting all 3 shots? (I've had 1 and will get all 3, but that takes 6 months)

Too long, don't wait: Congratulations for a responsible approach to sexual safety, and for being immunized against HPV. The vaccine is highly protective 1 mo. after 2nd dose (2 mo total) -- not quite as good as 3 doses, but close. Also, bad outcomes are rare from any single HPV infection, and condoms reduce risk. So don't let HPV overly dominate romance and rewarding sex. I don't think you need wait 6 months. ...Read more

You don’t have HPV: Your pap result indicate that you are negative for HPV meaning that you don’t have it. In this case nothing happens to you since you don’t have HPV. HPV is transmitted sexually. An “inadequate” results means that there were not enough cells to determine if the cells themselves were normal or not. Since HPV testing was normal there is not likely to be cause for alarm ...Read more

WebMd says body clears HPV virus after few yrs. T or F? Does it go away 4ever? Dr dx w/hpv @22 but I got all 3 shots yrs ago b4 prot sex. I have gen w

Generally, yes. the: virus eventually clears up. However, the damage to the cells on the cervix in particular can be long-lasting and may eventually evolve in cervical cancer. Immunization against HPV protects against the most common strains that cause genital warts and the strains most likely to cause cervical cancer.

Let : Let me start by saying that approximately 1/3 people carry the hpv virus. Most of those people don't have signs or symptoms and may never know. There are 100's of types of hpv, the most dengerous causing cervical cancer in women; there are other types which cause genital warts. The cancer risk in men in much lower than women; the types that most commonly affect men are rectal and throat. We can safely assume based on history your partner is a carrier of the hpv virus, fortunately for her she has had 3 normal paps and therefore showing no cervical changes. To answer your question, hpv can be passed by oral sex and even genital to genital contact. In order to fully protect yourself a condom should be used with all sexual activity (oral and vaginal) from start to finish. ...Read more
