In : In short...Yes. These lesions are caused by the hpv virus and can be transmitted by contact like any other virus. Over the last 20 years we are seeing increasing number of intraoral lesions caused by the hpv viruses linked to genital warts due to the increase in oral sex.

It : It absolutely can, and more importantly it can also lead to oral cancer. There are over 130 strains of hpv and though most americans will be exposed to some version of hpv in their lifetime, only about 1% of those infected will have a lack of immune response which will result in some type of lesion. Oral sex is not safe sex and is 9x more likely to cause oral cancer then smoking and drinking combined.

Yes, it can but...: Yes, oral sex has been known to be a viable route of transmission; so it's advisable to look at / into the throat in 2-4 months to make sure of no occurrence of wart. Fact: some 1% of sexually active adults in the us have wart although some 10-15% of the us population are tested positive for hpv dna; this implies many hpv-infected are free of clinical disease of warts.

Unlikely.: The most fertile time of the month is about 2 weeks from the start of your period assuming that you have a period every 28 days. If your periods are shorter than 28 days, it is possible that you could have hit the fertile time. You will have to wait until you miss your period to get a pregnancy test. There is no way to tell if you are pregnant where you are in your cycle now.

Spotting is common: Spotting is very common in the first few weeks after you start taking Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) injections. It is expected to resolve in coming months. If it does not resolve then you should see your gynecologist for examination.

Likely Miscarriage: When a fetal pole and heart beat are not seen on early ultrasound, the ultrasound is usually repeated in one to two weeks. Given your bleeding, it is probable that you are experiencing a misscarriage. If you bleeding becomes more than 1 pad an hour or you have increasing pain, you should call your physician immediately.
