I have HPV and i found genital warts on my penis and I am taking therapy, after marriage my wife will absolutely get it?

I have HPV  and i found genital warts on my penis and I am taking therapy, after marriage my wife will absolutely get it?

Assume she will: But what's the real concern? Almost everyone has met at least one or two strains of HPV. If she complies with proper health care protocols, it's essentially no danger to life, and if she also develops warts (which is unlikely), they can be treated. Now, how about using barrier protection until you're married, so you won't pick up more HPV strains and the other nasty stuff you've gotten? Cheers. ...Read more

If cervical HPV is negative can HPV be active else where I.e the anus? Previously had abnormal smear (treated) worried it's in my anus. Thanks

If cervical HPV is negative can HPV be active else where I.e the anus?  Previously had abnormal smear (treated) worried it's in my anus. Thanks

Anal pap available: Thank you Kayleigh, This is a great question. HPV can be found to be negative but still be present in small numbers that we can not detect. The numbers rise and fall with the strength of the immune system. The immune system is affected by everything that we do i.e. Stress, diet, period, or taking medication . Be concerned but remember that the same immune system is on duty everywhere! Anal pap. ...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
