Dr. Jones explains if a young girl can acquire the Human Papillomavirus/HPV virus and never even know.
Yes, it is possible to have HPV virus without ever knowing, yes; 80 to 85% of the population have HPV. Now it doesn’t mean it's going to lead to an abnormal pap smear. It doesn’t mean it’s going to lead to cervical cancer, but 80-85% of the sexually active population has HPV; that’s men and women.
