What is HPV, as described by your Unanderra Doctor?
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is a group of virus known for their highly contagious attack. These viruses are popular for causing fatal HPV-related cancer. Most HPVs spread through direct skin contact during sexual activities with someone who has already had the virus in his/her body.
Rural areas become the most HPV-infected areas around the world. From the latest Unanderra Family Doctors research, we found out this virus will infect around 75% of our population, at least once during their lifetime. While the symptom is mostly asymptomatic, the treatment only needs 12 to 24 months to cure a patient even though there is no 100% guarantee the virus will absent from the body. Any virus that remains in the body will pose as future threat as it may develop to cancers.
Gardasil vaccine provides the best protection against four HPV genotypes. Despite the limited protection against genotype 6, 11, 16, and 18, this vaccine can help you reduce the infection risk to zero after taking three doses of this medication before any sexual activity with HPV-suspected person. The best time to take the injections are 2 and 6 months after the first injection.
