Human Papillomavirus Consequences: Prevent Diseases

Human papillomavirus is a sexually transmitted virus, a DNA virus that affects the mucous membranes of the genital area and that of the mouth and throat. Human papillomavirus has many different types; about 40 types can infect you while you have unprotected sex. A person can suffer from more than one HPV type at the same time. Some types are harmless and will go away on their own. However, other types might be present within the human system for years, withour any symptoms – so having no warts does not mean that you are safe. Over time, some HPV subtypes may cause health problems, from genital warts to various cancers.

Human papillomavirus can cause the following conditions:
·         genital warts
·         cervical cancer
·         vaginal cancer
·         penile cancer
·         throat cancer

Cancers are furtive diseases. Cancer prevention is less tangible than preventing cardiovascular diseases. According to studies, you can prevent HPV related cancers (and other cancers) if you do not smoke, do not drink alcohol, do not get overweight, change your eating habits i.e. you consume more vegetables and fruits, less red meat, processed foods, artificial ingredients and sweets; and work out on a regular basis.

Cervical Cancer
You might not have symptoms for a while, until the latest stages by the time the cancer cells spread through the lymph vessels and blood vessels. It is a life-threatening condition.
Human papillomavirus infection can lead to cervical cancer, so you want to avoid HPV infection in the first place.
Always use a condom, however, keep in mind that human papillomavirus can be present at the whole genital area, at places where the condom does not cover the body. Do not have sex with a new partner whom you just got to know and whom you cannot trust.
Get vaccinated against human papillomavirus. Cervarix and Gardasil are effective protection against cervical cancer.

Screening Is Vital
Well before you can notice any symptoms, the first signs are already there within your body. A gynecologist can detect such issues. Get a Pap test or an HPV DNA test. At this stage, you have good chances to heal.

Penile Cancer
Penile cancer has even higher risks than cervical cancer. According to studies, it is possible to prevent penile cancer.
Good hygiene is a must. If you are uncircumcised, you are more at risk of infection. Time and again you must pull back the foreskin to clean the area underneath.
If you are circumcised, you have less chance to get infected with human papillomavirus or to infect your partners with it.

Condom makes sexual activity safer, however, if you have sex with an infected person, you are still at risk: human papillomavirus can be found at the whole genital area, not only within the genitals.
Get vaccinated! Every vaccine means protection from subtypes 16 and 18, the most dangerous HPV types.

For men, Gardasil and Gardasil 9 vaccines are available in the United States. It would be best if you got vaccinated at an early age, at 11 or 12.

Blocked Fallopian Tubes – A Common Cause for Infertility in Women

One of the most common causes of infertility in women today is the blocked fallopian tubes which doesn’t allow the flow of eggs to the uterus and block the sperm to reach the egg which of course prevents fertilization and pregnancy. According to some statistics more than 35% of women that have problems with infertility have this condition. While some cases of fallopian tube blockage can be solved relatively quickly and easily and women can get pregnant fast, in other cases women are subjected to various tests and treatments to become pregnant, but it seems that nothing can help them achieve their desire. So what exactly causes this blockage in the fallopian tubes?

Each month, when ovulation begins, a single egg is released from the ovary into the fallopian tube where it is supposed to be inseminated in case the woman had an unprotected sex. No matter what happens (whether she is inseminated or not), this ovum travels down the oviduct and reaches the uterus. In some women there is possibility that only one of the tubes is blocked and in order to increase the likelihood of conception, doctors often prescribe hormone therap. In addition, there is a possibility that the fallopian tube is not blocked entirely, but only partially which can lead to ectopic pregnancy and this type of pregnancy can lead to many complications in case the women decides to choose abortion and complications when she decides to get pregnant again.

So, pregnancy is possible only if there is one fallopian tube that is blocked, but if both tubes are clogged there is no chance for pregnancy. In this case, the next step is to determine what is causing the blockage. When we talk about symptoms it is good to point out that they are very rare and in most cases they don’t exist. When it comes to other similar problems like lack of ovulation, women can easily notice the symptoms such as irregular menstrual cycles. Blockage of the fallopian tubes can sometimes be noticed through unusual abdominal pain and vaginal discharge. But remember that most women won’t notice anything wrong with their reproductive system.

The most common cause of blocked fallopian tubes is cervicitis or swelling/inflammation of the cervix. The most common cause of this inflammation is one of the common sexually transmitted diseases such as HPV, Chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes and trichomoniasis. You should keep in mind that cervicitis is not caused only by these diseases, but some bacterial inflammation can be the cause too. Unfortunately even after treating these diseases one of the results of their effects are blocked fallopian tubes.


Hysterosalpungography or HSG is a procedure in which a certain amount of contrast fluid is inserted in the cervix. After that, with the help of X-rays the fluid is observed while it is going through the sexual organs including fallopian tubes. If the fallopian tubes are blocked the fluid will not go through all the parts. This is the easiest way to determine whether some women is suffering from blocked fallopian tubes, but this method doesn’t provide correct results all the time.

Nervous System Relation to Premature Ejaculation

You may not be aware of it, but the nervous system plays a critical role for men when it comes to lasting longer in bed. Fortunately for you, this article will take you through the relation of the nervous system to premature ejaculation and how you will be able to pro-long time before you ejaculate.
Kindly note; among many reasons attributed to premature ejaculation, a nervous system that is highly receptive features predominantly. We would like to let you know that there is in the nervous system two sub-systems. These two systems are the central and peripheral.

The central nervous system comprises of the brain and spinal cord. The Peripheral nervous system is attached to the spinal cord, brain, it however extends to various other important body limbs and organs and many more body parts.

The Nervous System

This is the system that is in control of analysis of all info you get from surrounding areas allowing you to react accordingly. The info analysed comes from things that you visualize, see and feel. Everything is conducted via the impulses creation and transmission towards the nervous system.
By using another peripheral view, you will notice that the nervous system acts as a command centre which relays to the body the way it should to certain situations. When you take a keen and deeper look in the peripheral nervous system, you will discover that it is split into two more nervous systems namely…

·         Somatic Nervous System
·         Autonomic Nervous System
Wait there is more…the autonomic nervous system is further split into two more divisions namely: Parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems. Enough of the biology system, let us focus on the systems that are in relation to male arousal, erection and ejaculation

Sympathetic System

This is a system that is comprised of various levels. One level is based purely on the intensity one feels thanks to stress. Negative stress multiplies when you are faced with a multitude of problems or in instances when your life is threatened.
Positive stress is experienced when you experience great thing such as reaching an orgasm or when you ejaculate. The sympathetic system represents energy use. This is the reason why you often suffer from premature ejaculation.

Parasympathetic System

This is a system that represents energy conservation. With this system, you are capable of controlling your ejaculation as you maintain a full erection.  When you take a keen look at both the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems, you will see how opposite their responses are.
Relaxation is a better word that describes parasympathetic system. This is the body part that is working when you experience positive and clear thoughts. It is also at work when you free yourself from challenges and life problems.


In conclusion: You are now aware of the link between nervous system and premature ejaculation. Every time you are about to make love, make sure that you keep your thoughts clear and positive.
