I am going through menopause and began taking black cohosh to relieve symptoms. I have hpv. Is this ok?

In brief: Probably ok

There were some early studies that showed black cohash could be helpful in alleviating menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes.
This should be fine as long as: one takes the lowest effective dose, that dose does not exceed what is recommended by the manufacturer, that there is no interaction with other medications, and that one is being followed medically by their doctor.
