Often in practice I am faced with frantic questions about 1-2 weeks after the annual gynecologic exam and patients are rushing in, sending messages, and calling because they have screened positive for HPV. Often they get their results automatically so of course the next stop is Google and have you ever googled HPV? Trust me you don't want to especially not the images! Many women and men are unfamiliar with how common this virus is and according to the Centers for Disease Control it is actually the most commonly transmitted sexually transmitted infection. The problem is that when it's time to slip into the sheets it's not something that you can usually see, touch, or know it's there. So the key lies in education that the virus is out there and unlike make believe monsters it really does exist!
