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

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

Can a woman give a man hpv? How serious is it?

The more partners one has, the increased risk for cancers of the penis and the cervix (though penile cancer is very rare). The biggest threat from hpv is to the woman. Always use condoms and that will help prevent the transmission, not 100%, but significantly. Pap smears help detect hpv. ...Read more
