Some strains of HPV cause genital warts. Chlamydia is caused by a bacterium,not by a virus.

Yes. Stop asking and get yourself checked out.

Yes it can lead to both. It can even lead to cervical cancer. Get tested.

I have done a TON of research on HPV. I have seen several HPV specialists too and I feel that I should pass on what I’ve learned so far to keep everyone better informed. I will talk more specifically about the high risk strain which is what I have…

HPV can be passed through oral, anal, vaginal sex and can be passed by mutual masturbation. I am about 70% sure that it cannot be passed through a toilet seat. I know 100% for sure that it can be passed it you touch your genitals and then with that same hand touch your partners genitals. That scenario would probably come up during mutual masturbation.

There are no tests for a man. There are several test for a woman (pap test, hpv DNA test, and the PCR test-which will tell you the specific strain of high risk HPV that you have – unfortunately most doctors havent heard of the PCR test and are weird about administering it..)

If you get HPV, woman will almost certainly have an abnormal Pap Smear which will show that they have it. This can easily be treated and shouldnt be a big deal that you have high risk HPV in relation to vaginal sex.

Once I found this out my worries about HPV subsided until years later when I found out something much more awful about HPV that is just now making headlines. And that is that BOTH men and women can get Oral cancer, Neck cancer, Throat Cancer, and Head Cancer all from high risk HPV!!!!! The high-risk HPV is much worse than people think. Heres why:

1-theres physical no symptoms of it whatsoever
2-doctors arent sure if it ever goes away! which means you could probably ALWAYS pass it on
3-most normal dentists DO NOT check for signs of oral and throat cancer. you must see a specialists
4-the symptoms of ORAL cancer are often hard to notice and are NOT painful… so it goes undetected until its in its later stages
5-while ORAL cancer will not kill you (you may lose your lower jaw and all your teeth as a result of having it), the cancer advances into your lympnodes which are a gateway to all your major organs.
6- 50% of all people diagnosed with ORAL cancer will be dead within 5 years
7-this is the worst part of this whole list… you may be wondering if all this is true, then why dont we already know about this and why aren’t more people dying all the time from oral HPV? Well… heres why: Until now, doctors and scientists have thought that alcohol and tobacco use were the driving factors of oral cancer. Well now they are believing that all those cases they previously believed to be a result of smoking and drinking, were actually a result of oral HPV. A study was done recently that concluded that over 75% of oral cancer was HPV related and that drinking and smoking really didn’t worsen the chances of getting the oral cancer. That HPV was the complete driving force of it! If you have HPV, your odds of getting ORAL cancer are 32x greater!!!! If you drink and smoke regularly, your chances are only 2x greater!!

There are currently no tests that can detect oral HPV. There is talk of some sort of rinse that can but scientists have proven that the oral rinse test is very flawed so they dont use it anymore.

If you are like me, and you have High-Risk HPV (if your partner has it, you almost definitely have it too) theres several things you can do. While there’s no cure, you can make sure the female in the relationship is getting a pap smear regularly. That both of you are seeing an oral specialists at least once every six months (you will need to see an oral medicine speicialist – you can see them at am most major college universities for about $150 without insurance – prob only $15 with insurance – or see an ENT – Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor. The Oral Medicine Specialists can detect papalomas in the mouth for the mouth cancer and the ENT can detect problems in your throat for throat cancer). That you are checking your mouths regularly for any symptoms of oral cancer (I know I already mentioned that theres really not much to look for but what you can see is any patchy area that is either white or red in your mouth. All the cells in your mouth replace themselves every 2 weeks so if you notice something that doesn’t heal within 2 weeks, see a doctor IMMEDIATELY!!!!). If you have trouble swallowing, this may be an early sign of throat cancer. It often isn’t painful or if it is, will feel like a normal soar throat. This is why it often goes undetected until too late.

For those of you who arent infected yet (to your knowledge-I know its hard to tell with the lack of symptoms and test) GET VACCINATED IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!!!!!! Gardasil (the major vaccine no the market right now) will protect you!!!! Yes it only protects from 4 strains and yes theres over 100 strains of hov, BUT those 4 strains are the ones that cause the cancers!!!! DO NOT fall victim to the hype from the religious naysayers. For whatever reason, they dont want this vaccine getting out and its the only thing that can save you. Research everything I’ve said if you are skeptical. You will see that this is ALL TRUE! The vaccine takes around 6 months to work so if you get it, DO NOT do ANY sexual activity with new partners. I’ve read that even passionate kissing can pass the oral HPV! Everyone needs to get vaccinated, even if you already have HPV, it can prevent you from getting any other strains on top of the strain you already have. Its like $60 total if you have insurance. GO GET IT NOW!!!!!! It protects from oral and genital HPV. If this post has helped you, let me know. I feel horribly guilty for passing my HPV onto several others already and this is the only way I can relieve some of that guilt is by helping others.
