Hi there,

To be fair and answer everyone's questions on time, please keep any follow up questions in your original thread (like your original HPV post, in this case).

While the risk of transmitting the virus is highest when there are visible warts, transmission can be spread when no outward signs of HPV are present. 
  • Notify your partner that you have HPV and make any decisions about sex, protection, and your health together.
  • Use condoms during each and every anal, vaginal, or oral sexual encounter.
  • Suggest that your sexual partner(s) get a medical evaluation and an HPV screening.
