Let’s also look into discounts for cervical cancer vaccines and learn about the effectiveness of them.



Types of HPV Infections and Their Origins

HPV, also known as Human Papillomavirus, has as many as 150 different viruses that can infect the human reproductive system. HPV stems from sexual activity and is spread, and infected through genital organs and skin contact. Both men and women have a chance of being infected:

  • HPV Type 6 and Type 11: can cause genital warts in men
  • HPV Type 16 and Type 18: can infect the cervix, and has caused over 70% of cervical cancer among women

A study conducted by the University of Hong Kong found that over half of the local college students interviewed did not know that both men and women could be vaccinated against HPV. Associated with the lack of awareness of the vaccine, the HPV vaccination rate in Hong Kong is low. But did you know that both men and women can be vaccinated with the HPV 9-in-1 vaccine?

HPV Prevention Methods

A) Regular Pap smear examination

An examination can be completed in just a few minutes. The doctor or nurse puts the speculum into the vagina and then uses a small wooden scraper or a plastic brush to take a sample of cells on the surface of the cervix. They will place the cells onto a glass sheet or into a liquid for storage, and finally, pull out the speculum. This test is suitable for sexually active women older than 25 years old. It is best to receive a Pap smear for 2 consecutive years. If the results are normal, they can be tested again after 3 years until they are 65 years old.

B) Regular STD testing

The STD test is applicable to all regularly sexually active individuals. Even if they have only experienced one sexual partner, they should still go to clinics for STD testing regularly to protect themselves, their partners, and their next generations. Every year, around 12,000 people in Hong Kong are infected with a variety of STD through sexual contact. However, the initial symptoms of the transmitted diseases are not apparent and may even not show any symptoms. Only an early STD test can be used to determine whether they have the disease or not.

C) Practice safe sex

HPV is mainly spread through sexual contact, so using condoms during sex and avoiding multiple sexual partners will help reduce the chance of contracting HPV.
