Hi i was diagnosef...

Hi i was diagnosef with hpv over 5 yrs ago and while i go regularly to my gyno for annual checkups, she’s always told me that the virus goes away on its own. Im 53, will it take longer to go away because im older? Is there anything i can do nutritionally to help?

Doctor's Assistant: How old is she? What symptoms is she having?

Im 53 and have no symptoms.

Doctor's Assistant: When was her last pap test or pelvic exam? Any irregular results from past exams?

6 months ago and no irregularities

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in her medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had several colposcopies done when i was first diagnosed but all was well and i havent had to go back for a colposcopy for over 2 yrs

Doctor's Assistant: Back (~medical bodypart)

Sorry i dont understand?

Thank you for your patience.

Yes, HPV usually goes away in about 2 years. But a low nutritional level or poor health may cause the HPV to remain longer. It is not related to age but to the health status.

Please take a multivitamin supplement to improve your immunity. Regular exercises and meditation also help in boosting the immunity.

I hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
