What are the chances of getting HPV if you have unprotected sex with someone who's infected?

Pretty high: We don't know exactly, but we do have studies that follow women at a young age to see the risk. 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

HPV vaccine: There is actually a vaccine for HPV -human papilloma virus. Even though you are 28, you might be a good candidate for that - given your husband's infection. Unfortunately it might be 'too late' though depending on when he contracted it and how much sexual contact you've had already. I would CERTAINLY talk to your doctor about possibly getting the vaccine and taking other steps to reduce your risk. ...Read more

If my girlfriend test neg for hpv that's my only sex partner what's my chances of having hpv if im her only sex partner we deep kiss nd unprotected sex?

Still could have HPV: The standard HPV test often misses HPV. Your partner's negative test only tells that HPV probably wasn't on her cervix at the time of her test. You are going to get HPV someday, maybe already have; it is a normal, expected part of human sex. HPV is transmitted only by intercourse, not kissing. Get vaccinated to protect from the 9 HPV types that cause almost all cancer or warts. Then don't worry! ...Read more

Girlfriend got +ve HPV and pap smear. We had unprotected sex few times. What to do to check if I got hpv? Can I get vaccination? What's next step?

HPV in men: There is no immediate "next step". Men in your situation do not need examination or testing unless they see warts on the penis. There are no approved tests for HPV in men and nothing to do even if a test were positive. Everybody gets HPV. Your gf's HPV and abnormal pap have no effect on your health. However, you could be vaccinated to prevent infection with the 9 HPV types covered by the vaccine. ...Read more

Can having unprotected sex with my partner make my HPV worse? I recently got told that it has worsened from the initial check six months ago.

Good question: Well...It will for him that's for sure. Hpv also infects males. The male hpv I see is rectal and anal....But a mucous membrane is a mucous membrane. Just check with your gyn as well and see what they think. This is a complicated question and situation. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex with my bf then later found out I had HPV does that mean he has it too now? Is oral sex out of the question now?

HPV: It is very likely that he is positive as well. Certainly I would make that assumption. Hpv has recently been show to cause throat cancer. Using a condom should used during oral sex if you want to protect yourself fully. Anal sex as well. Condoms reduce viral load and reduce the likelihood of hpv related problems. ...Read more

I was recently diagnosed with HPV. I've only had 3 partners. I've never had unprotected sex and I've been celibate for 10 years. How is this possible?

It happens: Studies have shown as many as 70% of college age women are positive. HPV can bypass condoms and pass unnoticed for decades. The wart producing strains would give rise to observed findings within a year or so. The other strains do not produce symptoms in men & will occasionally cause cervical changes in women over time. ...Read more

I have HPV and so does my girlfriend. She does not have a breakout, but I do. If we have unprotected sex could my condition cause her to have a breakout?

Good chance it will: She probably has phv on her cervix, but she could end up getting it on the vulva from teh subtype that is on your penis and that is sometimes hard to get rid of so you should see a urologist to get trreated Aldara (imiquimod) cream works well for many people or other treatments. ...Read more

My girlfriend had uterin cancer because of HPV 16. Am I at risk if we had unprotected sex?

Likely had it alredy: Most of the population is already infected. If u had unprotected sex then you likely are a carrier. Uterine cancer is not caused by hpv, but cervical cancer is, so you may be mistaken on her diagnosis? It has not been related to penile or male gu cancers. It is associated with head and neck cancers, although with a more favorable prognosis than those unrelated to hpv. Oral sex transmits. ...Read more

Unacceptable: Is possible to be lucky if you only had unprotected sex once with an hpv +ve partner. No reliable ststistics available to give %risk or chance. But, even 1% risk would be too high, and risks must be in the 20 -50% range. Please get checked & get prophylactic or necessary treatment asap. ...Read more

My girlfriend has the HPV virus. She has not any warts. We have been having unprotected sex for over 2 years. Does this mean will have it also.?

I just found out I got HPV from my new partner. We are both monogamous. Can we continue having unprotected sex? Or should we start using condoms?

Rx & condoms: Although condoms will not protect you from warts (HPV) present on the scrotum, which is uncovered, they are better then nothing to prevent re-infection. First if you have visible warts, get treated by a GYN MD for you and a FP or Urologist for him. Remember that some strains of HPV can progress to cervical cancer in females. ...Read more

Yes to both: You have both been exposed to the hpv viruses. The strain which causes warts is low risk for cervical cancer. You may get a wart eventually but it is easily managed. One option is aldara, (imiquimod) a cream that will help with the wart issue. I would probably use condoms when someone has a wart but if you stay monogamous, in time the virus may clear. It will not create issues of fertility. Gd luc. ...Read more
