There is no cure for HPV, so treatment aims at controlling outbreaks of warts — if you have a strain that causes visible warts.
HPV vaccine is routinely recommended for girls 11-12 years of age. Doctors may give it to girls as young as 9 years.
It is important for girls to get HPV vaccine before their first sexual contact – because they have not been exposed to HPV. For these girls, the vaccine can prevent almost 100% of disease caused by the four types of HPV targeted by the vaccine. However, if a girl or woman is already infected with a type of HPV, the vaccine will not prevent disease from that type.

From what I understand, HPV is so common that its not really a matter of not getting or getting it … it’s a matter of having a good enough immune system to suppress or clear it. Supposedly, 80% of women will contract HPV in their lifetime. My doc says that most people clear it before they develop symptoms or face problems. Some people’s immune systems just don’t do it. I’m one of these people as well — just got diagnosed with high risk abnormal cell changes …

get lots of rest
eat a healthy diet with lots of vitamin content
exercise
decrease stress
limit booze & cigarettes
maintain activities & relationships that make you feel happy

your immune system will rev up!

also, i read a recent article that suggested that folic acid may specifically benefit cervical health, if you have the kind of hpv like i do that can cause cervical cancer.

Instead of spending the rest of your life taking useless medicine, I call them useless because you will continue to get an out break and use those painful medication to burn off the wart or you will take a pill but it wont keep the outbreak away. No it’s not the end of the world. And most people in america do have it. They have it because they don’t know that you can heal yourself from it. you really don’t have to live with it. A lot of people would say no you can’t it’s forever. Well I thought, that can’t be true, we can go to the moon, create massive bombs, dig on the ocean floor but we can’t heal from HPV, that doesn’t make sense. So I found dherbs.com and did there Anti Viral Kit and healed myself from HPV I went back to my doctor and two others and got tested by all three and there was no trace of HPV in my system they were shock. And they told me what ever I’m doing keep up the good work. So you don’t have to live with it.

There is no oral medication for HPV (human papilloma virus). There is an oral medical for Genital herpes but there is no anti-viral for HPV.

You may want to talk with your doctor about the cervical cancer vaccine Gardasil prevents 4 genital HPV types two high risk HPV types 16 and 18 and two low risk HPV types 6 and 11. Cervarix prevents two high risk HPV types 16 and 18. The vaccines can’t not prevent HPV types you have all ready acquired. The vaccines do not treat HPV types you have already acquired. You may not have acquired all 4 genital HPV types Gardasil prevents or both of the HPV types Cervarix prevents.

Treatments are geared to the removal of abnormal cells or actual visual external warts.

HPV is a common STI about 50% of the populations carries a genital HPV type. They are 40 genital HPV types.

In most people the virus never shows as abnormal cell changes or the expression of external warts. Most people that carry the virus don’t know they carry it. It can take months to years for a person with external visible warts to shows as the abnormal tissue growth of a wart.

A doctor may want to wait and see if your body control low grade lesions of the cervix. Most women with low grade lesion will have the virus regress in a year or two.

High grade lesions most often are treated.

You can do some things to help your body fight the virus: eat a balanced diet 5 to 7 servings of fruits and veggie each day, get good sleep – our bodies cells heal in stage four sleep most people need 7 to 8 hours of sleep each day, reduce stress, limit alcohol no more than 3 one ounce servings a week and constant use of condoms. Condoms can help the virus regress, even if you are with the same sex partner condoms can help and condoms do aid in the healing of the cervix. In a long term relationship condoms until you have at least 2 clear paps with HPV testing. Don’t smoke.

If you do not understand everything your doctor told you when he talked to you about your diagnosis…ask for a copy of your pathology reports…searching this information on line will give you a wealth of knowledge about what is going on with your body. Read links from reputable sites The National Cancer Institute, the American Cancer Society the CDC are some good one. I have listed some of the links that helped me. Once you understand your diagnosis you may want to make an appointment with your doctor…carry a list of questions. Once you understand more about the virus it will make communication with your doctor much easier.
