Passing HPV

This may sound like a dumb question, but here goes. I have mild dysplasia. Can I give the HPV virus to my partner? I dont have warts or anything like that.

Re: Passing HPV

From what I have read, just having dysplasia does NOT necessarily mean you have HPV, although HPV is the most likely culprit. Did you have an HPV test performed or are you just assuming you have the virus?

As to being able to pass it, yes, you definately can. All strains of HPV are extremely contageous. I have read accounts of them finding HPV on a person's HANDS, so you don't even have to have sex in order to contract the virus! Scary! HPV is so common that it is estimated that everyone will have it at some point in their lifetime. However, there are MANY different strands. Some, low-risk, cause gential warts or plantar's warts on the hands and feet. Some, high-risk, are the ones that cause cervical cancer. Certainly not all of them cause warts. I have high-risk HPV and have never had warts. My doctor informed me I never will. The type I have just doesn't cause them.

Re: Passing HPV

Essentially all cases of dysplasia are caused by HPV. Not everyone will have HPV. Rather, about 80% of sexually active adults will eventually get HPV.

Monroefan, yes if you have HPV you can easily pass it to your partner.
