Thank you again Dr. Hook for previous hiv answers. I am trying to obtain medical records if i was tested for hiv 2 as well in 2/4/2019 and get new test for hiv 2. 

I have a new question about HPV. I had only 2  hpv vacines done (I was younger 16 and 18 y o. )I am a female 31
 1. Is it enough to have 2 vaccines to cover the posible cancers, especialy oral cancers
 2. I am more concerned oral cancers if  2 vaccannines enough or should i get the third considering my age 31. 
3. Should a  31 y o.  get 3rd vaccine(I was reading things and got scared to get 3rd vacine due to the risks) 
4.I had oral few times on the giving previous partners 3 on adults over 40 year old male with cum in my mouth to spit out. 1 in 30 s. Then I learned more how it can also be dangerous for throat cancer. I am worried
5. Is it possible to pass on my curent husband. I have no symptoms my pap is good. 
6. my glands bother me time to time, my throat dry and have tonsilitis those white things, reaccuring ulcers only on my tounge sometimes. I went to e and t to look into my nose through the glands he didnt see anythign bad. I am scared of throat/esophagus/mouth  cancer. (my mouth alwasy feels acitic)
7. How effective those vaccines for throat cancer and in females orally. 
8. Can I get swabbed for oral hpv cancer some how? 

Thank you so much for being here to answer our questions.

this is now your 3rd question in as many days.  Something has clearly made you concern and anxious but I'm not sure what that might be.  I think you need you control your fears and do your best to move forward without concern.  If you are trying to deal with your worries by looking on the internet, please stop as there are no filters there and much of what is found there is wrong or misleading.  Stay off the internet, please try to move forward without continuing concern.  In answer to your newest set of questions:

 1. Is it enough to have 2 vaccines to cover the posible cancers, especialy oral cancers
Two vaccine injections provide partial protection and do reduce risk for HPV and cancers, including oral cancers. There are no scientific data to inform us whether delaying your 3rd dose more than 10 years is important or not.  I would suggest you discuss this with your doctor.  There is certainly no harm from receiving your 3rd dose now if it is easy to do.

 2. I am more concerned oral cancers if  2 vaccannines enough or should i get the third considering my age 31. 
See above. The vaccine does appear to reduce risk for oral cancer as well as cervical cancer.

3. Should a  31 y o.  get 3rd vaccine(I was reading things and got scared to get 3rd vacine due to the risks) 
This is a repetitive question.  There is no harm to receiving the 3rd dose of vaccine at this time.

4.I had oral few times on the giving previous partners 3 on adults over 40 year old male with cum in my mouth to spit out. 1 in 30 s. Then I learned more how it can also be dangerous for throat cancer. I am worried
Oral cancer is relatively rare. There are no approved tests for oral HPV.  Even when you perform oral sex on a person with HPV, most exposures do not lead to infection.  Dentists are now trained to look for signs of oral cancer.  The best thing you can do going forward is to go to your dentist regularly. 

5. Is it possible to pass on my curent husband. I have no symptoms my pap is good. 
It is unlikely that your putting your husband at risk.  If you have HPV and you've had sex he's been exposed. There is no sense to stop sex now.  Further, while HPV is a small risk for women (fewer than 1% of HPV infections go on to cancer- more than 99% do not), it is even a smaller risk for men.

6. my glands bother me time to time, my throat dry and have tonsilitis those white things, reaccuring ulcers only on my tounge sometimes. I went to e and t to look into my nose through the glands he didnt see anythign bad. I am scared of throat/esophagus/mouth  cancer. (my mouth alwasy feels acitic)
If you had a problem, the ENT would have most likely diagnosed it.  Take comfort in the reassurance he provided you.

7. How effective those vaccines for throat cancer and in females orally. 
Repetitive, see above.

8. Can I get swabbed for oral hpv cancer some how? 
As I said before, there are no approved tests to look for oral HPV infections.  I urge you not to worry.
