So if someone has hpv/genital warts can they just never have sex again w/o the possibility of transmitting it to someone else?

No: Insist that your lover use condom. Also the problem for the woman is that she might become infected and then the cells of her cervix might become cancerous. If the lady gets checked by having a "Pap" smear done of the cells of her cervix then you will pick up cases of cervical cancer early enough to treat it successfully. ...Read more

If I have the job virus that had caused cervical cancer, not warts, can my husband still  be at risk for genital warts?

If I have the job virus that had caused cervical cancer, not warts, can my husband still  be at risk for genital warts?

There are different strains of the same virus and the strains most likely to cause cervical cancer tend not to produce as many warts and the strains that cause visible warts in men are a bit less likely to cause cervical cancer. ...Read more

Can you get hpv, the one that causes cervical cancer, by oral sex? My husband had an extra marital affair and he said it was just oral sex. I found on the computer that HPV is tranfered from person to person from body fluids. Is that correct?

Can you get hpv, the one that causes cervical cancer, by oral sex? My husband had an extra marital affair and he said it was just oral sex. I found on the computer that HPV is tranfered from person to person from body fluids. Is that correct?

HPV : Hpv can be transmitted through oral sex as well as kissing with an open mouth. The strains of hpv that cause cervical cancer are also a high-risk factor for developing certain oral cancers. In addition to hpv other std's that are transmitted via oral sex include herpes, syphilis, gonorrhea, hiv(low risk), intestinal parasites (amebiasis), and hepatitis a. So you can tell your husband that "just oral sex" is not just oral sex because it carries a risk of contracting an std and potentially passing it on to an innocent partner. I wish you well. ...Read more

If a woman has an abnormal pap from HPV then why does the man not get treated?

It's not treatable: Excellent question, and subtle. The man's hpv usually doesn't produce a lesion that can be excised, and the hpv itself cannot be removed from either partner -- just the precancer / cancer. Once you have met a particular strain of hpv, it's there for life. This is in contrast to chlamydia and trichomonas, in which it's good to treat both partners in a current relationship at the same time. ...Read more
