Is white thick vaginal discharge an indiaction of HPV?

by Rachel on August 19, 2011

I was diagnose with HPV 3 year ago. Last year my pap smear came back normal. But I not sure if the change in discharge is due to HPV or due to hormonal changes… I was tacking birth control pill, and recently got off it.

I am really worried…

Thick white vaginal discharge is normal. It can be an indication that you are ovulating or close to starting your period. Just be sure you get your pap smear every year and you should have nothing to worry about.

Is the discharge watery and white or thick and clumpy and white? If it’s watery and white then you don’t have anything to worry about and it’s normal vaginal discharge and the body’s way of keeping your vagina clean. If it’s white and thick or looks clumpy and white, then it’s a yeast infection and should be treated with Monistat 7 (not the 1, 3, or 5 day treatments which are resistant to many types of yeast infections). If the discharge smells like fish, bleach like, cleaning chemicals, or bowel (poop smelling) then you need to see a gynocologist as you have an infection.

There is no actual symptoms of HPV, and white and thick vaginal discharge has got nothing to do with the HPV. However try to go for another pap smear test, coz this is they way your gyne would be able to see if there is a problem ( Virus). Women who get their yearly Pap Smear test are the most likely to survive the disease when it is caught early as the cells are in the pre-cancerous stages. Regular Pap Smears can detect the cells before they turn to cancer. There are treatments for pre-cancerous cells (cervical dysplasia). It can take many years for the pre-cancerous cells to develop after the woman has been infected with HPV. Women between the ages of 25 – 35 are diagnosed with the condition. With proper and immediate treatment, most cases will not develop into cervical cancer.

Ohh by the way there is this drug they develop in 2006 a vaccine to prevent HPV, I guess you could try it (Gardasil ) but this could be used for women at the ages of 9-26. Although, they can still be effective if you are sexually active. I hope this info helps.

I forgot whether symptoms occur or not can depend on the type of HPV virus involved in the infection. There are more than 100 types of HPV. Some HPV types are associated with genital warts, although the warts are not always visible.
