If a person contracts hpv and received the gardasil shot can they still give their virus to your partner ? ( no warts)
If still infectedYes: If person clears of HPV ( no longer infected ) will not infect others as as no longer infected. Mostly 4 sub types are responsible , if infected by one , vaccination will prevent other 3 types.

I know someone who has HPV virus of the anus and i accidentally ate ice cream off of a spoon she did. i haven't had the guard shot yet, can i catch it?
No Cons: The Gardasil shot is a vaccine that protects you against two low risk hpv types and two high risk types of hpv. The vaccine does not contain any virus. It is quite safe.

Can i get HPV from HPV vaccine? Is it possible for the HPV vaccine shot to give me the HPV virus?
I received the HPV shots back in High School. Does that mean I cannot get the virus? My doctor is afraid I might have it in my throat.
Not exactly: There are over 40 different types of HPV virus. The Cervarix vaccine is a vaccine against HPV types 16 & 18. The Gardasil vaccine is a vaccine against HPV types 6, 11, 16, & 18. These were chosen because 16 & 18 are the most common cause of Cervical Cancer while 6 and 11 are the most common cause of genital warts. The vaccine doesn't protect against the less common types.
