HPV infection: Vaginal hpv are a specific set of viral types. It is possible to transmit common warts to any skin surface of your body. However, these hpv types are usually not the same as those we feel provoke cervical disease and cancer. That being said, get the warts treated and/or removed. Just for your piece of mind if nothing else.

Do you knw the: Difference between venereal warts, condyloma accuminata, and common warts? Hpv is not associated with common warts. I think you need an exam by some that is trained to know the difference and advise you of risk and safe sex practices. All warts are not the same.

No: There are two types of hpv skin infections: cutaneous types causing nongenital warts; mucosal types responsible for anogenital warts, cervical dysplasia/cancer, and laryngeal papillomatosis. Current hpv vaccine provides protection against mucosal type infection.
