Human papilloma virus (HPV) causes several sexually transmitted diseases. Although its ability to induce several malignancies is well documented. The presence of HPV in male gametes has been correlated with the impairment of semen parameters, which seems to be HPV genotype-dependent. In consequence, the fertilization potential of these semen samples is reduced. The majority of studies regarding the impact of HPV on female reproductive health are confusing, but regarding the reproductive outcome it is not clear whether HPV has any significant effect. However, there was a significant correlation between HPV risk and spontaneous abortions. Last, regarding HPV infection and cryopreservation, it seems that infected samples should be stored in different tanks in order to avoid any possible cross-contamination infection. HPV detection and genotype determination are helpful tools in the identification of infertile couples. View Paper here.
