Hpv Virus Information Anyone?

Postby Einar » Fri Sep 15, 2017 1:58 pm

Ok, so I have read (and heard) from numerous places that the HPV virus can cause mouth cancer (oral) cervical cancer, this cancer, that cancer etc etc etc... But for the life of me I cannot find out where it all starts as such.

So is it, in effect, a sexually transmitted infection, disease, virus, whatever you want to call it.. or do we all have it?

Myself, and my girlfriend are each others first, and have never been sexually active with others, so in theory (bar a freak toilet seat transmission or something mad (if they can actually happen?)) should we be free of any HPV virus?

Its an STD.There are lots of strains (types) of the HPV virus and not all cause cancer. HPV is also the cause of genital warts, which it is more commonly known as.

However the types that cause the warts dont commonly cause cancer.

Yes it is an STI.

Yes you are free of any HPV virus.

No you don't have anything to worry about.

Have fun ;)
