Is It Okay To Masturbate While On HPV Treatment?
I want to ask, I am currently in the first HPV vaccination phase. Is it okay to masturbate? Thank you
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) is a virus that causes infection with the human papilloma virus, which can attack the genital skin (causing genital warts), cervix (causing cervical cancer) and penis (causing penile cancer). This virus is transmitted through sexual contact. Transmission increases in someone who likes to have multiple partners or has a partner who likes multiple partners. Prevention can be done by HPV vaccination before sexually active (especially women aged 10-55 years and men aged 10-26 years). Vaccines can also be given to someone who has had sexual intercourse, but must be declared free of HPV infection and uterine cancer from Pap smear examination.
The HPV vaccine is given in 3 times, namely the initial administration, 2 months after the initial administration and 6 months after the initial administration. During the vaccination period, you should avoid sexual intercourse. Sexual intercourse can also be done, but it must be in a safe way, namely being faithful to one partner and using a condom.
Meanwhile, there is no relationship between masturbation and the HPV vaccine. Masturbation is a sexual activity that is done by stimulating oneself, either with tools or without tools. However, you should use your time for positive things like cooking because this will increase your productivity. In contrast to masturbation, which can reduce life productivity and interfere with social life.
Thus, hopefully this is useful.
