Detailed Answer:

Thanks for asking on XXXXXXX

No, its not possible to cut all the virus. All we can do is the treatment which can reverse the changes in cervical cells. Most of the HPV infection usually clear by themselves. So, if you have virus and no disease related to it then you don't need any treatment. You just need a close follow up to see the clearance of virus.

Its not necessary that you will have oral HPV also. But it can be there and if its there it can be a high risk factor for oral cancer.

Main mode of transmission for HPV is sexual route. So, you and your husband can have it from each other.

Good Luck
