My boyfriend has hpv. Does that mean that I will get oral cancer because of this?

Unlikely: In the U.S., it is hard to avoid getting exposed to hpv. Oral cancer, though on the rise, is very rare. Most strains of hpv cause hpv warts and abnormal pap smears...But even those usually resolve on their own. They just need to be followed closely by your gynecologist. ...Read more

Most likely: There are over 120 different hpv viruses and many do not cause obvious warts. The longer the exposure the more likely that someone will get the virus, especially if you have not been using any type of protection. There are currently no tests for men unless you have a growth on the genitals. ...Read more

Is it possible I have hpv that causes my partner genital wharts without ever getting it myself? he can't get rid of it and I never had it. 2y together

Absolutely.: After a person has been infected, it may take one to three months (or longer in some cases) for warts to appear. Some people who have been infected never get warts. If you think you have been infected, see your doctor, even if you cannot see warts because certain forms of the virus can cause cervical cancer. ...Read more

I just found out I have oral herpes. What are the chances that the last person i had a sexual relationship with does not have herpes?

I just found out I have oral herpes. What are the chances that the last person i had a sexual relationship with does not have herpes?

Minimal: Oral herpes is usually due to the virus hsv 1. Genital herpes is due to hsv2. Most people have been exposed to hsv1 in early childhood, and this is not sexually transmitted. Hsv 2 is an std and can be transmitted even if the infected person has no active symptoms. Most herpes outbreaks don't require to, but if you have many, painful lesions a dr can prescribe antiviral for symptoms, not cure. ...Read more

I have a wart on my finger, does that mean the HPV virus is permanently in my system?

I have a wart on my finger, does that mean the HPV virus is permanently in my system?

Common warts: No, it doesn't mean permanent HPV. Most HPV infections are cleared by the immune system. The HPV types that cause common warts (hands, feet, etc) are not sexually transmitted. Your wart will clear up with time; or see a doctor for treatment. It's no big deal, nothing to be upset or worried about. ...Read more

Me and my girlfriend have the HPV virus. She's had surgery to cut away the pre-cancerous cells, and I had genital warts. What does this mean for us?

Me and my girlfriend have the HPV virus. She's had surgery to cut away the pre-cancerous cells, and I had genital warts. What does this mean for us?

Keep tabs on it: I'm glad she had the premalignant cells detected and that they will be removed. You can have those nasty warts lasered off or removed by other means. The fact that the two of you have one another and are in a loving relationship is far more of a "plus" than the nuisance of having nasty HPV strains on board. I wish you both the best and hope that your love lasts for a lifetime of happiness. ...Read more

Can you get hpv, the one that causes cervical cancer, by oral sex? My husband had an extra marital affair and he said it was just oral sex. I found on the computer that HPV is tranfered from person to person from body fluids. Is that correct?

Can you get hpv, the one that causes cervical cancer, by oral sex? My husband had an extra marital affair and he said it was just oral sex. I found on the computer that HPV is tranfered from person to person from body fluids. Is that correct?

HPV : Hpv can be transmitted through oral sex as well as kissing with an open mouth. The strains of hpv that cause cervical cancer are also a high-risk factor for developing certain oral cancers. In addition to hpv other std's that are transmitted via oral sex include herpes, syphilis, gonorrhea, hiv(low risk), intestinal parasites (amebiasis), and hepatitis a. So you can tell your husband that "just oral sex" is not just oral sex because it carries a risk of contracting an std and potentially passing it on to an innocent partner. I wish you well. ...Read more

I have HPV and the test that was ran was called "low volume hpv". What is this? Does this mean I have the low risk hpv?

HPV: We are still learning all of the things we should know about hpv. Hpv has over 140 common strains. 13 of those strains can put you at risk for cancer. 4 of the 13 strains cause 95% of the cancers and are the high risk for cancer. The other nine strains are lower risk or lower volume. Please make sure you have gotten the hpv vaccine known in the U.S. As gardisil. ...Read more

How likely is it that I will spread HSV 1 to my baby if I have never had symptoms of the virus but my mother has gotten cold sores for as I remember?

How likely is it that I will spread HSV 1 to my baby if I have never had symptoms of the virus but my mother has gotten cold sores for as I remember?

Herpes simplex: Common. Between half and three-quarters of ordinary people "carry" HSV. Most are not symptomatic. If you have a mouth or lip blister , I wouldn't kiss the baby, but I wouldn't recommend 1/2 to 3/4 of mothers not kiss/touch/cuddle their babies. ...Read more

HPV : Hpv is a viral infection that can be passed thru bodily contact with an infected individual. This virus can live dormant in the body until stimulated, at which time you will typically notice open sores and crusting lesions. You should discuss this with your physician for more information and management. ...Read more

What does this mean for us my girlfriend just found out that she is pregnant, and right after that found out that she has hpv. What should we do.. Is my baby at risk for anything.. What about her?

HPV : Hpv (human papilloma virus) is very common. 1/3 people carry the virus. There are hundreds of different types, the most worrisome being types 16, and 18 which cause cervical cancer. Hpv in pregnancy rarely leads to any complications or issues for the fetus, unless the mother has active warts on her vulva or cervix. In this case her ob/gyn may opt to do a c-section to avoid exposure. Otherwise the pregnancy will be followed as routine, unless there are other separate issues. Keep in mind each doctor is different. Your girlfriend should find out how this doctor managaes hpv in pregnancy. Congrats. All the best. ...Read more

I have hsv1 , 2 how is it that none of the guys i been with. Has gotten hsv. And they never get coldsores. Could this mean i don't shead?

I have hsv1 , 2 how is it that none of the guys i been with. Has gotten hsv. And they never get coldsores. Could this mean i don't shead?

Hard to tell...: HSV isn't very efficiently transmitted. Even after a lifelong marriage and regular sexual contact and kissing, many spouses of infected persons never catch it. Assuming genital HSV2, at age 50 shedding might be infrequent -- but there is at least some transmission risk. Oral HSV1 usually is transmitted only when there is an overt cold sore. Or your partner(s) could be infected without symptoms. ...Read more

My biopsy results were abnormal. The dr said i had condyloma. Does this mean I have low risk hpv? What is the treatment? And will i get genital warts?

My biopsy results were abnormal. The dr said i had condyloma. Does this mean I have low risk hpv? What is the treatment? And will i get genital warts?

Not necessarily: If you are referring to a cervical biopsy, you have cervical hpv. Most condyloma are low risk hpv, but it is possible to be high risk type. Mild dysplasia requires no treatment. 80% of this will clear spontaneously. Generally cervical hpv does not cause external or vulvar warts/condyloma. ...Read more

If I have HPV that causes genital warts can my immune system ever surpress it so that it does not come back ?

MAYBE: These strains often clear eventually with or without treatment. However, they are from a family of viruses that tend to persist in your body for life, seen or unseen. The potential for a recurrence of visible lesions remains.Unfortunately, these strains are not killed off or suppressed by current anti-virals. Vaccines given prior to any sexual activity remains the best way to avoid the issue. ...Read more
