i have not been on here for a long time now but im ready to start writing again. I have been doing very well with my crohns disease being helped by prednisone. Well, my doctor told me after 8 months of being on it its time to come off because its going to hurt me rather then do me good. I was recently diagnosed with HPV which i am m mortified about let alone very embaressed. My doctor wants me to start with 6MP again but that lowers my immune system and im scared its going o keep triggering my HPV and my paps to keep coming back abnormal. I also have been noticing a lot of canker sores in my mouth and i dont know if that is from the HPV or prednisone or stress.
 Can anyone help of give me thier opinion with my situation? im very nervous i am constantly worrying about things.

I have HPV and am on Humira, was on Remicade before but got a bad reaction to it.

I have not have anything unusual since starting the Remicade in jan 2009
and I am not worried and nether is my doctor.

I have had a mini operations to get rid of cell changes in my cervix and it has not showed up again since starting the Remicade or Humira.

I would say having HPV is nothing to be embarrassed about.
Did you know that you can get it although you used a condom?

I read somewhere that over 80% of sexually active Americans have it ;)

Hi! Don't be embarrased about an HPV. It happends to the most careful and does not indicate to me anything regarding you character. My sister has an HPV and she is not a fast and loose kinda gal! She also has issues with abnormal paps and has had to have a few biopsies because of it. Has he tried you on entocort? It is a more mild steroid than prednisone and has done wonders for me. The upside is that I have had no weight gain so far although since I have an appetite again I do have to watch it and no moon face.
Dx with crohns February 25, 2010. But suspect I had it since 2002 with very mild symptoms.
4 lialda a day.
3 entocort daily for the next few months
hyosamine for daytime
Bentyl for evening
Ferrous Sulfate(iron supplement)
