Not really. I suppose if that person then put their finger on their genitals they might run a risk. Genital warts prefer the skin on your gentials. They are not the same as the warts that might show up on your fingers and vice versa. You'll notice the skin on your hands is very different than the skin on your genitals.

Next time you and your partner do this - make sure they have no cuts on their fingers, and have them wash their hands right afterward. Better yet, if you're really worried - ask them to wear a latex glove!

Yes, you can pass HPV to a partner. HPV is spread by skin-to-skin contact with an infected person.

No. If you have not had HPV and, you cannot pass along.

No. If what your partner tells you is true, you should not get HPV.

There is no test that can demonstrate that your partner does not have HPV.

A person can have HPV for many years before it is found or causes health problems. So there is no way to know if your partner gave you HPV, or if you gave HPV to your partner. HPV should not be seen as a sign that you or your partner is having sex outside of your relationship.

HPV is passed on through genital contact-most often during vaginal and anal sex. HPV may also be passed on during oral sex. Since HPV usually causes no symptoms, most men and women can get HPV-and pass it on-without realizing it. People can have HPV even if years have passed since they had sex. Even men with only one lifetime sex partner can get HPV.

Not as dangerous as HPV is for the female partner, since HPV places females at increased risk of cervical cancer.

Yes HPV can be transmited by a male partner.

HPV does not cause herpes and is an unrelated virus. Herpes is caused by HSV. If a woman has HPV or HSV, she could spread them to her partner during sex.

Yes you can get HPV using the rhythm method if your partner is infected with HPV.

A person that is infected with the genital wart virus, HPV, can pass the virus to a partner at any time.

User Avatar

Yes you can still pass it on to your partner if you have unprotected sex. A pap smear can't tell you if you do or don't have HPV. A pap smear only looks for damage to the cells of the cervix caused by high-risk HPV. For instance, people with genital warts can have normal Pap smears.

Cervical cancer is not contagious. However the virus, HPV, is sexually transmitted. There is a strong association between HPV infection and cervical cancer.

User Avatar

Only if your partner is infected with HPV.

User Avatar

It can be HPV, however, it is difficult to determine by words, I suggest you visit a doc and get it examined. Remember HPV is a sexually transmitted disease so if your partner has similar symptoms it can be.

User Avatar

Yes; it is possible and likely.

User Avatar

Yes, HPV is still prevalent.

User Avatar

No, not necessarily. Cervical cancer is not always caused by the HPV virus and can be for a variety of reasons. Therefore, it is not necessarily because her partner has/had HPV, however this possibility should not be ruled out.

Once infected with HPV, the virus always remains in the body.
