Can HPV cause infertility in females?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 05/30/2017

The human papillomavirus (HPV) alone should not have a huge impact on fertility. Although some studies have found that IVF patients who screened positive for HPV were less likely to have a baby, the reasons behind this affirmation are still unclear.

Some investigations have found that it is because an embryo might find it harder to implant in a woman whose immune system is unable to clear the virus. However, the vast majority are able to get pregnant without problems.
