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

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

Not at all: HPV is a family containing dozens of DNA virus strains, many of which infect genital tissue. The HPV is well known for its potential to remain in your body forever in hibernation after it initially clears in 2-3 years. It can and does reactivate in some. Any vaccine must be taken weeks before exposure to prevent infection and none will kill the germ after you have it. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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

Multiple???? 's: Precancerous cells are often linked to prior HPV. The newest vaccine (G9) helps protect against 7 strains linked to cancer but only if you get the vaccine before the infection. HPV strains usually clear after the primary infection heals in a year or two. But the germ can remain & cause cancer. Precancerous cells means you need to be followed closely, and may need them cut out in the future. ...Read more

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.

Depends: There are dozens of strains of hpv but those of most interest include the 4 in the gardasil.

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.

My wife is 30 years old. Should she take vaccine against HPV or did she become overage for the same.

Only to age 26: The vaccine is only approved to give through age 26. While it likely would not be harmful for her to have it, the window of opportunity for it doing her any good has passed by the time you get to her age. Best now she just have routine pap tests to screen for cervical cancer. Get your hpv vaccine while you are young, preferable before starting sexual relationships. ...Read more

I've never gotten any vaccines since I was 5 years old. Is it to late to get a HPV shot? I have no insurance. I'm an independent contractor.

I've never gotten any vaccines since I was 5 years old. Is it to late to get a HPV shot? I have no insurance. I'm an independent contractor.

Depends: The HPV shot targets women 9-26 and the series is pricy. The base cost to the doc exceeds $175/dose & there are 3 doses to complete the series. There are no programs I am aware of that would provide this for free to someone over 40.Insurance usually won't cover it over 26. ...Read more

Had HPV gardisil vaccines in 2011, 2012, & 2014. But 2 weeks ago, got tested NEG for HPV 16 & 18 but POS for 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, 66, 68. How?

Avoid the viruses: There are many, many strains of HPV viruses out there. Only 4 bad strains were in Gardasil. New Gardasil 9 has the 9 strains that worry doctors the most. However, a person MUST stop herself from catching the other strains and all the other STD's by using her own wisdom, willpower, and plain ol' smarts. A person catches all these things from others, so stick with one very clean partner. ...Read more

Can the hpv procervic (genticel) can be used in men as for women as the therapeutic vaccine once if its clinically approved? And when willit be approved

Can the hpv procervic (genticel) can be used in men as for women as the therapeutic vaccine once if its clinically approved? And when willit be approved

Pending approval: GTL001 (ProCervix) clinical trials are still underway and it looks as if the trials are only available to women. I would imagine if the trials go well, that it would eventually be tested and offered to men. Women are at risk for cervical cancer and thus it makes sense at this point to test and administer the vaccine to women first. ...Read more

Stay with 1 partner.: If you got the Gardasil vaccine, you have some immunity to the HPV strains 6, 11, 16, and 18. There are many, many other strains that are not in the vaccine. The 4 strains in the vaccine cause most of the cervical cancer problems, but the vaccine has been improved, and now contains 9 strains. So, if a person is UNABLE to have safe sex, limited to one partner, she can ask her doctor about Gardasil-9. ...Read more
