Is it true you can get cervical cancer from starting sex at a young age? I started at 14 and only have one partner.We are both HPV free.

Possibly: Having sex at a young age does not by itself cause cervical cancer...Generally if someone starts having sex at a younger age, their likelihood of having multiple sexual partners over their lifetime increases and thus increase the likelihood of getting hpv which can lead to cervical cancer.

Please reply with the answers to my questions and a description of the discharge and any associated symptoms (odor, irritation, itching). Hope to hear from you soon. ...Read more
