HIV are considered one of the most number caused of death of people aside from cancer and other accident.
But aside from HIV, there is another sexually-transmitted disease that could also harm both men and women? It is also life-threatening and it could develop to cervical cancer for women.
Human Papilloma Virus [HPV], according to the National Cervical Cancer Coalition of the United States, this virus has more than 100 different types. Most of them are the types that focus on the human genital areas. There is approximately 80% chance that both sexes are likely to experience one in their life.
If ignored, HPV might lead to serious cases like a high risk for cervical pre-cancer and cancer.
The virus can spread by direct skin to skin contact. Being a sexually-transmitted disease, one should be aware of refraining from having intercourse with HPV positives.
The Condom Misconception: Human Papilloma Virus can spread through skin-to-skin contact with affected areas that are not covered by the condom.
However, most symptoms are not obvious.
To prevent HPV, Women that are over the 30 are advised to visit their gynecologist regularly as they have a weaker immune system. Even women who aren’t sexually active must still go to an expert for they still have risks of developing it in the next 10 to 20 years.
The advice is to continually have medical check-ups and practice safe intercourse.
