I was wondering if anyone has any experience or success with taking extra vitamins and supplements to help HPV?

Well I barely started taking mine in February after a nasty illness. I started with Vitamin C. My pap was less then a month later. No way to know how much of a benefit it actually was in my case. I've read some where that some folks who took a folic acid supplement saw some pretty good results. I guess some showed great results when they showed up for their six month pap. Some folks would swear by them (vitamins and supplements). Then others say that it's not that big of a help. So it all depends on the person. I personally feel it doesn't hurt as long as you don't get too crazy. I think they can help your system out. I've also heard people swearing by drinking green tea in helping the immune system out as well.

I am unable to provide results, but being new to HPV I have added vitamins to my daily routine. I would encourage you to read up on them, especially Grapeseed extract, C and E. Good luck!

Hmm...grapeseed extract? Interesting. Saw a little something about that after your post. May have to look into that as well.

You might also want to review our discussion on folic acid and nutrition at http://www.ashastd.org/phpbb/viewtopic. ... folic+acid

Best,
