Do U Have To Be Sexually Active To Get Cervical Cancer?

You do not have to be sexually active to get cervical cancer, but getting it at the age of 13 is extremely rare. Most common ages are from 35-55.

But apparently if you become sexually active before the age of 18 you are at a higher risk of getting it.
This is because immature cells are more vulnerable to the cell mutation caused by HPV.

You don't have to be sexually active to contract HPV... you can be extremely unlucky and get it from something else.. serious.

Seeing that most all cervical cancer is a result of the HPV I would say YES. I am assuming that you are still a virgin and have had no sexual contact yet. If this is the case then you have no risk.

In socio-economic studies, the one single group of women LEAST likely to get cervical cancer are Catholic nuns.
They are typically NOT sexually active.


On the other hand, Catholic nuns are at high risk of having breast cancer.
This is because they typically do not have children.


Go figure.

Cervical cancer and breast cancer are both hormone triggered. They are caused by long term estrogen excess. The hormone prolactin counter acts estrogen and is released by sex and breastfeeding/nipple stimulation so it is more likely that you will get cervical cancer by NOT having sex, tho waiting until you are married is safer.
