If HPV is transmitted through oral sex to a woman, is she at risk for oral and throat cancers, or also cervical cancer?
How is oral HPV transmitted to to mouth. And the female is HPV cervical dysplasia and performs just oral sex one time is it still transmitted.
Oral Sex: In this ongoing quest to give you information about a virus that is ambiguous and difficult to describe and test for, the female in this situation is at so much more risk than the male. The male, if he has not cleared the hpv he got as a younger person, is much more likely to be passing this on to the female than the other way around. ...Read more
Tests, tests: All tests have their limitations. First there is the data collection. Did the doc swab you well? Then was the swab transported to the lab correctly? Then how sensitive was the test? There are many different serotypes of HPV. If you are 28 now hopefully you got 3 Guardasil shots as a teen and are protected. Call your pediatrician and ask his/her nurse if you did? ...Read more
Warts, cancer (rare): Oral HPV usually causes no symptoms at all. Rarely warts inside the mouth; more rarely, cancer of the throat. The vast majority of oral HPV causes neither problem and clears up on its own. But warts and maybe cancer are more common in people with immune deficiency, especially due to HIV (maybe on your mind, since you're in Uganda?). If you think you have oral warts, HIV testing is necessary. ...Read more

Extremly unlikely: HPV is rarely if ever transmitted mouth to genitals. It can be acquired in the mouth by oral sex, but rarely goes in the other direction. However, you can expect to have HPV someday; almost all sexually active people are eventually infected, mostly from genital or anal sex, not oral. That's why you and all young people need HPV vaccine, to prevent infection with the most troublesome HPV types. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it possible to get oral hpv after 22 years Have past since I have been with the partner that gave it to me?
Very unlikely: Confusing question. Are you saying you caught genital HPV from a partner 22 years ago, and now wonder whether you could have inoculated your own mouth/throat recently? That is very unlikely, since your genital infection probably is long gone. If you wonder whether you caught oral HPV 22 years ago, it might have happened. But if so that infection probably also is long gone. ...Read more
Yes, but...: Nobody knows the degree of risk because there are too many unknowns, such as: does the other person have the virus, how much virus does she have, what exactly is oral sex for that couple, how many total minutes of exposure per episode, how many episodes, how much total virus gets into the guy's mouth, etc., etc... So, in life, if a person is a "worrier", he has to play it safe and not do stuff. ...Read more
