Can a man ever get rid of hpv, not the warts just hpv in general?

by Rachel on April 20, 2011

I had sex with a man who was exposed to hpv and now i have cervical cancer. I really love this man is there any way that he can be vaccinated and get rid of it? After im cured should i have sex with him again?

Now you BOTH have HPV, so if you continue to be mutually monogamous to each other, then that’s fine. There’s nothing else you need to do but continue to get Pap smears and gyne check ups to make sure your treatments are working okay.

Once you have HPV, either your body naturally clear it, or it persists. It cannot be cured. A vaccine would only prevent new strains of HPV from being acquired — it only helps if you haven’t been exposed yet. Vaccines cannot cure infections you already have.

Anyway, as long as you stay with each other, and you are healthy enough for sexual activity, then you can go ahead and do it.

Unfortunately, yes. As of today, there’s no way to protect yourself from human papilloma virus.

I’m afraid to say it’s never safe to have sex with somebody who has had HPV less than a year ago (for females, pap test is OK for at least a full year, and for men… No test available yet!), and then still, there’s a chance of spreading it.

More than 75% of all men and women will get HPV at one point: Its similar to cold sores- Once you have them, you’ll keep getting them for some time, they can crop up randomly (HPV though, can be fully supressed at some point) and if you’ve had it, it can spread to people even when you dont show symptoms.
