HPV virus

The HPV virus which is known as the Human Papilloma Virus is a wart virus although all types do not produce warts.  HPV causes genital warts, plantar warts, and flat warts along with cervical dysplasia, vaginal dysplasia and cervical cancer.  It is possible that it may also be the cause of many other conditions such as vaginitis, vaginosis, vulvar vestibulitis, and infertility.   

Women are seeing in the past few years that they are being tested for the HPV virus during their annual Pap smear or when they do have an abnormal Pap the doctor will perform a colposcopy and test the tissue further to see if the virus is the cause of the abnormal tissue.  There is no way to determine the length of time a person has been carrying the virus.  It is known to lay dormant for many years before developing symptoms or going on to develop immunity.  A blood test may show a person has had an HPV infection in the past but can not determine if the virus is still present.  A person can be tested for the virus through an HPV dna test performed on a tissue sample of the abnormal tissue known as a Digene Hybrid Capture.

Transmission of HPV virus is not always through sexual contact but the types known as genital warts and cervical dysplasia are most commonly contracted through sexual intercourse, oral sex, anal sex or skin to skin contact.   This is then the reason it is considered an STD.  Some people will develop symptoms while many others remain carriers.  In both of these situations a person is considered contagious until they build full immunity to the types they have.   

The use of a natural remedy for treatment of the HPV virus helps you to achieve immunity faster or in cases that a person’s immune system is too compromised to build immunity normally.  Once immunity is accomplished a person can assume they are no longer contagious for that particular type or types in their system at the time of treatment.  However this does not protect a person against contracting new strains of the HPV virus to which they have not yet built immunity.
