    Approximately four out of five people will contract HPV at some point in their life. Most of these people will not know that they have contracted the virus, and in the majority of cases it will clear up naturally. There are around 100 types of HPV. Some of these can cause genital warts. However, the majority, including those that most commonly lead to cervical cancer, do not carry any noticeable symptoms.

    The most effective way to detect HPV is through regular Pap tests, 2 yearly or as recommended by your doctor.
