What is HPV?

HPV is a sexually transmitted viral infection which, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) “is so common that nearly all sexually active men and women get the virus at some point in their lives.” In fact, about 80 percent of sexually active people are infected with HPV at some point during their lives, but many of them never know it.

How To Treat HPV

The good news is, most HPV infections go away without you having to do a thing. Your body’s immune system takes care of the infection, generally within about two years. Of course, it helps if you take care of your health by following a nutritious diet, getting enough sleep, exercising regularly, and practicing safe sex.

The less than good news is that there’s no cure for HPV. However, you have treatment options for the health issues HPV can cause.

Frequently Asked Questions

What people ask ?

Is human papillomavirus (HPV) common?
Yes, it is very common. The statistics vary, but generally it is believed the HPV infection is present in 45 percent of men between the ages of 18 and 59 and 40 percent of women of the same age range.
Can practicing safe sex prevent HPV infection?
Use of a condom and dental dams are encouraged to help protect against the infection. However, there is no guarantee these practices will protect you because the virus can be spread through skin-to-skin contact.
Does HPV infection cause infertility?
No, the infection and the vaccine do not cause infertility. However, treatment for cervical cancer can cause female infertility.
Will most women with HPV get cervical cancer?
No. Although an HPV infection can cause this form of cancer, most women with the infection do not develop the disease. It is important, however, for all women age 21 years and older to get screened routinely for cervical cancer. The frequency of such screening depends on your age and risk factors, which should be discussed with your healthcare provider.
Does HPV cause other cancers besides cervical cancer?
Yes, the infection can cause anal, head & neck, penile, vaginal, and vulvar cancers.
Does HPV ever go away completely?
Once you have the virus, it can stay dormant in your body for the rest of your life, or it may become active at some point. For now, there is no known way to completely eliminate the virus from the body. In most people, their immune system either fights off or suppresses the virus before abnormal cells can develop.
