Unfortunately, there are many myths and misconceptions about genital HPV, and in some cases these can cause real harm.
When you have HPV infection, chances are your sex partner has got it as well.
How can HPV be treated?
However, thus far there is no diagnostic test that can accurately determine whether a man is carrying an HPV infection.
However, if you are already sexually active, you should still get vaccinated.
HPV also causes genital warts.
The infection, transmitted through genital contact, is the primary cause of cervical cancer, which affects about 10, women in the United States each year.
Studies are looking at whether HPV can be also transmitted through indirect contact, such as sharing underwear or towels.
In short, the risk of HPV transmission is there, though the HPV types associated with cervical cancer usually do not cause health problems for a man having sex with HPV-infected woman.
