Natural Preventive Measures For Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Infection

By Alon Calinao Dy: There are preventive measures for Human papillomavirus, also known as HPV virus. Men and women do not know whether they are or not infected with HPV virus. It usually has no symptoms and symptoms of it is the development of warts in the genital regions, vagina, cervix, and penis that may spread through genital contact and both oral-oral and oral-genital routes, skin-to-skin contact, and high risk to the individual who has multiple-sex partners and couples in same-sex relationship.

According to the Centers For Disease Control And Prevention (CDC), "Human papillomavirus (pap-ah-LO-mah-VYE-rus) (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted virus in the United States. Almost every sexually active person will acquire HPV at some point in their lives."

Very often, our strong immune system suppresses HPV virus and heals on its own without the usage of anti-HPV creams or whatsoever. Nevertheless, safe sexual practice like abstinence and monogamy are strongly recommended to prevent from acquiring HPV in the future. HPV vaccines are also available in the market for young men and women before becoming sexually active.

Many studies indicate the use of green tea extract and curcumin is an effective way to fight off HPV infection in our body. Others as well say that oregano oil, Echinacea, mushroom, Thuja, Goldenseal, and garlic are natural cures for the HPV virus.

Risks of HPV infection in Men and Women

The truth is, there is no cure for HPV virus and once you already have it, you would carry it for the rest of your life. Green tea extract, curcumin, and others are simply preventive measures, but they don't actually kill the virus.

Once you are a carrier, you are at risk of various cancers in the oral cavity, throat, cervix, vagina, penis, and anus. 
To remain healthy, do not smoke since smoking will trigger more cancer cells within your body system, and always perform a safe sexual practice. 

Do not make an intercourse if you have infected warts to protect your partner. Consult to the nearest doctor who has a specialty of gynecology or urology and be examined.
