Pap Smear Examination In Women With A History Of HPV?
Regards. I was sentenced to have a condylom and underwent a laser. Before being sentenced to condylom, I was ordered to test for HIV and HBsag and all of the results were negative. But I got the info that the condylom can be lasered but the HPV virus is still active in the body. Do you need to undergo Pap smear? Because I’m also looking for information about the cellphone that causes cervical cancer? Please get the info.
Condyloma is a term that refers to an infection of the genitals, condyloma itself is divided into 2, namely condyloma acuminata or what is known as genital warts caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), and another is condyloma lata which is associated with syphilis.
So that is that any type of condyloma is closely related to diseases that can be transmitted through sexual contact, including HIV, hepatitis (for hepatitis B the examination is HBsAg). HPV infection even though the warts have been treated does not automatically kill the virus, because the virus remains in the body and can reactivate at any time and cause new warts or even spread it to other people, so what do you say that the virus is still less active? right, but at any time can be active again.
In addition to causing genital warts and warts, the HPV virus can also cause cervical cancer (cervix), you can get vaccinations to prevent cervical cancer. Pap smear examination is recommended to be carried out every 3 years for women who are over 21 years old even though they have never had sex, especially for those who are sexually active, especially those who have been infected with HPV even though there are no cervical cancer symptoms such as abnormal bleeding from the vagina outside the menstrual cycle, or the presence of blood during intercourse.
