Hpv?????

My girlfriend and I were both recently diagnosed with HPV. From my understanding, this STD does not really effect the male, but it can be a cause of cancer in women. Is there really any percentage available for the amount of women who actually develop cancer as a result of HPV?

Re: Hpv?????

For those women who have HPV, the risk of actually developing cervical cancer is 1-2%, depending on what numbers you use. But that doesn't mean you don't have to take it seriously. HPV isn't the end of the world, but it is something you need to stay on top of. That means getting regular pap smears and doing any necessary follow up.

Good luck.

Re: Hpv?????

My girlfriend actually went to the gyno and she got a call about 2 or 3 weeks later saying that she had an irregular papsmear. they said that it was probably HPV and they wanted her to come back in for a follow up. She went back a couple of weeks later and the doctor told her that she had some irregular cells and that she would have to come in for regular papsmears just to make sure they dont become cancerous. She didnt have any bumps or warts, but warts can be a form of HPV. I would suggest making an appointment with your doctor as soon as you can.
