Can still transmit: Even when the virus is dormant (when one is not having a wart/lesion, etc) it can still be transmitted. It is not a guarantee that he would contract the infection, but it is still a definite possibility and (unfortunately), condoms have not been shown to provide reliable prevention of hpv.

On December 11th I received a protected oral sex from a CSW, it was brief 1 or 2 min. What are my risk from Genital Warts form this exposure.

Protected means?: If the protection was working, the risk is tiny... call it 0% chance (mathematically rounding off). Of course, different people have differing ideas of what "protection" is, and how protected one must be before one uses the word "protected". Life is full of uncertainties... and spending time with sex workers just happens to be one of them. ...Read more

I have never had sex, yet I fear that I may have genital warts?

I have never had sex, yet I fear that I may have genital warts?

Here are some. ..: Your fear for contracting HPV is understandable. Clinically, you're free of it, suggesting either you never got it or you have coped with it well. Fact: Some 1% of sexually active adults in the US have wart although some 10-15% of the US population are tested positive for HPV DNA; this implies many HPV-infected are free of clinical disease of warts. So, I wouldn't spend much time to worry about it ...Read more

Both males and females can get this vaccine. ...Read more

Does HPV genital warts 100% came with sex, or can the body make them?

Person to person: The viruses that cause these specialize in sexual transmission.
