I got my rapid hiv and hepatitis test back and it was all clear (yes you were right thankfully!)
But I am no worried about HPV, I hear there are no clear ways of knowing about this and that there are some nasty strains of it.
We discussed a viral sore throat I had 7 days after potential exposure, I still have this 1 week and 3 days on although it has got a lot better. It doesnt hurt to swallow or anytthing and i have no other symptoms. It is just a big uncomfortable and I still feel a build up in my throat of something but its not unpleasant just not usual.
I am worried about penis, anal and neck cancer as a possible result of HPV infection. I have had anal fissures and a haemorroid in the past about a year ago but this week it has been a little bit uncomfortable and I did bleed once after voiding the other day.
i thought that was for girls only?
ive really learnt my lesson. condoms all the way.
would cancers latch on so fast after an exposure or do they typically take time to develop after infection?if so, will the vaccine help post infection?
so taking the vaccine post infection can get rid of hpv or just prevent cancers?
Ive looked up places to get it in the UK and they say gardasil has no effect on active hpv infections.
Yes it can prevent them but what if I already have them? That is my concern. The vaccine wont help post-exposure?
There is apparently no test for it so there isn't much I can do. But if I get a sore throat one week after exposure, you wouldn't think that this is the onset of throat cancer as a result of HPV??
ok thanks, XXXXX XXXXX to find somewhere in the uk that will give it to me, but i will persist. Ive just been reading about strains that cause penile, anal and throat cancer. Why does this happen if our immune system can deal with it?
