HPV is the most common STD (Sexually Transmitted Diseases) carried through anal, oral or genital sex. Sometimes the body is able to fight virus within one or two years. But, often some HPV virus not cleared from body can cause genital warts.

Strains of HPV virus can lead to cancers in other form. Strains such as 16 and 18 mainly cause cervical cancer. Vaccinations can enhance immunity to these types of strains and prevent cancerous cells from growing.

Two types of cervical vaccinations are Gardasil and Cervarix. The vaccines can recover immunity by initiating antigens into the immune system. These antigens cannot cause HPV infection.
