Hi Doctor Khan, I tested positive for HPV and gave my partner oral sex, can I pass it on to him from doing that? I previously asked my gyno and he sai

Makes no difference: Maybe I can help while you wait for Dr.Khan. If the two of you have been having sex for sometime, he has already been exposed repeatedly to your genital HPV and you can assume he has it. Maybe he was the source of your infection. You probably don't have it orally, but if you do, oral sex will not change his risk. You can continue your usual sexual practices: no need to change now. It's too late! ...Read more

What happens if you and your partner have hpv, does that mean you can't have oral sex anymore?

What happens if you and your partner have hpv, does that mean you can't have oral sex anymore?

All sex is OK: When one member of a couple has HPV, it can be assumed the other has been repeatedly exposed and probably infected. At that point, there is no need to stop having sex of any kind -- vaginal, anal, oral. Even if you have or get oral HPV, it very rarely leads to cancer or any serious problem of any kind. No worries -- go ahead with unprotected sex of whatever type gives pleasure to both of you. ...Read more

If a man has oral sex with a girl who has HPV can he pass it by kissing another female?

If a man has oral sex with a girl who has HPV can he pass it  by kissing another female?

Yes: Hpv is a family of viruses that live in the cells of mucosal tissue, like that of a woman's cervix or the back or a person's throat. It is the fastest growing std and is probably the reason why young males are the fastest growing group of cancer victims-oral. While oral sex and kissing may transmit the virus, it may not manifest as cancer & can spread it thru sexual activity. Get the vaccine! ...Read more

Is there a chance to get hpv-16 in oral sex for a monogamous couple if both partners took HPV vaccines already?

Impossible question: Probably not. Especially if both have gardisil (this one fact makes me very happy for you both). So, I am unsure why you keep asking this question. There can be no 100% guarantee for you since there is no test for this in the throat. You have done everything you can today to make sure your are healthy and that this insidious virus is kept at bay in your life. ...Read more

Can my partner and I give and recieve oral sex if we both already have HPV? Can we continue to have sex as normal without getting new warts?

It depends: There are many strains of HPV. If you both have the same strain, then there is less of a concern but if your strains are different, you can infect each other with the different strain. This would then lead to new warts. However, even your own HPV can lead to new warts and other problems as it cannot be fully cured and stays in your system. ...Read more

Will my partner contract HPV or genital warts through unprotected or oral sex even though mine have cleared up?

Will my partner contract HPV or genital warts through unprotected or oral sex even though mine have cleared up?

Here are some...: Many adults are HPV carriers with no visible HPV-related lesion on skin or mucosa. So, continue what you have been doing as long as both are free of symptoms or signs for STDs. If being in high risk for STD like ones with multiple partners, bisexual, anal, etc., be tested and counseled for safer sex practice. Note: Complete abstinence is the only way for prevention; that is life reality. ...Read more

Is it still possible for my partner to contract Genital Warts or HPV through unprotected or oral sex even if i no longer have the warts?

Yes, possible...: HPV-free environment is unlikely and many so-affected could be free of its related sign or symptom; the odd to contract under the described scenario will naturally be much less than that with obvious lesion. Life reality tells contact does not mean contract and contract does not mean develop a disease; this reflects individual natural defense mechanism, that is, external barrier & intermal humoral ...Read more

I haven't been able to get a direct answer online. Can a woman get HPV/genital warts from a partner who has cold sores during oral sex?

I haven't been able to get a direct answer online. Can a woman get HPV/genital warts from a partner who has cold sores during oral sex?

Different virus: The cold sores are due to Herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 1 or 2, while the genital warts are caused by strains of the human papilloma virus (HPV). Oral sex with a cold sore may transfer that virus, but not the other. If the person in question also has or has had genital warts, they may be shedding that virus and pass it during genital to genital contact. ...Read more
