Could you get HPV from making out?

Could you get HPV from making out?

Define "making out": Hpv is passed from an infected person who is shedding the virus to another by skin to skin contact. (usually genital to genital) if your "making out" included some skin to skin contact it would be possible. The more involved the contact the more the risk.

Do you get the hpv shot every year.

No: It is a series of 3 doses given within 6 months. That completes the series. At some point in years to come there may be a need for a booster, but for now, that is not the case.

Is it okay that I get the HPV shot?

You choose: The present HPV vaccine helps protect people from 9 strains of the HPV, but only if they have never been infected by them. It is given as a series of injections to yield long term benefit. It was approved to target the 9-16yo age group. At a listed age of 53, you are not in the target group. It would not hurt you, but may have minimal value. You would likely have to pay the hefty cost (>$200/dose)

Could I get HPV if my boyfriend and I are virgins?

Could I get HPV if my boyfriend and I are virgins?

Unlikely: If you are both certified virgins, the probability of you contracting hpv from him is very low. There are a percentage of people however who are "born" with hpv, after contracting it from their infected mothers. Please keep this in mind. My suggestion would be to get vaccinated against hpv before you have sex reducing your risk even further!

How long am I suppose to wait to get tested for hpv?

Probably no need: I can't tell your sex. If female, then HPV testing is now done routinely with pap smears. Other than that, HPV testing is rarely needed or recommended. Even if you have been exposed, e.g. a partner with genital warts or abnormal pap, no testing is recommended; just see a doc if anything abnormal appears. Everybody has genital HPV at one time or another, and almost all infections clear up anyway.

Can I get HPV by receiving oral just once from a guy?

Extremly unlikely: HPV is rarely if ever transmitted mouth to genitals. It can be acquired in the mouth by oral sex, but rarely goes in the other direction. However, you can expect to have HPV someday; almost all sexually active people are eventually infected, mostly from genital or anal sex, not oral. That's why you and all young people need HPV vaccine, to prevent infection with the most troublesome HPV types.
