HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) comes in many strains. Some strains cause warts on hands and feet. Other strains cause genital warts. And there are other strains that don't cause warts, but carry a risk of cancer, especially cervical cancer. You don't automatically get cancer if you have it, but you are more likely to get it.HPV is one of those viruses that your body can never fully get rid of, because it hides in normal body cells. Even though the cancer has been removed, the virus will still be in your girlfriend's body. Condoms will reduce the risk of getting infected, but not eliminate it. Generally males are much less likely to develop cancer if they have the infection - obviously they can't get cervical cancer. The risk depends on which strain it is.
ok, that fuckin sucks...like i wouldnt really mind having the hpv if i knew i was going to marry her or something cause if i dont have warts than its just a virus...i have warts, like on my hand and stuff. i wound up talking to her about it and she said the same exact thing u did. thanks for the help...i really like this girl and i dont want this shit to really be in the way. but i also do not think im really going to marry her or nething...so its not worth risking it cause than ill give another girl that shit......this is a no good situation...one more question...can she give it to me by giving me head...cause i can deal w. not fuckin her or just fuckin her from time to time w. a condom on and being EXTREMELY CAREFUL and always getting some dome...thats all good by me. cause if someone makes me happy than im goin to be w. them
I don't know what the chances are of your getting it from her giving you head. Normally, I'd say low, but it is a very contagious virus. Even sex with a condom is risky.
I think if you don't see a long-term future with this girl, it's only right to tell her so.
