needs some answers

Hi you guys seem to know laot about hpv...my sister was just told shes positive for it..had a normal pap test..her doc said that nothing needs to be done becasue the pap was normal..i just dont get it..does it have to always be sexually transmitted? if she has no symptoms at all will she ever get any? the doc said not to worry about it, its not a big deal and could have been floating around in her for years..she has no idea where it came from and shes completely fine with no problems..we are stumped..

Re: needs some answers

most people are asymptomatic and the virus is fairly common. just make sure to have her get regular screenings for cervical cancer and practice safe sex / inform partners of possible transmission
