How Do You Catch Hpv
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection. There are over 100 different types of HPV that causes warts in different areas of the body. HPV is incredibly common and almost all sexually active men and women get it during their lifetime. Most of the time HPV does not cause any symptoms or complications. However, A limited number of these HPV viruses are pathogenic and if not monitored carefully can be responsible for causing cervical and penile cancer. Some of these viruses have been ...Read more
No: This is not like a strep throat you can pass back & forth several times. Once you have a strain of HPV (there are dozens) you become immune to that strain. It will often clear in its own in a year or two but it can hibernate in you and reactivate in the future. You can give it to your bf and he will eventually develop his own immunity but he could pass it to other partners as could you. ...Read more
Should I worry about catching hpv if I become intimate w/ someone before getting all 3 shots? (I've had 1 and will get all 3, but that takes 6 months)
Too long, don't wait: Congratulations for a responsible approach to sexual safety, and for being immunized against HPV. The vaccine is highly protective 1 mo. After 2nd dose (2 mo total) -- not quite as good as 3 doses, but close. Also, bad outcomes are rare from any single HPV infection, and condoms reduce risk. So don't let HPV overly dominate romance and rewarding sex. I don't think you need wait 6 months. ...Read more
You can't: Take the immunization for hpv and this will protect you from the strains that you have not already met. Everybody has some strains of this ubiquitous virus and most are at worst just minor nuisances. That you're in a relationship and want to be physically close is great, and the hoopla over a virus whose dangerous effects can be prevented by routine health care shouldn't interfere. ...Read more
Is it possible to catch HPV from shared use of towels, toilets, and pants (if they were worn without underwear)?
Am I at risk of catching HPV by trying on a pair of jeans (with my underwear on) previously worn by a friend of mine?
If a man has oral sex with I female that has HPV and warts. And has oral with another female can the other female catch HPV and warts?
Doubtful: There appears to be a requirement for skin to skin contact and abrasive force before this tissue surface germ can affix itself and trigger an infection. Saliva also has some anti-infective capabilities. If a person has an altered immune system from HIV or chemo, they may be at risk. Otherwise I doubt it would be an issue. ...Read more
What are the chances of not catching HPV from person who's infected when you have unprotected sex?
Can you catch hpv from a toliet seat urine or can you catch a disease from urine period please help?
Here are some. ..: Catching virus or bacteria doesn't mean going to contract and develop disease by virus or bacteria because we constantly rely on the natural barriers - skin/ mucosa, and personal defense immune ability to win the invisible war against the all microorganisms inside and around us. Of course, taking precaution with sanitary approach to daily living would help, but not overzealous and even obsessive. ...Read more
I took a sip with MY straw from the drink of a person infected with oral HPV (she had already drunk from her cup). Can I catch HPV this way?
VERY UNLIKELY: The transfer of this germ generally requires direct contact by two surfaces involved. A little germ debris floating in a drink does not have the power to grind into your tissue. I would not sweat the issue. ...Read more
Unlikely? Possibly?: Hpv is presumed to survive a short time outside the infected person, so if a swimsuit comes off an infected person and goes immediately onto a second person, it makes sense that the second person can catch the hpv. If a swimsuit goes in the washer/dryer before the second person wears it, the second person is safe. If a swimsuit isn't washed but just hung up to dry, possibly hpv lives hours? Days? ...Read more

Can you catch hpv and herpes from blood on the wall by toilet tissue wasn't sure if any was on toilet paper please help very worried? Blood was nt dry
No risk, no worry: Herpes and HPV are not transmitted through blood. Even for blood borne viruses like HIV or hepatitis B or C, this sort of contact carries little or no risk -- especially if the toilet paper did not have large amounts of wet blood, and if no contact of the blood with open sores. Don't worry about it. ...Read more

My hausband and I have hpv not visibal wart. I'm pregnant my hausband ejaculet semin inside my dose my baby catch hpv from semin?
No: It does not work that way. During pregnancy the baby is surrounded by a series of membranes and fluid through which this germ cannot go. It is only those germs that gain entry to your blood that can get to baby, this does not. Wart strains can be passed if the kid's skin is contaminated during vaginal birth. We don't have evidence that the non-wart strains are passed this way. ...Read more
