Re: Are men carriers for HPV or can a women give it to a man?

Yes - both. Men can be carriers and women can give it to men. HPV does not discriminate, it is a STD. Unless it is the strain that causes visible warts men or woman would never know they have it unless specifically tested for. The high risk strains (that do not cause visible warts) are known to cause cervical dysplasia in women. This is how many women come to find out that they have HPV. You could also have HPV and never have any problems, it could remain dormant for a lifetime.
