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.
