If the female who's HPV high risk with cervical dsyplasma transmitt it by giving oral sex to the male.

No: If a woman has high risk hpv on her cervix, that doesn't mean she necessarily has been exposed to hpv orally. She would have to have had oral sex with a man. The virus doesn't travel through blood stream, it's skin to skin contact/transmittal. More partners means increased risk of hpv for both oral and cervical. Smoking also increases risk for both.

In the presence of hrhpv, a dysplastic or precancer lesion may possibly be present, even though the pap smear didn't show dysplastic cells.

If I have oral hpv high risk and I clean my childs pacifier with my mouth when a sink isn't available could I passed it to her? I

If I have oral hpv high risk and I clean my childs pacifier with my mouth when a sink isn't available could I passed it to her? I

No significant risk: I'm a little surprised to hear you have (confirmed?) oral infection with high risk HPV. Testing for oral HPV is rare and usually not recommended. But even if you have it, there is little if any risk to your child. It would make sense to not push your luck, i.e. to not "clean" her pacifier with saliva. Better to keep some alcohol hand cleaner handy (Purel and other brands) and use that. ...Read more
