Hi, I'm an 18 year old female and just a few days back I was diagnosed with high risk HPV (type 16).Which is weird because before i got the results of the test, I had warts and I thought they only occurred in people with the low risk HPV. Anyway, I have a couple of concerns which are really stressing me out and it would be great if they could be clarified. 1) Does HPV lead to HIV? I am asking this because my OBGY had told me to get myself tested for HIV and my result was negative. But as HIV shows up only 3 months after you get it, should i get tested again cause I did have intercourse last month. All my previous sexual partners do NOT have HIV, but will it still develop in me because i have high risk HPV?
3) I have heard have in most cases high risk HPV does go away without leading to cancer. Could someone tell me what measures I can take to boost up my immunity and hopefully clear out the virus? I just turned 18 and finding out that I have the high risk HPV was a huge disappointment and I was really upset until I found out it can be cleared.
