If you don't have genital warts can you give your partner genital warts?

If an individual has human papillomavirus (HPV), that individual can give genital warts to the sexual partner even if he himself (or she herself) doesn't have them. HPV is the virus that causes all kinds of warts, and there are specific types of HPV that cause genital warts. Not everyone who has HPV has warts, so a person may be carrying the virus and not know it. If an infected person (without warts) had sex with another, he or she may transmit the virus to that other person, who may develop the symptoms (wart growths). Keep in mind that the warts themselves are treatable with medical procedures (surgery, cryotherapy, electrodesiccation, etc) and topical treatments (Wartscide, etc), but HPV isn't.

Yes, you can get HPV on your body. HPV is a very large group of viruses that cause warts.

Genital HPV is passed through genital contact-most often during vaginal and anal sex. HPV may also be passed on during oral sex and from genital-genital contact without sex.

Even men with only one lifetime sex partner can get HPV.


Can the HPV vaccine Gardasil be given to men?

Yes. A recent study has shown that Gardasil is 90% effective at preventing genital warts in males. Genital warts are caused by HPV (Human Papiloma Virus). Genital warts are responsible for most penile and rectal cancer, and by vaccinating against HPV, these men are protected from penile and rectal cancer caused by HPV. Giving the vaccine to men will also mean that they can not transmit HPV to their female partners. This would greatly reduce the risk of cervical cancer due to HPV infections in women. If all boys and girls were vaccinated for HPV, the HPV virus would be eliminated, causing rates of cervical, penile, and rectal cancer to drop by 80%. For the vaccine to be effective it must be given before an individual is exposed to HPV. This is why the vaccine should be given in childhood, usually between the ages of 9 and 14. However the vaccine can and should be given to men of any age, as it reduces the risk of getting HPV, genital warts, and penile and rectal cancers caused by HPV. At this point doctors can give the HPV vaccine Gardasil to males as an off label use. The label for Gardasil should be updated by the summer of 2009 to indicate its use for prevention of HPV infection, genital warts, penile cancer, and rectal cancer in males.
