HPV, genital warts: Since you and your husband have been having sex regularly, you already have been infected with whatever HPV infections that he has.

Had unprotected oral sex with a girl with warts who I think has HPV. Do I need to do any tests? And how long after exposure should I do it?

Had unprotected oral sex with a girl with warts who I think has HPV. Do I need to do any tests? And how long after exposure should I do it?

No test, no worries: Nobody should be tested for HPV just because they had sex with an infected person. Everybody gets exposed anyway, and everybody catches HPV, usually several times. No single exposure significantly raises the risk. You can assume that most women you have sex with probably have HPV. Just get examined if you ever develop warts or other symptoms. Most infections, oral or genital, are harmless. ...Read more

Had unprotected sex with a person who found out their last sexual partner had HPV (warts) but hadn't had an outbreak in years. Will I have warts too?

The vaccine protects: Because the vaccine called Gardasil is preventive medicine against HPV strains 6 and 11 (those strains cause most of people's genital warts), and because all young people should have already been vaccinated in the last 9 or 10 years, the young adult man in this situation is presumed vaccinated and presumed pretty safe... meaning he is unlikely to get genital warts. This man is vaccinated, right? ...Read more

Is it possible to clear the (genital) HPV virus out of my body and if so will the warts be gone forever as long as I have the same sex partner?

Maybe: The primary infection usually clears within 2 years spontaneously in people with a normal immune system. Many have visible warts removed (laser, frozen, chemical agents) but the germ itself can hibernate in your system forever and may recur. The most recent vaccine helps protect against 2 wart strains and 7 cancer associated strains if you have never had them. You would get some benefit. ...Read more

DO SKINNTAGS OR HPV WARTS INCREASE MY CHANCES OF HIV FROM HANDJOB? DON'T KNOW IF SHE HAD ANY CUTS OR FLUIDS ON HER HAND. TY MY LAST POST WAS NOT CLEAR.
