THE CURE IS BEING TESTED RIGHT NOW!!!!!

There are several clinical trials going on to test what is called “theraputic vaccines” for HPV. They basically boost your immune system so you can fight off the HPV.

You have heard of the HPV vaccine right? And the pap smears are a screening test to find serious cervical disease which is then readily treatable. What do you think is not being taken seriously?

Ya it sucks that the shot to cure it is only for 14 year olds. Im 30 I don’t have it but they should give the shot to every one not just kids.

Most viruses do not have a cure. A vaccination is available to help prevent a large % of types that cervical cancer and 2 types that cause genital warts.
