Not necessarily: Unfortunately hpv in a woman can often be present without the women knowing it. Genital warts are usually painless, so you often don't have any symptoms from them. Furthermore in women it is difficult to actually see everywhere that the warts might be. On a related note if you're known to have hpv, don't forget about regular pap smears! ...Read more
I told partner I had anal HPV before but no outbreak for a year. He said he's clean and insisted on unsafe sex. We sex for 2 hours. He 100% get HPV?
HPV not the problem:
With no recurrence in a year, there's a good chance you are no longer infected. And as a sexually active person, he has had HPV, probably many times; one more exposure won't make a difference. But as men having sex with men, you're at very high risk for more dangerous STDs, like syphilis, even if you know you don't have HIV, or on HIV treatment. Smarten up:
condomless sex remains very unwise. ...Read more
What dr do I see for HPV and what are the procedures for wart removal and are there any perscribed pill to help prevent another outbreak?
I was diagnosed with non-cancerous anal HPV 3 years ago. Now I have outbreak. Why now? They reappear quickly after healed? I always sex with condom.
Immunity issue: Unfortunately HPV is not one of those viruses that is easily cleared from the body. HPV 6 & 11 cause genital warts, which can affect the anus a well. Despite treatment, the virus can lie dormant and when your immunity decreases, can flare. Make sure you get tested for any other STI's (including HIV), avoid smoking/tobacco, get good sleep, and eat healthy. ...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

See Your Doctor: It is good that you got tested for hiv, although it can take 6 weeks or more before you may show positive from a particular encounter. You need to be tested for other more common stds (gc, chlamydia, syphilis) and make sure the diagnosis of what you have is correct. Medication can shorten the symptoms of the herpes, treatment can resolve the molluscum, and help control the hpv. ...Read more
No: Hpv is a virus (human papilloma virus). Viruses tend to appear or disappear based on our immune system and stress. You didn't say what type of birth control you were using, but hormone birth control won't affect genital warts. Using condoms can help prevent contraction of hpv, but not 100% effective. If you're worried about warts, see your doc, they can help you treat them. ...Read more
Usually none: Most HPV infections cause no symptoms at all and nothing abnormal on examination. But some infections cause genital or anal warts, and others can cause cancer. But actual cancer is easily prevented by regular health care. And you can prevent the most important HPV related health problems by immunization. Talk to your primary care doctor about the available vaccines. ...Read more
Timing: Acquisition of genital or vocal warts from delivery are time limited. Transfer of the virus may be silent & would be more likely to occur if there were active genital warts at delivery. If they appear within 2 years of birth the delivery is considered the more likely source. Any emergence after 2-3 years of age will trigger a child sexual abuse investigation in my state. ...Read more
What are the chances of exposing to HPV after receiving blowjob from a sex worker? When can I expect to see symptoms?
Could I get HPV warts from my boyfriend who carried it 11 years ago? He hasn't had any symptoms at all or still? I have pain in organs in a.M
Possible but...: A hx of no recurrent wart after treatment is favorable but not a guaranty of not still being a hpv carrier because many hpv-infected men, like women, have no visible lesion. But at least, we can say he may have strong enough immune ability against hpv even maybe still a carrier. In fact, some 10-15% of the us adult population are positive hpv dna test, yet just some 1% have visible lesion. ...Read more
