HPV, let's talk........


The new CDC statistics state that 20 million ppl in the U.S. at any given time are infected. 50% of people who have had sex at anytime in their life have had HPV. There are 40 different HPV viruses. Many of these will go unnoticed because they have no immediate symptoms and will be passed from person to person unnoticed.
19% of women 50-59 are currently infected
27% of women 20-24
45% of women 14-19
This is not including the males who are infected.
These viruses present as flat, thin patches on the skin's surface. The virus appears in the vagina, anus, vulva, cervix, penis, head, mouth and throat, as well as on the skin. It is spread not only by intercourse and oral sex but also by skin to skin contact. There is mixed data as to whether or not the virus can be spread in jacuzzi or shallow water environments whereby infected people are sitting in shallow warm water with others who are not infected.
One of the fastest growing populations for STD's are the Seniors. People are now living longer and taking better care of themselves and staying more active physically. 60% of patients surveyed stated they were having sex at least once monthly. This age group has seen the fastest rate of HIV growth since 20002, due in part to limited use of condoms, thinning vaginal tissue that tears more easily and lack of screening.
Ways to Decrease Chances of Contracting HPV:
~abstinence is 100% effective
~limit sex partners
~regular pap smears and screening
~use of condoms; although, skin to skin thigh exposure will still allow transmission
~GARDASIL vaccinations, a series of 3 injections that protects against 4 types of the 40 known HPV viruses. The vaccine protects females against 2 types that account for 75% of cervical cancer cases. Males are protected against 90% of the genital HPV wart infections.
Michael Douglas has recently been very vocal in the viruses association with oral sex.

Good information about the HPV. I would,t know about the 19% of women 50-59, are currently infected, 27% of women 20-24, 45% of women 14-19. In this position we should take strong step about the HPV.
