HPV, also known as the Human Papillomavirus Is a sexually transmitted disease that could be spread through females and males. There are around 79 million Americans that are currently infected with HPV in the United States. There are several different types of symptoms that HPV could be related to, including one of the most common being genital warts. HPV could also lead to severe diseases and illnesses such as cervical cancer.

There are different types of HPV strains, and around 40 different types are transmitted through sexual contact. Many live their lives without even knowing that they have HPV. As of today, HPV does not have a treatment that completely cures the disease. There are temporary treatments for HPV symptoms, but there are also vaccines that try to prevent HPV and it’s symptoms.

For males, the vaccine is given usually before the child reaches age 12, but the latest they could receive the vaccine is at 26 years old.  The vaccine has been a tremendous advancement, preventing HPV in millions of children in America.
