About 40 strains are considered to be a sexually transmitted infection (STI).
If you have questions about your diagnosis, your partner will likely have some, too. Find out whether your strain is considered to be high or low risk. Others may put you at a higher risk for cancer or warts.
Knowing what the virus is, what needs to happen, and what it means for your future can help the two of you avoid unnecessary fears.
These types of HPV are passed through skin-to-skin genital contact. And anyone who is sexually active is at risk for contracting the virus or spreading it to a partner.
This typically happens through vaginal, anal, or oral sex. It’s possible to have HPV without showing symptoms for several years, if ever.Because HPV can go undetected for so long, you may not realize that you have the STI until after you’ve been in several sexual relationships.This can make it difficult to know when you first became infected.It doesn’t mean that you or your partner (or previous partners) did anything wrong.Partners tend to share strains of the virus between them, which means it’s almost impossible to know where the infection started.You are not required to submit any information that makes you uncomfortable.
