Our expert says:
Current preventive vaccines protect against the two HPV types (16 and 18) that cause about 70% of cervical cancers worldwide. Even if you don't have these strains, getting the vaccine will be worthwhile. You should always use safe sex practices to prevent re-infection ( condoms! ) Currently a vaccine is being develop that will actually treat current infections and this should be available within a few years.
