How old are you, and when did you receive screening by a physician confirming HPV? Why do you feel you have an "already weak immune system?"

Re: hpv virus (does it effect your immune system)

I am 18 years old. My doctor told me in June that I had the HPV virus. They said they noticed abnormal cells on my cervix and it was caused by the HPV virus. They thought they were lowgrade but when they took samples of the cells they found them to be highgrade stage 3 or 2. That was in July. I know I caught the virus in Janurry through may of this year. That is the first time I became sexually atcive again with my boyfriend, who I have only been sexually active with. I have a already week immune system because my doctor told me, and I am constatnly getting sick more and more frequently latley.

Hi Trista,

It is more likely that because your immune system is weak, the HPV has been able to become active. You should concentrate on boosting your immune system to help suppress the HPV virus.

A person can carry the HPV virus for many years without it being active. As far as the person you are having sex with, you have both been exposed. You are not passing it back and forth. Once you have the virus, you have it.

Take care.
