If two people who had no sexual contact before so no stds had sex can they spread  high risk hpv to one another ?

No: One of the great arguments for virginity until a monogamous marital relationship is the lack of any risk of a sexually transmitted disease. You cannot have or transfer a disease to which you were never exposed or had. There are some variable diseases that you can get without sex that can pass during sex, like flu, mono, hepatitis, etc. but not the true STD's. ...Read more

If you clear one strain of high risk HPV would it mean that you would have cleared all other strains?

No. Strains differ.: Some viral strains are more alike in an immunological way, meaning your antibodies to one might give you protection against another. Each person can end up with a collection of strains that he does not have good immunity against, but get rid of strains he has good immunity against. The more worrisome strains are ones that most humans tend to have difficulty getting rid of. Always be vaccinated. ...Read more

However, these strains are well known for their ability to hibernate & recur years or decades later. The pap smears done to screen for cervical cancer were in common use for decades before we understood a link to HPV. Clearing the primary infection does not mean risk is gone. ...Read more

Define "go away": HPV is a family of viruses and at least a dozen strains have been identified as higher risk.These will often clear on their own in 1-2 yrs in healthy adults, but can hibernate, recur & produce the cell changes seen on pap smears. Its good that they froze any abnormal cells. It may/not recur & you may or not shed the germ, exposing others.You are not alone.Some studies show >50% with HPV antibodies ...Read more
