It is important that people understand that even if you cannot see active warts, this is a virus which is very contagious and the responsible thing to do is inform any partners with whom you were or become involved with so they can get themselves checked as well. Whether high or low risk HPV can be contagious at any time as it remains dormant for long periods of time and can recur. With 80% of sexually active adults estimated to have HPV it's a wonder people know so little about it. I feel the CDC has not done enough to educate the public regarding this virus and should do much more. Unfortunately physicians don't know enough in most cases either or fail to follow guidelines for dealing with high risk HPV treatment.
