What to do when a pregnancy tests positive for HPV infection
An HPV infection has been confirmed in a woman who had undergone a C-section at Mercy Health Health Network.
According to the health system, the woman was screened for HPV at the hospital on August 25, and was diagnosed with HPV16 on September 2.
The patient was initially diagnosed with a positive diagnosis, but was later re-screened for HPV16.
Mercy Health Health Networks spokesperson Kristin Dolan told local media outlets on Monday that the infection is not confirmed until it has been cleared from the patient.
She said the patient was then treated for symptoms such as fever, cough and vaginal bleeding, but that the virus did not spread to her cervix or uterus.
“We don’t know exactly what the virus is,” Dolan said.
“We are continuing to monitor the patient and will take whatever steps are necessary to provide the best care for the patient.”
Dolan added that the patient has not had any complications, and that she will be tested for other HPV infections and have additional tests done.
A statement from Mercy Health Networks said in a statement that the health network is in communication with the state health department about the diagnosis.
Dolan said the woman had had her C-sections before, and has been screened for the virus in the past.
She added that there was no indication that the HPV16 was the cause of her infection.
The state health office in Alabama has released a statement saying it is still working to determine the patient’s condition and will update this post when it has more information.
According the state’s Department of Public Health, the infection has not yet been confirmed as a vaccine-preventable disease, nor is there any indication of a vaccine being available.
However, the state department said it is not aware of any cases of vaccine-related death among the more than 3,000 women who had their C-Sections in Alabama during the first six months of 2018.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in March that there have been only six cases of a Covid-19 vaccine-associated death among people age 50 and older in the United States.
the state Department of Health, there are about 2,700 Covad-19-related deaths nationwide.
