Is there a cure or even a pill for hpv


The Human papillomavirus (HPV) is very common and most people never get any visible symptoms. We find that most people get rid of the virus within 18 months. Usually it comes and goes without the person ever knowing.

Currently there is no pill available to treat HPV but there are treatments available if someone has had their body affected by HPV e.g. they have genital warts, changes to their cervix etc…

There is also a vaccine available that will protect people from the most common types of HPV that affect the genital area. Have a look at this link for more information.

Also have a look at our HPV page for more information.
