Genital Warts-Yes: Genital warts are caused by the human papilloma virus (HPV), and are highly infectious; easily transmitted via skin to skin contact (not just penis to vagina/anus/mouth). 90% of genital warts are caused by HPV subtypes 9 & 11, which can be prevented (but not treated) by the HPV (Gardasil) vaccine.

I got HPV with no warts and i had the shots before it! i was wondering if my partner never had the shots is it possible for him to get warts?

HPV : First and foremost your boyfriend needs the hpv vaccine. That is an absolute must! second there are over 140 strains of hpv. Thirteen strains cause most of the deadly disease, four cause 95% of the cancers we see in the U.S. Gardisil protects against these four strains. Most young adults (96% in some studies) are exposed to hpv by age 26. Your boyfriend very well may already have hpv as wel. ...Read more

Was told I had low risk hpv no warts was told see her back in to 6mo could I really have it even if my partner was tested for it an doesn't have it ?

Was told I had low risk hpv no warts was told see her back in to 6mo could I really have it even if my partner was tested for it an doesn't have it ?

All is well: Most HPV infections cause no disease. Your positive HPV test doesn't necessarily mean you had a wart causing type of the virus. Only 2 types cause almost all warts; there are over 50 other low risk types. CDC and other health experts recommend that your partner doesn't even need to see a doctor (and didn't need HPV testing) unless he sees actual warts. Talk to doctor about getting HPV vaccine! ...Read more

If my partner and i both have HPV but i was treated and have no warts now could i get warts again if I have intercourse?

Yes: The wart viruses are notoriously hard to clear from the skin. This includes the hpv virus. Although the visible wart can be "cured" with various treatments, the wart virus may remain on the skin and cause reoccurrence of the wart later. Talk to your gynecologist or dermatologist about the possible value of hpv vaccine in your situation. ...Read more

Hpv transmission after laser surgery? should I be worried? im a male and I had the warts removed, new partner and I don't want to hurt her. thank

Hpv transmission after laser surgery?
should I be worried? im a male and I had the warts removed, new partner and I don't want to hurt her. thank

Use condoms: You can remove the obvious warts with laser/freeze them or burn them with various chemicals. They can also disappear on their own in time. However, this family of viruses is capable of returning anytime and can shed without obvious warts. Condoms can help prevent transmission but is not 100%.It is possible you will never shed virus or have recurrence, but this germ may be with you for life. ...Read more

If i bin treated for HPV .. Sprayed .. No more bumbs she said i'm wart free .. Can i start my life with my new partner .. Can we be fully intimate ?

If i bin treated for HPV .. Sprayed .. No more bumbs she said i'm wart free .. Can i start my life with my new partner .. Can we be fully intimate ?

Must use condom: Unfortunately we don't know when or if hpv disappears from the skin. It can stay latent for years before warts ever show up. Hpv can stay in the skin even after the visible warts have been treated. We sometimes see recurrence after many years of being wart-free. Hpv tests also can go from (+) to (-). Certain hpv types can cause cervical or anal cancer. Please protect your partner and use a condom. ...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?

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

Let him know: Better to let him know that you have HPV. Also when having sex important to use condoms for penile -vaginal sex or penile- anal sex and dental dams if he is giving you oral sex. Safer sex techniques will decrease the risk of HPV transmission as well as other STIs. ...Read more

If I have hpv can I ever have sex again? will the warts come back even if I don't have sex? would I have to tell every new partner about this? scared

HPV: Hi Marissa, yes you can still have intercourse if you have HPV. There is a possibility of recurrence as the virus lays dormant in cells for variable amounts of time even after treatment as well as abstention. Since your partner is at risk of contracting the virus from you, you should disclose this information to them. Make sure to follow up with your physician for cervical cancer screening. ...Read more

Male:When my HPV warts are gone, should I feel obligated to tell all future partners of my infection which showed symptoms? I know condoms aren't 100%

Yes...: it would be honorable of you to tell them and be very truthful. I also recommend getting tested to determine the strain of HPV virus and to have the saliva test for HPV done also. (www.OralDNA.com) Certain strains of HPV viruses have been known to cause or be associated with several different cancers. Consult with your PCP. ...Read more

Am a 50 year old widow been treated for HPV virus for 28 years had same partner for 27 years what can I do to start new life had approximately 7 warts removed in life of virus  no bad paps

There : There in cure for hpv. The good news is that the strains that cause warts do not cause cervical cancer. However you need to continue with yearly pap smears. If you are worried about speading the virus, or contracting other strains for that matter, you should use condoms with any new partners. This is a good idea anyway especially if you are going to be in a new relationship(s). You can start your new life by being safe and responsible with the use of condoms. Take care and enjoy your life! ...Read more

3yrs relatnship with bfriend (also 1st sex partner). We planin to cmmit. I was diagnosed with HPV but now paps test r nrmal. He'got warts, tho.Can we hv unprotected sex? Will w b able to hv children?

Yes to both: You have both been exposed to the hpv viruses. The strain which causes warts is low risk for cervical cancer. You may get a wart eventually but it is easily managed. One option is aldara, (imiquimod) a cream that will help with the wart issue. I would probably use condoms when someone has a wart but if you stay monogamous, in time the virus may clear. It will not create issues of fertility. Gd luc. ...Read more
