For Your Information: Debunking Common Myths about HPV

Human Papillomavirus, or HPV for short, is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the US, and it has been at the center of much debate over the last few years. Despite the prevalence of this disease though, the general public still does not know or understand much about HPV. With all the talk about cancer risks, child vaccinations, and potential adverse side effects, it’s easy to understand how people can get confused and develop misconceptions about the disease, its prevention, and treatment. The image below tackles common myths about who can contract HPV, ways HPV can be spread, HPV’s connection to cancer, and symptoms of the disease.

As they say, “Knowledge is power”; the more we learn and are taught about this disease, its risks, symptoms, treatments, and prevention, the better equipped we will be to make more informed decisions moving forward. Check out the short video below for a quick overview of HPV, and for more detailed information, check out the CDC’s website.

    I'm so thankful you all shared information about HPV. Such a scary, and unfortunately, all too common STD.
