Hpv: In theory the more contact with hpv the more chance for transmission and vice versa. I would see your doctor for more info and for now protected sex via condom.

Possibly: Sexual intercourse is what causes transmission of the virus. Thus even if you are already infected an act of sex can introduce more virus into the other person. You should be cautious and should both seek treatment from your physicians.

HPV needs treatment: Human papilloma virus is transmitted by oral sex and sexual intercourse. It is a preventable disease by vaccine and the use of condoms. It can be treated, and patients having it are prone to oral and genital cancer. It is the leading cause of cancer of the cervix.

but an existing hpv wart does not grow larger or more numerous on account of more sex.

Yes: Even though you both have HPV and are sure you have exactly the same strain(s), engaging in any unprotected intercourse or oral sex can increase your viral load (how many virus particles are in your body) and overwhelm your immune system, causing more breakouts of symptoms. And a higher viral load can increase your risk of cervical cancer and what stage it may be at. Use extreme caution.
