  3. 3. What is HPV infection?<br />HPV stands for human papillomavirus <br />HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection.<br />There are more than 40 HPV types that can infect the genital areas of males and females.<br />Most people who become infected with HPV do not even know they have it.<br />
  4. 4. What is HPV infection?<br />Most people with HPV do not develop symptoms or health problems from it.<br />In most cases the body’s immune system clears HPV naturally within two years.<br />certain types of HPV can cause genital warts in males and females.<br />these types can also cause warts in the throat -- a condition called recurrent respiratory papillomatosis or RRP. <br />
  5. 5. How do people get HPV?<br />HPV is passed on through genital contact, most often during vaginal, oral, and anal sex. <br />HPV can be passed on between straight and same-sex partners, even when the infected partner has no signs or symptoms.<br />A person can have HPV even if years have passed since he or she had sexual contact with an infected person.<br />Most infected people do not realize they are infected or that they are passing the virus on to a sex partner.<br />
  6. 6. How does HPV cause genital warts and cancer?<br />HPV can cause normal cells on infected skin to turn abnormal. <br />Most of the time, you cannot see or feel these cell changes.<br />The body fights off HPV naturally and the infected cells then go back to normal. But in cases when the body does not fight off HPV, HPV can cause visible changes in the form of genital warts or cancer.<br />Warts can appear within weeks or months after getting HPV. Cancer often takes years to develop after getting HPV.<br />
  7. 7. How common is HPV and related diseases?<br />Approximately 20 million Americans are currently infected with HPV. Another 6 million people become newly infected each year. HPV is so common that at least 50% of sexually active men and women get it at some point in their lives.<br />Genital warts-About 1% of sexually active adults in the U.S. have genital warts at any one time.<br />Cervical cancer-Each year, about 12,000 women get cervical cancer in the U.S.<br />
  8. 8. How can people prevent HPV?<br />The only sure way to prevent HPV is to avoid all sexual activity. <br />Vaccines can protect males and females against some of the most common types of HPV.<br />For those who choose to be sexually active, condoms may lower the risk of HPV.<br />
  9. 9. Is there a treatment for HPV or related diseases?<br />There is no treatment for the virus itself, but there treatments for the diseases that HPV can cause<br />Visible genital warts can be removed by the infected person by medications.<br />Cervical cancer is most treatable when it is diagnosed and treated early. Prevention is always better than treatment<br />
