I received the results of HPV typing and I'm positive for LR57/71, HR 56, HR 66/68. Is there a cure? Does it go away?
Follow doc's advice: Almost all HPV infections are cleared by the immune system, usually 1-2 yr. Viral DNA may persist with chance of later recurrence, but for practical purposes the infection is gone. More important than HPV itself is whether you have dysplasia (pre-cancer cells) of the cervix or other infected area. Even high-risk HPV rarely leads to actual cancer. Follow doc's advice about treatment and follow-up. ...Read more

Question about HPV I am a 42 year old male. My former partner had an abnormal pap 4 years ago which the dr said was hpv, though didn't specify a type. Her subsequent followups and next 3 annuals came back clean, and i've never had any symptoms myself.
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
HPV type 81 in women. How serious? Worst case scenario? Where HPV come from?! Two people no HPV can create HPV? Completely cure? Ever come back?
HPV18 or 81?: I wonder if you mean HPV18, not 81. HPV18 is quite common and one of the major cancer-causing HPV types. If truly type 81, it's probably unimportent. Two people cannot "create" HPV"; it was acquired sexually from someone else. Most HPV infections are cleared by the immune system and do not come back, and even high risk types rarely progress to cancer. Get vaccinated! ...Read more

Im pos for HPV 26 & 53 , what are the risks of HPV type 26 & 53 , can I infect my wife ? What is the risk in this case, what is your advice
Stay calm: Hpv is extremely common. It's nearly impossible to avoid if you're sexually active. Types 26 & 53 are usually cleared w/o treatment in both men & women. The most concerning high risk types are 16 & 18. Your wife is at risk of catching. Research shows use of condoms will not help much in a very close relationship like husband & wife. But even if she catches, she will probably clear. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
