This virus spreads through sex, keep in mind

HPV i.e. Human papillomavirus is a very dangerous and fastest-spreading virus. Apart from this, its symptoms are also difficult to detect. How the HPV virus spreads and how to avoid it. It is very important to know this.

First of all, 80% of sexually active women and men suffer from it at some point in their life. The UK Public Health Service, NHS and the American Association of Sexual Health research it. It is the most sexually transmitted disease in the United States. According to a national survey published in the journal JAMA Oncology, half of the 2000 men involved in sex had the infection.

Another important thing is that HPV can cause 6 types of cancer. HPV accounts for 99 percent of uterine cancer, 84 percent for anal cancer, 47 percent for gender cancer. At the same time, its infection also causes vaginal, vaginal, throat and mouth cancer. More than a hundred varieties of HPV viruses have been detected. 30 of these varieties affect the reproductive organs. HPV-16 and HPV-18 viruses are the most dangerous. It is responsible for more than 70 percent of uterine cancer. Most people are occasionally infected with HPV, but their immune system protects them from the virus.

Third, there is usually no symptom of HPV infection. For this reason, it is not easy to detect. In women, HPV infection can be detected by examining a sample of their uterine cells. For this, the help of two types of investigation is taken. One is vaginal cytology i.e. cellular examination and second pap test or pepnikolai examination. But men still have not found any right way to detect the infection of this virus.

According to the NHS, "although there is no way to detect HPV that can be relied upon. There is a lot of difficulty in treating it due to no symptoms of the virus". If there is a serious risk of anal HPV infection in a person, anal cytology is performed to detect it.

The fourth and last important thing is that there is a vaccine to protect against the HPV virus for the youth. Many such vaccines are present in the market. Many of these help to avoid the very severe HPV-16 and HPV-18 viruses. A second newest vaccine protects up to 90 percent of HPV-associated cancers. In many countries, the government gives these vaccines to adolescent girls from time to time.
