HPV is easily transmitted through skin-to-skin sexual contact with a person who has it. It contracts when the vulva, vagina, cervix, penis, or anus touches another person's genitals or mouth and throat, usually during sex. You can get HPV if you have vaginal, anal, or oral sex with a person who has the virus. Most often, it spreads during vaginal or anal sex.
It also spreads through direct skin-to-skin contact during sexual intercourse. A person with HPV can transmit the infection to another person even if they have no signs or symptoms. It usually spreads during anal or vaginal sex. HPV can be spread even when an infected person has no signs or symptoms.
HPV is not transmitted through body fluids such as semen or saliva, but through skin-to-skin contact. This happens more easily through sexual contact, such as vaginal, anal, and oral sex. But it can also happen if HPV comes into contact with a mucous membrane (such as the mouth, lips, anus, and parts of the genitals) or with a rupture of the skin, such as a vaginal tear. Genital HPV spreads through contact (contact) with the skin of a person who has an HPV infection.
Contact includes vaginal, anal, and oral sex. Some types of HPV cause genital warts, which are hard, rough bumps that grow on the skin. Anyone who is sexually active can get HPV and genital warts. Human papillomavirus, or HPV, is the most common sexually transmitted infection.
Nearly 80 million Americans are infected and about 14 million are infected each year. In fact, most sexually active people get HPV at some point in their lives. The virus spreads easily through skin-to-skin sexual contact. Since there is a vaccine for this disease, you may be surprised to learn that HPV (human papillomavirus) is still the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States.
