HPV infection and psychosexual outcome
V Annual International Congress on Human Reproduction on "Family Reproductive Health", Moscow, Russia, January 18-21, 2011
Genital Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infection is the most commonly occurring sexually transmitted viral infection in humans. It is highly prevalent and increasing, due to promiscuity and unprotected sex. HPV is a wide family of DNA viruses, which may cause benign skin and mucosal tumours (genital, anal or oral warts), intraepithelial neoplasias and/or malignant cancers in different organs.
The evidence of psychosexual consequences of HPV related genital warts and intraepithelial lesions is growing. Clinicians should consider the psychosexual outcome as a critical part of HPV infection in women.
