HPV and removal of uterus

I have HPV and I know several people in the last few years that died from HPV turning into cancer. Is it a good precautionary measure to have my uterus removed?

Re: HPV and removal of uterus

That seems a little excessive. There are treatment options before that, I'd exhaust them before taking such a serious step.

Since you already know you have HPV, you're already ahead of it. Just stay vigilant, and take care of your health.

Re: HPV and removal of uterus

Genital strains of HPV can affect any of the genitals, so removing one organ isn't a guarantee that someone is safe from the negative effects of HPV.
