HPV Virus And Cervical Cancer?
Good afternoon, I’m Yulita, a 19-year-old woman. I want to ask about female reproductive organs. Because I come from a broken home family, I got very little sex education as a child. Around the age of 10 years, because it was also due to pressure and stress from my family’s condition, I started trying things related to sex. It sounds embarrassing, but since that age I started trying to masturbate by inserting everything into my reproductive organs without thinking of the consequences such as the TV remote, toys, keys, perfume bottles, etc. I do it very often. but as I was growing up I just realized and started to worry about this. lately I started to be afraid of getting diseases, especially cervical cancer. is it possible? what other diseases are possible? please enlighten me, thank you.
Masturbation is actually a natural thing to do as long as it does not interfere with the life of the person concerned. But masturbation can be dangerous if done without regard to aspects of cleanliness. Inserting objects that are not clean into the vagina can cause irritation, injury, to infection of the vagina and uterus. In addition, if masturbation is done by alternating aids with others, it can transmit sexually transmitted diseases.
Associated with cervical cancer, cervical cancer is associated with HPV infection. HPV infection can be transmitted through risky intercourse. Symptoms of cervical cancer include post-intimate bleeding, abnormal vaginal discharge, pain during intercourse, and pelvic pain.
Cervical cancer can be prevented by the HPV vaccine. For women who have been active in intimate relationships or over 21 years, it is also advisable to have a pap smear test. Handling of cervical cancer depends on the condition of the patient for example with chemotherapy, radiotherapy, target therapy, and surgery.
Are there complaints? If there are no complaints, you don't need to worry first. You should adopt a healthy lifestyle, maintain vaginal hygiene, avoid free sex, and do not put objects that are not clean into the vagina. If you are already sexually active or you have a complaint, you can consult further with your obstetrician so that further examinations are needed as needed.
Hope it helps you,
