If someone tests positive for HPV can you get the vaccine (or something else) and have it completely ridded from ur body?

HPV Chronic: Vaccine needs to be given before first sexual encounter by several months so immunity can be obtained. Once you have the infection it tends to be a chronic infection and there are certain strains which can lead to malignancy. Use barrier protection if you have not had vaccine. Tell your sexual partner you have HPV so they can protect themselves.

Is there a cure for HPV I am scared I have contracted HPV and I don't know what to do if I test positive for HPV can I still take the vaccines?

Is there a cure for HPV I am scared I have contracted HPV and I don't know what to do if I test positive for HPV can I still take the vaccines?

No cure: There is a vaccine that can prevent 4 strains of the hpv, but it must be taken before exposure and given time to create protective antibodies before it is protective. Administration after exposure will not cure or stop you from getting a strain you were already exposed to. It will protect you from other strains you have not encountered.

No visible warts now but I may be hpv positive. Does masturbation spread the virus? Can I masturbate in between getting vaccine?

No visible warts now but I may be hpv positive. Does masturbation spread the virus? Can I masturbate in between getting vaccine?

HPV infection: I'm not sure how you would know you "may be HPV positive" if you don't have warts. If you are the partner of someone with genital HPV (e.g. an abnormal pap smear), you may or may not be infected. But if you see no skin abnormalities, you needn't worry at all. Everyone gets HPV, usually several times; by age 48, for sure you have had it, and also too old for vaccine. Masturbation causes no harm.

Hpv and precancerous cells in pap test if I tested positive for one of the strains of HPV that is preventable by the vaccine and did the pap test and the doctor said I have precancerous cells, can this be something that can go away on its own? I was told

Hpv and precancerous cells in pap test if I tested positive for one of the strains of HPV that is preventable by the vaccine and did the pap test and the doctor said I have precancerous cells, can this be something that can go away on its own? I was told

Based: Based on your results, your doctor will make recommendations. Often times, a pap smear will reveal abnormal cells and a repeat test will be done in 6 months to see if the next result turns out normal. However, if you have confirmed precancerous cells, these will not go away on their own. More than likely, they may spread. Your doctor can perform minimally invasive procedures such as colposcopy to remove the cells and prevent spreading. Vitamin c is not typically a remedy for clearing pre-cancerous cells.

How can the new HPV shot work as a vaccine?

How can the new HPV shot work as a vaccine?

Complex Mechanism: The two vaccines are "attenuated". This means that only a portion of some hpv strains are attached to molecules that activate your immune system. You are not given a complete hpv virus, but only a part to train your body's immune system to recognize and target the virus strains. It does not treat cancer.

Why do doctors recommend HPV vaccines for boys?

Why do doctors recommend HPV vaccines for boys?

Prevent carriers: Males can get penile cancer 1% of the time from hpv. 50% of head and neck cancers are now due to hpv. Anal cancers are about 25% related to hpv and of course they can spread it to girls who have a 30% chance of getting cancer from hpv. To stop this disease we need to vaccinate everyone.

Depends: There are dozens of strains of hpv but those of most interest include the 4 in the gardasil.If you completed the series before you were exposed to any of these strains, you are not likely to ever get them or pass them. Any strain you acquired before the vaccine could still be passed.

Will there be a hpv therapeutic vaccine in the next 10 years? What about procervix by genticel?

See below: HPV vaccines fall into 2 broad categories: preventive and therapeutic. Preventive vaccines prevent infection with the virus and therapeutic vaccines treat the infection, the precancerous changes, or the cancer in individuals who are already infected. There are currently several therapeutic vaccines in Phase 2 (and possibly early Phase 3) trials against HPV-16 and 18 which cause most cervical Ca.

Can I still pass HPV if I get the vaccine why would a dr tell me to get the vaccine after exposure?

Antibodies: For several reasons. First the vaccine prevents hpv that is deadly. It creates antibodies that may boost the immune system's response to hpv viruses in general. There are more than 140 strains of hpv but four of these strains cause 95% of the cancers. Get the vaccine. It is vital.
