Q: Good afternoon Dr. How can some one treat HPV in marriage… I mean both husband and wife?
A: Unsafe sex can cause infection with the human papillomavirus (HPV), which can cause cancer of the cervix and is a risk factor for other types of cancer. HPV is a common sexually transmitted infection that is spread through sexual, skin-to-skin contact. There is a vaccine to prevent this cancer now. Please ask your doctor where you can get it.
Health conditions associated with HPV include genital warts, cervical pre-cancer and other cancers.
Genital warts may increase in number, stay the same or disappear. Treatment modalities include the use of prescription medication. Ask your doctor.
Pap smears can detect cervical pre-cancers before they become actual cancers.
So, both parties should see a doctor asap for proper diagnosis to be made.
All the best.
Have a good night, everyone 😀
