Oral Sex

Can HPV be transmitted through oral sex, and when dealing with a partner that had HPV, how can one best protect themselves in sexual situations?

Re: Oral Sex

Yes. HPV can be transmitted through oral. Honestly, there isn't a way to protect yourself 100%; even if using protection, such as condoms etc. What I don't think people realize is that everyone is pretty much affected with this; however, it's like any other disease/virus, it just depends on the situation your body is going through on whether or not it comes out of dormancy and begins to escalate. The bad thing is that right now there isn't a way for men to be tested for this virus. I believe the only way they can be tested is if they have visible warts and the doctor can go from there and diagnosed them.
