We highly recommend and stock the vaccine for the prevention of the human papillomavirus (warts) in men and women. HPV is the cause of many dangerous cancers in women, and oral cancers in both sexes. You will need 3 vaccinations over 6 months. If you are a teenage girl or have a teenage daughter we highly recommend having this vaccine.
If you find out that you do have HPV – for example finding warts down there. We are able to organise for treatment to remove the warts. This can be done by freezing the warts or surgically removing the warts. We find that freezing the warts over 3-6 treatments is the most effective.
Our nurse at Ubuntu Medical can also administer the HPV vaccine to teenage girls to help protect against HPV and cervical cancer in later life.
Most estimates suggest that 20-30% of sexually active 18-25 year olds will contract Chlamydia at some point. The good news is that it is very easy to detect and treat. Symptoms are usually some level of discomfort or mild burning when peeing for both males and females. Un-diagnosed chlamydia can result in infertility in females so it is very important to get checked if you are unsure or worried.
