HPV: HPV is a very common virus and there are many strains. Only a few of them are associated with cervical cancer for the female. Once you have the virus it will stay in your system. There is no treatment for the virus. The best prevention at this time is to get the HPV vaccine prior to sexual activity to prevent you from contracting the virus. Screening pap smears is important to look for changes. ...Read more

Can you transfer HPV to a dog or cat if they drink out of your toilet? Please help

Human Papillomavirus: can only cause warts in humans. Dogs have their own variant called CPV (canine papillomavirus). If you have pets who regularly drink out of the toilet and also lick family members on the face, you would be wise to remind all household members to put the lid down on the toilet after each use to prevent the dog from using the toilet as a water bowl. ...Read more

If in your 20's&havehpv & are with the same person who gaveit to you will HPV ever clear from your papresults or are you transferring HPV backnforth?

HPV: This is not necessarily being transferred back and forth, but rather not curable in the sense that it will always stay with you. Only some strains predispose to malignancy and regular checks with pelvic exams is a good idea. You might consider getting the hpv vaccine. ...Read more

Can HPV be transferred if a girl gives me a unprotected blowjob?

Can HPV be transferred if a girl gives me a unprotected blowjob?

Extremely unlikely: Oral HPV isn't all that rare, but a lot less common than genital HPV. More important, even in the busiest STD clinics, we virtually never see patients with genital (e.g. penile) warts whose only possible exposures were oral sex. While nobody can say the risk is zero from oral sex, it is extremely rare -- zero for practical purposes. Oral sex can be considered safe sex in regard to HPV. ...Read more

If my partner and I already had unprotected and I have abnormal pap w/ low risk HPV does this mean that we were transferring back and forth ?

If my partner and I already had unprotected and I have abnormal pap w/ low risk HPV does this mean that we were transferring back and forth ?

Permanent resident: Once you have one of the strains of HPV it can stay around indefinitely.Whether or not you pass it to anther depends on whether you are shedding the virus at the time of contact.Shedding can be intermittent. If your partner has acquired it, the same rules apply. You do not pass this back and forth like a strep throat. ...Read more

What happens if HPV is transferred from mom to child through birth, can the child infect anyone else with it?

What happens if HPV is transferred from mom to child through birth, can the child infect anyone else with it?

Difficult issue: The data does show some forms (genital warts) emerging up to 2-3 years after a vaginal birth to an infected mom. Since subsequent transmission to someone else would require close physical contact, and the strains are specific to their sites, such would be unexpected unless the kid was sexually abused. The warts themselves gradually clear or are removed long before puberty. ...Read more

I have genital warts caused by hpv so what I should do?and does touching my genital areas will transfer the warts to other parts of my body ?

No significant risk: Genital warts almost never are transmitted to other areas of the body. They also are not transmitted to other persons, such as your baby. The genital types of HPV don't easily infect other areas. To be as safe as possible, just use common sense hygiene, like washing your hands after using the toilet and before handling your baby, e.g. changing diapers. Otherwise don't worry about it. ...Read more

Does HPV only stay in genital area or can be transferred to our garments/underwear? Silly question but had to ask, curious about it actually. Thanks!

Does HPV only stay in genital area or can be transferred to our garments/underwear? Silly question but had to ask, curious about it actually. Thanks!

Highly unlikely: HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI). HPV is so common that nearly all sexually active men and women get it at some point in their lives. It is most commonly spread during vaginal or anal sex, and can be transmitted even when an infected person has no signs or symptoms. HPV may live on undergarments for a short period of time, but is unlikely to be transmitted in this way. ...Read more

Does HPV virus transfer only when the carrier (host)has an infection (CIN)? Where is HPV located?Only inside the vagina/cervix or thighs/skin outside?

? word games ?: The HPV virus becomes a long term resident of the person it infects. While it is obvious it can transfer while visible lesions are present (like warts), it can also be passed periodically if no lesions exist at all.The sites of residence are those preferred by the strain involved.Wart strains are more external while those cancer related strains are more internal. ...Read more
