Re: hpv, hsv1, hsv2?

hpv can be associated with genital warts and can cause cervical cancer...no it has nothing to do with herpes (hsv1 or 2). Many more people have hpv than herpes, my gyno said 7 out of 10 people have hpv. As I understand there is no test for men for hpv. Personally I don't even think about hpv as almost everyone sexually active has it.

Re: hpv, hsv1, hsv2?

oh because the girl said that as long as she isnt stressed that wont cause it to be active.. then it could be spred or something like that. it isnt curable right? if not then why isnt it up top with herpes.. and is the 7 out of 10 more then the % of ppl haveing herpes?

Re: hpv, hsv1, hsv2?

It sounds as if your friend is confused...stressing out causes HSV OBs, not hpv...I think unless you have genital warts, you wouldn't know that you have it and I don't believe stress causes warts. Just search for hpv, you'll find plenty information on it. 1 in 4 people are estimated to have genital herpes...around 80% have oral herpes. Genital herpes can be either 1 or 2.

Re: hpv, hsv1, hsv2?

idk.. she said that the girls doctor told her that not to be stressed etc.. i do know she has cervical cancer and she just found out yesterday. and then my friend said she seen pic's of it and it looked nasty.. im assuming she would or has both warts and hpv? No out breaks happened being she just found out about it but this is what i was told. so more ppl would have oral herpes then genital herpes?

You do know that oral herpes is what's commonly refered to as cold sores or fever blisters don't you? I mean almost everyone I know gets fever blisters. I hope that you also know that cold sores can be spread to your sexual partner having oral sex with them thus giving them genital herpes.

My Gyno told me that if you have cervical cancer, you do have hpv. He claimed it's the only cancer that they actually know it's cause. That doesn't mean that if you hav hpv that you for sure will get cervical cancer.

Acting_up-

it's not much to think of. cold sores and fever blisters really aren't that big a deal. it's just the actual NAME of what it really is that scares people. you can get a cold sore out of what seems like no where, you don't have to sleep with someone to get it. it got a cold sore for the 1st time when i was 7 years old.

Re: hpv, hsv1, hsv2?

I'm not sure what you mean but I know that a lot of people...most people in fact...have cold sores (hsv1) and they have no idea that they can give someone genital herpes if they have oral sex with them. It isn't any less of a genital herpes than if you have hsv2...genital herpes is genital herpes. Some say if you have hsv1 genitally that the OBs won't be as severe but I believe that is not accurate. The last video I watched with two expert doctors talking about herpes said that they are beginning to not even make a distinction between whether or not it's 1 or 2 in the genital area...they are just now calling it genital herpes...period. It really doesn't matter, if you have herpes OBs in the genital area, it's considered genital herpes whether you got it from oral sex or intercourse. So yes...having cold sores is a big deal if you participate in oral sex which I think most of us do these days.
