Are you are worried about cervical or genital warts?
Combined with cervical screening, the HPV vaccination is an important step towards preventing cervical cancer. We can provide the new Gardasil and Cervarix HPV vaccinations against cervical cancer and genital warts.
The HPV vaccination is not just for women, men can also benefit too. The HPV vaccine can be given to men and can help to reduce the risk of HPV infection and developing genital cancers. It is also particularly useful for men for the prevention of genital warts.
Vaccines act in the provention against the human papilloma virus (HPV). This virus is a sexually-transmitted infection that can cause genital warts, pre-cancerous abnormalities of cells in the female genitals (cervix or vulva) and cervical cancer. The HPV vaccinations work by provoking the body's immune response to this virus, without actually causing any HPV infection or any of the diseases.
How Are the HPV Vaccinations Given?
The vaccination course consists of three injections that can be given during convenient appointments over a period of six months or longer over 12 months if necessary. Appointments are with Private GP Dr Arun Ghosh, a specialist in sexual health, obstetrics and gynaecology.
The vaccine is normally given by injection into the muscle of the upper arm or upper thigh.
Course Option 1: First two doses are given two months apart and the third dose six months after the first dose
Course Option 2: First two doses are given at least one month apart with the third dose at least three months after the second dose.

- Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)
- Different Types of HPV
- Test Prices
The human papilloma virus (HPV) is the name given to a family of viruses that affect the skin and the moist membranes (mucosa) that line the body. Mucosa are found in the Mouth, Throat, Cervix (the neck of the womb) and Anus.
There are many different types of HPV virus that affect the genital area. These are classed as high-risk and low-risk depending on the type of conditions that they can cause.
Infection with some high-risk types of HPV can cause abnormal tissue growth as well as other cell changes that can lead to cervical cancer. Infection with other types of HPV may cause:
Genital Warts - Small growths or skin changes on or around the genital or anal area. These are the most common viral sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the UK
Skin warts and verrucas
Vaginal cancer or vulval cancer (although these types of cancer are rare)
Anal cancer or cancer of the penis
Some cancers of the head and neck
Laryngeal Papillomas (warts on the voice box or vocal cords)
Some types of HPV are transmitted through sexual contact, which can cause genital warts and cervical cancer.

The Myths of Fertility
Why Should I Have A HIV Test?
As with all vaccines, the Ceravix and Gardasil vaccines may not provide protection against HPV in everyone who has the vaccine. In addition it will not protect against all types of HPV. It will also not protect against any other sexually-transmitted infections (STIs). This means that after having either vaccine you should still practice safe sex to prevent STIs.
This vaccine should not be used as an alternative to having regular cervical smear tests and won't protect you from any cancerous changes that may be caused by an HPV infection you may already have without knowing. It is important to keep having regular smear tests.
Ask your doctor for more information and advice if this applies to you have an underactive immune system, for example due to a genetic defect, disease such as HIV infection or treatment with medicines that suppress the immune system, such as chemotherapy, high-dose corticosteroids, or immunosuppressants
