No: No. HpV is a viral illness that you contract from another person.

No: Tampons or other objects that come in contact with your genitals do not cause HPV.HPV is a family of dozens of viral strains that are passed as an infection from an infected source.It generally requires skin to skin transfer. A few strains have obvious signs like warts, but many can infect you and leave no obvious symptoms.
