  • I have it & had no idea. No symptoms. Nothing. You usually cant tell you have it that I know of.

  • Depends on the strain of HPV you have. I have the strains that are link to cervical cancer other strains cause you to have genital warts. You can have it for years and never know. Most times women under 35 I was told by my Gyno it just goes away, but it is a virus and it is uncureable. You can have a normal sex life, but you will spread the virus. There is no way to determine where and when you got, most paps dont even test for HPV unless you have had a abnormal pap then they test for it.

  • By the way 8 out of 10 women have HPV. So there are many more women who have it then dont have.

  • i got the gardasil shot as soon as it was released so i don't have it but every single one of my friends actually does have it. two of them have the gential warts strain and two have the cancer strain and i'm not sure what the other ones have.

  • I have it, no symptoms, no bleeding. It's so common... and Gardasil doesn't protect from EVERY kind of HPV, just a couple strains.

  • I had the strand that goes along with cervical cancer. I had it for about 2.5 years. I had no symptoms other than painful (deep penetration) intercourse. That's how I found out at a doctors visit. I had numerous procedures to keep the cancer from spreading. Thank God it was successful. Anyway, it is a virus and will go away on it's own in time if your lucky.
