Well it can if you have had multiple partners.
Another sin against your health.. Too many sexual partners in your past.
If your wild days are well behind you, so are most of the immediate risks for sexually transmitted diseases. There is one important exception: The ore sexual partners a woman has had the higher her odds for developing cervical cancer at any age. Cervical cancer is caused by some strains of the human papilloma virus (HPV). A persistent, silent infection could linger for years before the cancer is discovered. Slightly more than 20 percent of women with cervical cancer are diagnosed when they are over 65 years old.
Your odds for developing cervical cancer after an HPV infection double if you’re also a smoker, if you ever used oral contraceptives for 5 years or longer (our risk may rise four times above normal if you were ever on the Pill for longer than 10 years). If you’ve given birth to several children, if your mother or sisters have had cervical cancer, or if you’ve had any illness that lowers your immunity.
If you’ve resumed an active sex life with new partners, of have had more than one partner in the past few years, here’s something else to consider. Your knowledge of sexually transmitted diseases (STD) may be dangerously out of date. Some doctors are beginning to report an upswing of STD infections in their older patients, as more single or even newly married older people enjoy new intimacies. The rules for safe sex have changed radically in the past 15 years – you may need to catch up.
You can’t “undo” an HPV infection but you can get tested and treated (with surgery or other procedures). If you’re sexually active again, you can learn new preventative rules to protect yourself.
You can have a greater sense of control and safety in your intimate relationships. Also being proactive will greatly lower your risk for STDs and help catch signs of cervical cancer earlier.
Here are some things you can do the help you repair your body from the sins of having many sexual partners in your past.
So there you have it. In all ways play safe, stay safe and protect your health, and you can live a long and healthy life!
