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. ...Read more

I masterbating to panties and it had dried up stains on it. When I cum in the panties my penis tip touch the stain. Can I get hpv if she was infected.

I masterbating to panties and it had dried up stains on it. When I cum in the panties my penis tip touch the stain. Can I get hpv if she was infected.

Low but...: The odd to get HPV under the described scenario is low-almost next to zero, but could not be 100%, because there is no way to know if someone has a perfect natural barrier, that is, skin & mucosa, and as well as no place is perfectly sterile. Despite such, being exposed to HPV does not mean contracting it, and contracting it does no mean going to develop it, because we have a second-line defense.. ...Read more

Is it okay that I get the HPV shot?

You choose: The present HPV vaccine helps protect people from 9 strains of the HPV, but only if they have never been infected by them. It is given as a series of injections to yield long term benefit. It was approved to target the 9-16yo age group. At a listed age of 53, you are not in the target group. It would not hurt you, but may have minimal value. You would likely have to pay the hefty cost (>$200/dose) ...Read more

Are there any secondary effects or risk to the HPV shot?

Are there any secondary effects or risk to the HPV shot?

None in my patients: There is nothing unusual about Gardasil. It is a newer vaccine, so is just as safe as the meningitis, hepatitis, or flu shots. Fainting after shots or blood draws has always happened to a few people in medical settings, so that's not news. In the U.S., 3000-4000 women die each year from cervical cancer, now a vaccine-preventable disease. Somebody's wife, daughter, or mother dies each 2.5 hours! ...Read more

Can you tell me if someone already as hpv, and you get the HPV shot, what will happen?

Can you tell me if someone already as hpv, and you get the HPV shot, what will happen?

Shot may still help.: There are more than 100 strains/types of hpv. The hpv vaccines that are available protect against just a few strains. In general, vaccines do not 'fight' hpv stains that a person might already carry, but vaccines might prevent that person from acquiring infections from new / additional strains. Hope that this explanation helps. ...Read more

Can a HPV shot protect me from common warts?

Can a HPV shot protect me from common warts?

No: There are 99 species of the hpv and one species has little to do with the other. The hpv vaccine is limited to only one species of hpv, which is not the one that causes common warts we get on the skin. Warts can be pretty frustrating, so be persistent under the care of a dermatologist. ...Read more

Can I still get the HPV shot after 1 year of being sexually active?

Reasonable idea: The vaccine can only protect you from HPV strains to which you are not infected. Since the present vaccine contains 9 strains, there is a good chance you have never been exposed to most of them. Getting the vaccine now in not only reasonable but has a good chance of simplifying your life over many years. ...Read more

If im on that HPV shot for men, is it still okay to be sexually active?

Risk is risk: The protection provided by the 2 or 4 strain hpv vaccine applies only to those strains involved (there are many more) and begins to set up within 3-4 wks of the first dose. Completing the 3 dose sequence is thought to confer long lasting immunity. Hpv is one std that condoms don't reliably prevent. If you pick up one or more of the strains before the shot sets up, expect to keep it for life. ...Read more

Hi I was curious what are the side effects of the HPV shot I got vaccinated for hpv today but I don't know what kind it was?

Almost none: Not sure what you mean by "what kind". In the US, only one HPV vaccine is available (Gardasil). You might have a little pain at the injection site for a couple of days, but that's about all. So congratulations on starting the vaccine; you won't regret it. But be sure and get the second dose in 1-2 months and the third at 6 months. ...Read more

I have mild dysplacia and I've been taking HPV shots. I have one more to go. Is there anything I can drink or eat to help it go away?

Boost Immunity: Young women like you almost always get rid of cervical dysplasia on their own. That is why it is no longer recommended by the asccp to start pap smear screening until age 21.
Your own immune system will cure this problem no matter what you eat or drink, but a well-balanced diet and getting enough sleep are a good idea for anyone, including you. ...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

If you already have hpv, is the gardasil shot necessary?
