There are several strains of HPV.
*Does the current HPV vaccine cause immunity to all strains of HPV?
*If a person is already infected with some strain(s) of HPV, does it make sense to get the HPV vaccine anyway, for immunity against the rest?
If the HPV vaccine is truly effective, it is a wonderful breakthrough.
It means that
although it does not cure a person who is already infected with HPV, it would seem that it could provide immunity for any partner(s) who are not already infected.
What I'm saying is, if you have a potential partner, there are two possibilities ( within the context of HPV ):
They could either already have HPV in which case it is 'par for the course' between the two of you ( you should still protect each other ).
Or, if they are uninfected, then they could get the HPV vaccine, rendering your condition ( HPV ) harmless to them.
So, ( and I don't often use this phrase; just somehow not completely comfortable with it, but ) it would seem then that
' it's all good '
