But back to our topic.
When you have sex with a new partner, you're
having sex with every partner they ever had
sex with, and every partner they had sex with,
and on and on…
Researchers have uncovered over 35 different
types of HPV that infect the genital tract,
and of these, at least 15 are known to lead
to cervical cancer. The most dangerous strains,
#16, #18, #31 and #45 account for over 70%
of all cervical cancers. HPV is also known
to cause cancer in the vulva, vagina, anus,
head and neck.
What Is HPV?
Genital HPV (human papilloma virus) is the
most common sexually transmitted disease and
it's believed that up to 70% of women will
have come into contact with HPV by the time
they're 60 years old.
Most women may never show any signs of HPV
infection and their immune system fights off
the virus. However, for a number of women,
certain strains of HPV can lead to genital
warts, which are a clear indication that she
has come into contact with a sexual partner
who has HPV.
While genital warts can be embarrassing, unsightly
and often painful, the strains of HPV that
are responsible for this type of infection
are different from the strains that can develop
into cervical cancer.
HPV causes normal cells to become abnormal.
These abnormalities can present in the form
of genital warts, which often appear within
weeks or months of infection. However, it's
the strains of HPV that lead to cervical cancer
which you need to be most concerned about.
These infections can lay dormant in your system
for many years and display no signs or symptoms.
But over time, the infection alters cells
in the cervix and by the time the cancer is
detected in HPV women, it can be too late.
How to Protect Yourself Against HPV.
Every year hundreds of thousands of women
die from cervical cancer that is directly
linked to HPV. The reason so many women die
from this form of cancer is because the symptoms
often go undetected for many years.
So it's important to do everything you can
to protect yourself from the risks associated
with HPV. Let's look at some of the steps
you can take:
1. A HPV vaccine is available to girls and
women between the ages of 9 and 26 which prevents
the most common strains of HPV in women. In
particular, the vaccine protects women against
the strains which can lead to cervical cancer.
This vaccine is most effective on women who
have had no previous sexual experiences.
2. The most effective HPV treatment is a regular
Pap smear to test for any abnormal cells in
the cervix. If you have the same sexual partner,
or you are not sexually active, a Pap smear
once a year is appropriate. After the age
of 30, your medical practitioner may suggest
you have a Pap smear every 2 or 3 years.
If you have a number of sexual partners, it
doesn't hurt to have a Pap smear every time
you start a new relationship. Sure, Pap smears
are a little uncomfortable, but a few moments
of feeling uncomfortable is worth it if the
results show abnormal cell development.
That wonderful new man you've just met may
be THE ONE, but he may also unwittingly be
THE ONE who is carrying a HPV infection he
isn't aware of, and it's easy to pass that
virus on to you.
3. Have a frank and open discussion with new
sexual partners. Although it may seem embarrassing,
it could save your life! If you have ever
had an outbreak of genital warts, this type
of infection can't be cured so although you
may not have any symptoms, you can easily
transmit the virus to your partner.
Similarly, he may have been exposed to the
virus and not know.
4. Practice safe sex. Although HPV is the
most common sexually transmitted disease,
it's only one of many, so practicing safe
sex by using a condom can help protect you
against a number of serious infections.
5. Keep yourself healthy and well. You can
reduce the risk of contracting HPV if your
immune system is strong enough to fight off
the infection. But let's face it: being healthy
isn't just about protecting yourself against
HPV – it's about protecting yourself from
a number of infections that can attack your
system if it's not in good shape.
HPV and women can be a deadly combination,
so ensure you read all the information you
can about the risks and know how to arm and
protect yourself at all times.
That's it! Thank you.
