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

Could you tell me if one has HPV what are the chances it's been transmitted to her partner?

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

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

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.?

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

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?

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.
