In brief: Sex

80% of sexually active women have been exposed to hpv.
Appropriate concern should come in the form of routine gynecologic screening, such as your annual exam and pap smear when indicated. Most people with hpv disease have no symptoms unless it progresses to cause cervical or vulvar lesions such as cancer.
