ok... so I don't really talk about this with anyone else so that is why I keep on posting here (that's all part of my coping/processing phase, I guess). Most sites provide no useful information about the virus and I hear anything from it being a horror to really not a big deal at all. So, at night I research on the subject. Tonight I came across some really interesting stuff which is both recent in the field and pretty exciting. I mean, I didn't even know that there were such things as HPV conventions around the world (apparently people DO try to find cures and treatment options).
Anyway... apparently they began or maybe just finished a study on lubricants with Carrageenan that seem REALLY promising in the protection against HPV. I also think that it might help fight it as well but I might be making that up. Either way, it's pretty exciting
here are two links. one to the HPV convention in Germany (there was also one in Canada) and one about the product Carraguard and Bioguard
