What are the health risks having oral sex with someone who just found out they are positive for cancerous hpv, suggestions to get around it?

What are the health risks having oral sex with someone who just found out they are positive for cancerous hpv, suggestions to get around it?

Nothing immediately: HPV infection can be passed on between the sex partners but it is unpredictable. Even if you caught infection, the immune system would clear it up in >90% of the cases. You can be easily checked for this infection in a few years down the road, if you wanted to be sure that you have it or not. It is one of those infection with which more than half of the US population lives without any concern. ...Read more

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

I have a mild, non-worsening sore throat for two weeks after one-time vaginal oral sex on HPV positive woman with no other STD. Can HPV cause this?

I have a mild, non-worsening sore throat for two weeks after one-time vaginal oral sex on HPV positive woman with no other STD. Can HPV cause this?

Here are some. ..: Generally speaking, HPV-related lesions tend to be asymptomatic and appears with a longer incubation than 2 wks. Therefore, it is reasonable to just watch and see if the current sore throat may slowly fade away like that resulting from viral upper respiratory infection. If not, seek professional evaluation and counseling in one week. Of course, see doc soon if the symptoms worsen. ...Read more

What happens if I had oral sex with someone who carries the HPV virus?

What happens if I had oral sex with someone who carries the HPV virus?

Probably nothing: Oral sex can transmit HPV, but less easily than vaginal or anal sex. Even if HPV is acquired orally, most infections cause no symptoms and are cleared by the immune system. One type of the virus (HPV 16) can cause throat cancer, but the risk is low; the large majority of people with oral HPV 16 don't get cancer. Genital and oral HPV 16 can be prevented by immunization. Get vaccinated! ...Read more

Your risk would depend on whether she was actively shedding virus at the time of exposure, which is hard to predict. If you acquire the virus in your throat it would take years to evolve into a cancer, if it did at all. ...Read more
