hpv

If you already have hpv, can you spread to others if you use protection?

Re: hpv

Yes. It is spread by skin to skin contact, not through body fluids.

Re: hpv

What about if you hug, shake hands and by kissing? Can it be spread that way? Please answer soon. Thanks.

Re: hpv

No you cannot get or spread HPV by kissing, hugging or shaking hands.

Re: hpv

Actually, if you want to get technical, yes you can spread it by kissing and shaking hands (not hugging though, because there doesn't have to be skin to skin contact for that). Since HPV includes the strains that also cause regular body warts, including plantars and palmars warts, how do you think little kids get warts on their hands? Certainly not from having sex. They pick it up from touching other kids.

So it stands to reason that simply shaking hands can do it. But if you're only talking about genital warts or the cervical cell changing kinds, you'd have to wonder where their hands have been and where you put your hands. As for kissing, why not? People can carry the virus in their mouths (oral sex) and do get mouth and throat cancer (very rarely but it does happen).
