6 Shocking Ways People Get Infected by HPV without Sexual Intercourse

The Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) is so common that at least 50 percent of sexually active people will have the infection at some time. However, new research findings have suggested that you could also get infected with it in 6 other shocking ways.

The Journal-Sexual Health published a report that analyzed 51 studies conducted on HPV. The result of the analysis suggested that HPV could be found in the genital tract of up to 51 percent of female virgins. This study points to an important fact that sexual intercourse is no longer the only way to contract the HPV.

Medically HPV is termed a wart virus, which means that any wart you see on your body is most likely due to HPV. Moreover, there are over 100 types of HPV that affect different tissues in the body; however, the HPV types that cause warts on your skin are different from the ones that cause genital warts or skin cancer.

Thankfully, only a small percentage of these HPV varieties lead to cervical cancer. The others just cause warts (genital or skin), which, although certainly troublesome and uncomfortable, are not dangerous.

Nevertheless, you should do everything you can to make sure HPV infections are not able to breed in your body to prevent any serious complications later in life and the best way to do that is to keep your immune quotient up at all times.

 

What are the Other Possible Ways to Contract HPV?

6 other ways you can get infected by HPV without sexual intercourse include:

  1. Kissing: Those who assumed that kissing is harmless, please think again…! HPV can spread if you come in contact with body fluids like saliva of the infected person. Thus, watch out before you act.
  2. Skin-to-Skin contact: Direct skin contact with the infected area, private parts, warts or broken skin of the infected person may cause the infection to spread. Even public places such as swimming pools or public toilets are hot breeding grounds for viruses such as HPV and may increase the risk of getting infected.
  3. Oral sex: Even though, oral sex doesn’t involve vaginal penetration, it can be one of the major causes for the spread of HPV. Condoms can be used, however, it doesn’t always provide complete prevention.
  4. Sharing a shaver: Razors or any objects such as needles that may penetrate your skin can possibly lead to an infection.  Thus, it is advisable to use separate razor blades or needles, or fresh disposables every time.
  5. Visiting a Spa or a Beauty Salon: Yes, the process of beautifying yourself can make you vulnerable to contracting infections such as HPV. Since warts appear anywhere on the body, they can be easily transferred to the beds increasing your chances of contracting it.
  6. Infected mother to child while pregnancy: An infected pregnant mother can spread the virus to her child through placenta, which connects them and is a medium for the transfer of body fluids from mother to child.

Preventing the Risk of HPV

HPV infections can be avoided by keeping in mind the following:

  • Using disposable needles, razors or objects that penetrate the skin
  • Practicing safe sex by using condoms
  • Avoiding skin contact if the infected person has warts or cuts on the skin
  • Limiting the number of sexual partners

Treatment for HPV

Conventional medicinal systems declare that there is no cure for HPV. Antiviral drugs can help in managing the symptoms with the help of topical application or oral medicines. Surgical removal of warts or radiotherapy can be an option in cases of cancer.

Medical research has indicated that not every type of HPV causes warts or other clinical manifestation. Many types don’t have any symptoms and often clear up without treatment. Having said that, it is actually the strength of your immune system that will determine whether a certain type of HPV will cause you any symptom or not. This means that if your immunity remains boosted at all times, then you can easily fend off the infection, even if it is HPV-6 and HPV-11, the types that can cause warts or the more dangerous strains- HPV-16 and HPV-18 that can cause certain cancers.

 

Growing research in the field of alternative medicine has highlighted numerous herbs and homeopathic attenuations that have shown promising results in boosting your immunity.

Some of the best natural ingredients tested for viral infections like HPV include:

  1. Hypericum Mysorense

Clinical evaluations have estimated that Hypericum mysorence may deflect viral proliferation by potentially inhibiting their replication cycle and boosting the immune system.

  1. Monolaurin

Monolaurin is a derivative of Lauric acid and studies on monolaurin have suggested that it potentially dissolves viral envelopes, which makes the infective agent more vulnerable to the immune system.

  1. Curcuma longa

Numerous studies have indicated that curcuma longa may help improve skin health and the functioning of the immune apparatus of your body.

  1. Green Tea Extract

Various phytochemical studies have suggested that green tea potentially improves the immune system, prevents proliferation of abnormal cells, and is actually the first botanical drug that has been approved by the United States FDA in the treatment of HPV external warts.  It appears to remarkably clear the presence of warts, stop the spread of the virus, and reduce the likelihood of recurrence for many patients.

  1. AHCC

Human and preclinical studies have suggested that daily consumption of AHCC –a readily available nutritional supplement potentially increases the number and/or activity of Natural Killer (NK) cells, and other immune cells that help the body fight off infections and block abnormal growth.
