The Risk Of Being Infected With HIV In Someone With A History Of Genital Warts?
Good morning, I used to have genital warts and now I have itchy vaginal discharge. Genital warts are HPV. What I’m asking is, can it affect HIV in the future? And how to be clean from the HPV virus? thank you.
Genital warts are caused by the HPV virus. Once exposed to the HPV virus, even though the warts have healed, this virus will remain in the body undetected and can recur at any time, either months or years later.
Genital warts and HIV are both sexually transmitted diseases, but they are caused by different viruses. Genital warts are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), and HIV is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). HPV does not cause HIV, but someone with HIV who has had HPV before may experience a more severe recurrence rate because HIV causes the immune system to weaken.
Because the HPV virus will remain in your body, it is impossible to completely clean it. But you can still do HPV immunization to prevent other types of HPV virus. To prevent genital warts and other sexually transmitted diseases, use condoms during sexual intercourse and be faithful to your partner.
