“Women can present for the first time with obvious genital warts in pregnancy even though the HPV may have been in the genital area for many years before.” (1)
A woman's immune system is usually weakened during pregnancy. Dr. Mitchell wrote in an article that “pregnancy is a relatively immune compromised state and so women can present for the first time with obvious genital warts in pregnancy even though the HPV may have been in the genital area for many years before. The genital warts tend to grow rapidly in pregnancy and in severe cases can extensively cover the vulva and vagina. The safest option for treatment in this case is to burn or cauterise the warts. This can be done safely by injecting the vulva and vagina with some lidocaine to make this a relatively painless procedure. In some cases repeated cauterisation has to be done since the warts can regrow after treatment. The cervix should also be examined at the time of cauterisation of the vulval warts by doing a colposcopy. This shows a detailed visualisation of the cervix to determine if there is involvement by the human papilloma virus and to rule out early abnormal changes that can lead to cervical cancer.” (1) Dr Sharmaine Mitchell is an obstetrician and gynaecologist writing for the Jamaican Observer.
If a person suspects an infection with the HPV virus, The Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) recommends that this individual set a doctor's appointment and get checked. In addition, the Center recommends taking Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin before becoming pregnant. Women should stop taking these products during pregnancy, and should resume once they have given birth. The formula of Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin was shown to reduce symptoms associated with HPV infection in two separate post-marketing studies that followed FDA guidelines. Additionally, the formula of these products was designed to help the immune system target the latent form of the HPV.
The formula of Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR formula is effective against the HPV and other viruses. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, “individuals infected with the HPV…reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR.” (2) The study authors also wrote that “we observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (2)
Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are natural antiviral dietary supplements. Their formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses. To date, Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.
Once infected, if warts do show up, they will most often appear on moist surfaces. These are especially at the entrance of the vagina and rectum in women. “In men and women, they can appear anywhere in the genital or anal area. They may be small, flat, flesh-colored bumps or tiny, cauliflower-like bumps. Individual warts usually measure 1 millimeter to 2 millimeters in diameter – much smaller than the diameter of a pencil eraser – but clusters can be quite large. In some cases, warts can be so small that you can't see them. Genital warts may not cause any symptoms, or they may cause itching, burning, tenderness or pain.” (3)
Are there treatments available against the HPV?
“There are no drugs approved against the HPV. Current treatments include procedures, such as cryotherapy, conization, and the Loop Electrosurgical Excision Procedure (LEEP). These procedures use liquid nitrogen, a surgical knife (scalpel), a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser, or electrical current to remove the abnormal growths caused by the HPV. These growths include cells that harbor the active virus. The procedures do not target cells with the latent virus. Since they do not remove the latent virus, these procedures only produce a temporary remission.” (2) In contrast, Novirin and Gene-Eden-VIR were designed to target the latent HPV.
“We recommend that individuals infected with the latent HPV virus take Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin. When a woman becomes pregnant, she should stop taking these products. She may resume once she has given birth.” - Greg Bennett, CBCD
