HPV and cervical cancer.

How many of you know someone who had/has it or has it yourself? Im just doing some research. About 8 out of 10 of my friends had HPV at one point. Scary, huh?

Im very interested in this research, and hope for some scientific answers in the media soon.

  • well if they HAD it then they still have it.. its not at one point.. that means 8 out of 10 of your friends still HAVE hpv.

  • What i mean is.. It NEVER goes away.. once you have it, you have it forever..
    I know one girl who has it.. thats all.. at least thats the only one i know who will admit it.

  • Well my story should be interesting to you. My husband has it but I dont. I was checked 5 times since we've gotten back together. (Before we got married) Negative. I know it can come out later but as of now I don't have it.

  • Genital wart are there forever, but the cancerous kinds can be suppressed out of the body naturally. I had high-grade displasia(precancer) had the cells cut out, now I DO NOT HAVE IT. Its only forever if its low-grade displasia (genetal warts) Just for clarity there are over 100 kinds of HPV. Some are worse than others.
