HPV is a common viral infection affecting approximately 8 out of 10 individuals in their lifetime. It is passed via sexual intercourse including vaginal, anal and oral. It can also be passed via skin to skin sexual contact.
There are over 100 different strains of the HPV virus. The majority of HPV strains are low risk and may cause no symptoms, or may cause warts on or around the genitals, anus, mouth, or throat. There are higher risk strains including HPV 16 and HPV 18 that can cause different types of cancer including cervical, anal, penial, head, neck and throat cancers.
HPV affects both males and females, and both can develop HPV related cancers.
Although it is not possible to completely protect yourself against HPV, there are things that you can do to significantly reduce the risk including using condoms although as condoms do not cover the whole genital area they are not completely effective.
The most effective source of protection is to get the HPV vaccination which will protect you against the most common and most high risk strains. It is a highly effective vaccination.
If you are a woman it is also important to also have regular cervical screening for cervical cancer.
At London Vaccination Clinic we provide the Gardasil 9 vaccination.
Gardasil 9 protects against 9 types of HPV: 6, 11, 16, 18, 31, 33, 45, 52 and 58. Types 16 and 18 account for more than 80% of cervical cancer cases in the UK. Types 31, 33, 45, 52 and 58 cause an additional 15% of cervical cancers.
