The Gynaecology Clinic is all about your health and well-being. We have a team of experienced gynaecology specialists to help combat HPV screening and HPV test and several others sexually transmitted diseases you might have.
HPV infections are one of the most common sexually transmitted infection. Anyone who is sexually active can get HPV, but you are most likely to get it if you have had many sex partners or have had sex with someone who has had many partners. But what exactly is HPV?
It is an acronym for Human papillomaviruses. They are a group of related viruses capable of causing warts on different parts of your body. There are more than 200 types, and about 40 of those types affect the genitals. HPV can be contracted through sexual contact with an infected person. It can put you at risk for cancer. HPV is a common virus that can infect teens and adults.
There are two categories viz:
There’s also the Cutaneous (skin) HPV type capable of causing common warts on the skin, such as on the arms, chest, hand and feet.
Some persons develop genital warts from HPV infection, but others have no symptoms. Most high-risk HPV infections disappear within 1 to 2 years and do not cause cancer. However, some infections can persist for many years. Those infections, if not treated can change the cells and become cancerous. But the good news is that there are vaccines that can prevent infection with the types of HPV that most commonly cause cancer.
At Gynaecology Clinic, we carry out Pap tests to diagnose changes in the cervix that might lead to cancer. Along with HPV tests, we use Pap tests in cervical cancer screening.

Your immune system can cause genital HPV infections to go away. The cell changes caused by an HPV infection can be treated, but the virus itself cannot be treated.
