Sexual Intercourse is different from Sexual Contact!

One is penetrative, the other is not, let’s call it ‘Merry-go-rounding’🤦🏽‍♀️

Just a reminder that you can get HPV infection from Sexual contact as much as from Intercourse.

This means a Virgin can contact HPV!

RT!
HPV- Human Papilloma Virus is a viral STI with many strains. Low risk ( Causing Genital warts) and High risk (Causing Cancers: Cervical, Penile, Anal, Oral).

All it takes is for an uninfected person to come in close body contact with infected area. Do condoms offer protection?👇🏽
Use condoms. They are protective, from STIs. And also prevent unwanted pregnancy.
However, when it comes to HPV, condoms don’t offer complete protection. This is Cos, they can only cover a limited area of the genitalia. And contact with any infected area can lead to infection.

[Thread] This day 7 years ago, I was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer. I was only 26. It is a hard day for me but I decided to look back on the good and the bad from the last 7 years, to show how far I have come.. ( using pictures!)
This photo was taken 1 week after diagnosis. Shane, who was 4 at the time, was graduating playschool. Thats Evan beside him, only 2. 5 minutes before this photo, I was on the phone arranging my PET scan, Im upset here but I dont show it
This is taken just after my radical hysterectomy. I am absolutely wired. Unfortunately, I go downhill after this and start to bleed A LOT, emergency CT and blood transfusions follow. I was in hospital alot longer than I hoped

I never thought I'd write about getting an IUD, let alone for @NEJM, but I did. During the Kavanaugh hearings I saw ugly, ugly power pushing down & down but I also looked up to see an immense, glittering kind of strength at every turn. nejm.org/doi/full/10.10…
A huge thank you to some amazing #women in #EM who gave me courage & advice when I was nervous to pursue this. I was worried abt writing on a sensitive topic esp during res interviews @LizSamuels @meganranney @choo_ek @darakass Thank you for making it so much easier to be brave
And thank you to @Jeff__Riddell and @TakuTaira, my mentors who I met at @lacuscdem who picked up the phone and called me immediately when I emailed them for their advice. I'm so grateful to be joining this specialty.

Prevention
1) By Early Vaccination against Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), best before sexual exposure. Ages 9-26👌.
Vaccinate your girl child. Dear young women you too.

Note: Boys also benefit from HPV vaccination as it prevents them from Genital warts and Penile Cancer
#DrZobo
2) Screening. Cervical Screening for the sexually exposed.
-Pap Smear: takes 3 mins
- VIA (Visual Inspection with Acetic Acid) takes only 1 min
-HPV testing to make sure the strains are not in you already.
