HPV: HPV is a very common virus and there are many strains. Only a few of them are associated with cervical cancer for the female. Once you have the virus it will stay in your system. There is no treatment for the virus. The best prevention at this time is to get the HPV vaccine prior to sexual activity to prevent you from contracting the virus. Screening pap smears is important to look for changes. ...Read more

How is HPV contracted? PAP came back "inadequate" & NEG for HPV 16, 18 & POS for 31-68. Only have 1 partner. What happens now w/ me & my partner? :(

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

Timing issue: At a listed age of 29, you may have acquired the strains long before your present relationship and carried it asymptomatically.The vaccine was first available 8 years ago and not offered to men at that time.Prior to the vaccine this was one of the most pervasive sti's with as many as 70% of adults infected by their late 20's. ...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. But, b/c it doesn't protect against ALL strains, it's important to continue getting Pap testing. ...Read more

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

Does my cancer risk increase if i've been diagnosed w/ HPV then reoccurance to hsil two years apart?

Does my cancer risk increase if i've been diagnosed w/ HPV then reoccurance to hsil two years apart?

Not necessarily: I presume u have a DX of hpv (human papillovirus) which, unfortunately, occurs commonly soon after onset sexual activity in women. There's a higher risk of cervical cancer, so young women (<26) r targeted for the vaccine. I believe ur asking that 2 yrs later an episode of herpes simple 2 (us. Vaginal ulcers) occurred. Am not sure if that further increases risk. But check with an expert. Safe sex! ...Read more

What do we do if my bf has been w someone w hpv? We haven't had sex yet. I've had the 3 gardasil shot

What do we do if my bf has been w someone w hpv? We haven't had sex yet. I've had the 3 gardasil shot

Look for other STD's: If 2 people haven't had sex but know about each other's contact with hpv+ people, that means the couple talks about std's (communication is good!). A man can get Gardasil to prevent getting the 4 vaccine strains, but the shots won't get rid of hpv strains he already has. More importantly, the couple is talking, so they can go together to their doctors to be checked for other std's, like chlamydia. ...Read more
