Human Papillomavirus

(HPV)

Don't be silly, wrap your willy!

Transmission:

The HPV virus is spread through sexual contact (vaginal, oral, or anal.) It is unlikely, but it can also be given from mother to child during birth.

Symptoms:

Most times HPV has no symptoms.

Some symptoms are warts that may itch, hurt, or feel uncomfortable, but they mostly don't.

Treatment:

No cure gets rid of HPV, but treatments lower the number of warts. Some treatments include medication, or getting rid of warts with laser therapy or chemical freezing.
