Response:

HPV or the Human Papilloma Virus is a common sexually transmitted disease that can cause genital warts and cervix cancer. There is no known cure for HPV but there are a variety of treatment options and vaccinations for individuals who are sexually active or suffering from a HPV infection. HPV is a general term that covers hundreds of unique sub-strains, each with their own genetic profile. While there are no known cures to HPV, the good news is that the human body is usually able to clear infections over the course of a few years and eventually heal completely. All sexually active individuals are at risk of coming in contact with HPV so the CDC recommends vaccination (such as Gardasil) to prevent the most dangerous strains from infecting you.
