Can I get HPV if I got fingered in my anus and then vagina? No sure if he used different fingers?

Not Likely: If he is fingering your anus and then your vagina, you are primarily only exposing yourself to yourself. If you know you have hpv in your anus and not in your vagina, he could transfer the virus to the vagina. Hpv can be transferred by any solid object being shared between a hpv infected area and non-infected area. ...Read more

Touched girls vagina quickly (one second), did not finger. Washed my hands throughly before touching my own genitals. Can HPV still stay on fingers?

Touched girls vagina quickly (one second), did not finger. Washed my hands throughly before touching my own genitals. Can HPV still stay on fingers?

Highly unlikely: Hpv is passed on through genital contact, most often during vaginal and anal sex. Hpv may also be passed on during oral sex and genital-to-genital contact. I think the extremely brief exposure, the nature of the exposure, and your prompt handwashing make it extremely unlikely that you became infected with hpv under those circumstances. ...Read more

Your wart will clear up with time; or see a doctor for treatment. It's no big deal, nothing to be upset or worried about. ...Read more

I've had warts on my hands since I was a child. Does HPV cause warts on hands and fingers? Am I going get cervical cancer?

I touched a friend's fingers. 2 hours later I scratched my anus before washing. He might have touched HPV genital warts before we met. Am I infected?

I touched a friend's fingers. 2 hours later I scratched my anus before washing. He might have touched HPV genital warts before we met. Am I infected?

Doubt it: Your question appears to state you put your fingers on your anus (direct contact) to scratch it but the fingers may have been contaminated hours earlier by someone else who touched HPV warts. Strain transfer appears to require direct skin to skin contact and rubbing action with tissue shedding live virus.I doubt that whatever you did qualifies as a means of transfer. ...Read more

My boyfriend has a wart on his finger but it was not caused by genital warts, so is it contagious? Isn't it only genital warts that are caused by hpv?

My boyfriend has a wart on his finger but it was not caused by genital warts, so is it contagious? Isn't it only genital warts that are caused by hpv?

Plantar wart: He probably has what is termed a "plantar wart" which is a common wart of the hand. The wart is usually caused by HPV but it is a different strain than the that causes genital warts. It can be transmitted so it helps to cover the wart in a bandage, especially when it is moist. There are over the counter medicines at your local drug store to treat them. Good luck! ...Read more

Can entering things in anal (finger, pens, dildo, carrot, colonoscope, .) consider a risk factor for anal or rectal cancer (not with hpv and stds)?

Can entering things in anal (finger, pens, dildo, carrot, colonoscope, .) consider a risk factor for anal or rectal cancer (not with hpv and stds)?

No: The link to HPV is clear-cut, but this won't up risk. Be careful with pens or anything else that can perforate your mucosa or that could become lodged there. If this is something you really want to do, with yourself or with others, fine. There's no understanding personal turn-ons. If this is compulsive / unwanted behavior, a short course of cognitive-behavioral therapy might free you from it. ...Read more

Can HPV be spread through indirect contact? For example, if my finger touches a genital wart and I lick my finger with my tongue, can I get mouth wart

No risk: This is one of at least 3 questions you have asked about HPV, all of them suggesting you are unnecessarily worried about catching it. You are at risk of HPV only by sex with infected partners. Nobody can say the risk is zero with this sort of contact, but it is far too low to worry about. If you are sexually active, even with only one partner, that's how you'll get HPV someday. No other way. ...Read more

Hpv burned my hand from vagina and it seems like it burned finger nerved. I touched a girls vagina fluid doc says it ain't but I think is a new strain?

Hpv burned my hand from vagina and it seems like it burned finger nerved. I touched a girls vagina fluid doc says it ain't but I think is a new strain?

Avoid touching it: Haven't heard of anyone else getting burning sensations immediately upon touching a woman's vaginal fluids, regardless of whether or not viruses are present. If one is getting such immediate burning sensations upon contact with the fluid, one should avoid contact with the fluid. Touch, pain, and related sensations are highly influenced by the toucher's neural processing of the touch stimuli. ...Read more
