Depends on variables: If you completed the vaccine series before any sexual activity you would be well protected against the strains in the vaccine you received. If you were exposed before the vaccine, you could have hpv and never know it. There are also other hpv strains not in the vaccines but these are less common and seldom cause significant illness. Condoms do not provide perfect protection against hpv. ...Read more

I gave my boyfriend oral sex, he only had a few warts on his pubic/pelvis but not on his penis. Is there still a chance of me contracting hpv? If so, would it only in the mouth? Does sperm play a role?

It can be prevented by sexual abstinence, use of condom, monogonous relationship and by HPV Vaccine ...Read more
Close to 100%: Hpv is the most common std in the world. In fact, classifying it as an std does not mean that it cannot be transmitted in other ways. For example, skin-to-skin contact could potentially spread the virus. While some hpv infections lead to cancers in both men and women, in most cases hpv will clear up on its own without causing any symptoms, side effects, or problems. Vaccination is recommended. ...Read more
I have heard that hpv generally clears itself in two years. If I have it past the two year mark does that mean I have no chance of clearing it at all?
HPV vaccine: HPV types 6, 11, 16, 18 are the most common that cause genital warts and are involved in cervical cancer and are the ones that are included in the vaccine.

Why it is more chance to have HPV infection if you do sex in early age? Does sex with only one partner in early age cause HPV infection?
The basics: You only get an STD like HPV from someone infected with HPV. It can remain dormant and have no symptoms for decades. Early sexual activity increases the chance of multiple partners and more exposures. Two people who never had partner sex can start a life and never get a STD if they remain faithful to each other. ...Read more
Will my body eventually suppress HPV? I am 24 years old with recently diagnosed HPV (January, 2015), LSIL from December 24, 2014.Chances of eradication?
See below: Your immune system can control viral replication but elimination of dysplastic lesions is the goal in treating squamous intraepithelial lesions (SILs). There are generally two options after the diagnosis of low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions has been confirmed by biopsy: follow up with repeat Pap tests every 4-6 months, or local excision such as LEEP biopsy ...Read more
What are the chances of HPV human papillomavirus clearing on its own in someone's system (i.e a 27year old male) who has abstained for 7years since.?
Good chance: There is about a 70-90% chance that the immune system can clear the virus. If he notices symptoms (genital warts), he probably still has the virus. Condoms will reduce the infection rate to his partner, but it is not 100%, since it is transmitted from skin to skin, even through oral sex. Having the partner be vaccinated (as long as they're under age 26), would also reduce transmission. ...Read more
Same as without HPV: A woman's chances of getting pregnant are the same, with or without HPV. Human papilloma virus causes warts, which can lead to cancers in places like the cervix and the anus, but HPV does not change a woman's fertility. However, if a woman has HPV and decides to have less sexual activity because she feels she is spreading virus, she will be less likely to get pregnant (due to less sex activity). ...Read more

Some studies, following women who claim to have had sex for the first time, and with minimal partners, and data shows that 40% will test positive in 2 years after first having sex. That's a pretty high acquisition risk! We also know that 80% of women will test positive by age 50! protect yourself! ...Read more

Can a nurse take wrong pap smear? I got negative both from HPV test and pap smear but is there any chance the beginner nurse didn't take it correctly?
Yes and no: There are some safeguards in the procedure. A pap smear should never be reported out unless the smear is first an adequate specimen (has the right kind of cervical cells on the slide) as judged by the person reviewing the slide. If adequate, and no abnormal cells are seen, it would be reported as negative. Can errors be made?, yes. ...Read more
What are the chances of getting oral warts /hpv from giving oral sex to a female? Many of the docs on here have given me polarized opinions about this
HPV: There is no right answer to almost any question about hpv yet. I would say that oral sex performed on a female is of low risk.
