HPV and menopause: what women of the sexual revolution need to know

by Margery Gass | Jan 02, 2014

This week we wrote about what women of the sexual revolution should know about menopause and HPV reactivation for More.com. Here's an excerpt:

 "HPV peaks in young women around age of sexual debut and declines in the late 20s and 30s. But women’s risk for HPV is not over yet: There is sometimes a second peak around the age of menopause. Why?

A study released early in 2013 of women 35 to 60 years old found that HPV in women at or after menopause may represent an infection acquired years ago. Think of it like chickenpox—that virus can lie dormant in the bodies of people who were infected as children, then come raging back as shingles later in life when the immune system weakens. It’s the same with HPV. The reactivation risk may increase around age 50."
