HPV questions - your opinions.

BomberJack BomberJack
Hey everyone...HPV is the topic of discussion...

I was exposed to it with with my last girlfriend after she had some precancerous cells scraped off her cervix. I was a virgin and thought I was in love and that my own personal health risks were low.

I've been looking at google and its always the same ol same ol, "genital-to-genital" contact, etc.

Maybe you have an opinion or know the answers:

1.) Can a man with high risk HPV on his genitals give it to his girlfriend who is an uninfected virgin through him performing oral sex on her?

2.) If a lady perfoms oral sex on a man, does this heighten her oral cancer risk or her cervical cancer risk if it is the cervical cancer strain?

3.) After a clean pap, is this virus transmittable to a male even though it is dormant?

Thank you kindly for you opinions and knowledge. I'd recommend everyone stop having sex and just use toys off of Eden because this disease is so hard to understand.

Oh and one more question, please...

4.) Over the course of a relationship, could a partner continue to re-infect another partner with the same strand over and over. I know that persistant infection is what leads to the cancer. But I am unsure if studies are just talking about people who have had sex once with the strand and develope immunity over 2 years.

Your questions are of a serious matter and probably weighing on you mind. I strongly suggest getting answers from a professional. They will know better than any community forum members. If you do not have medical insurance you can still inquire with health agencies.

Please seek professional medical advice.

yes, a Dr's response is going to be much more reliable.

It's skin to skin contact...if you touch your penis then touch her vagina you are increasing the risk of transmission. Yes, performing oral sex on an infected person can lead to oral cancer. The CDC website has excellent information on HPV, if you aren't up for contacting a medical professional. For the rest of your life you will have to inform potential partners that you have been exposed to it and no condom will prevent the spread of the virus. There is no cure, yet. If you have a white bump around the glans that wasn't there before it's likely a symptom of exposure, meaning you have the virus. It can lead to serious complications in both men and women if left untreated, but if monitored closely, complications will be minimal.

Thanks everyone for the replies.

I tried asking some questions at my ex-girlfriends appointment with her doctor but she wasn't really in the mood to answer these things. I doubt that my FAA medical examiner I see once a year for my flight physical will know much about HPV either. I'm thinking of maybe going into a walk in med clinic.

At any rate I finally broke the news to this young lady and she took it remarkably well but we will see what impact it has on the relationship.

Thanks again

HPV and Herpes is like the flu of the genitals...at some point the majority of the population has been or will be exposed to both viruses.

Docs can be really uninformative when it comes to subjects they don't know much about. So if you can get multiple opinions, do so. I had an abnormal pap and I had to switch gyn's two times to find someone who will address my concerns. After the initial abnormal pap and no information about it, I switched doctors and had another done, they took a few months to tell me that I had HPV and they then ordered a colposcopy(I think thats the name) which came back normal. Currently, I've no idea if it's dormant, if my body got rid of it, or if it's even one of the serious strains since they gave me no information and I've not yet been to my current doctor for a pap... Most doctors I've been to have been useless and I hope you find one that's useful!

I share both your and my ex's frustration with this. This is such a common disease and they have a vaccine for it, but getting information from professionals is like pulling teeth; Vague at best.

I found the questions on this link to be intresting reading for myself as they relate to a lot of the questions I have and opinions I would like.

Merry Christmas Fantasiers.

This is why I had my son immunized against HPV when he was a kid.

Um... (really, really confused look on my face)... as far as I know, Guardasil is a recent addition to the attack on viruses and has only been approved for biological females and this was only in the last ten years.

It's just a fact of life, especially these days. It AMAZES me to see just how little people know about STDs. I think that may have been the only part of Health classes I ever paid attention to while in school. I was freakin' terrified. And then I became sexually active, thought I was doing everything I could to protect myself and BAM! HPV diagnosis. Whoops!

I just kind of had to swallow it and say to myself, well, at least it's not AIDS or syphilis...yeah, it sucks but it's not that bad.

This was almost two decades ago and everything is nice and calm now. The virus has pretty much gone dormant, though I'll never fully believe it's "gone". My doctor explained that having multiple sex partners can keep the virus active -- how that works is a freakin' mystery to me but it made sense at the time.
