Can you contract HPV when using a condom?

by Rachel on May 26, 2011

I was just wondering if you can still contract HPV if you use a condom during intercourse. A friend of mine is dating someone whose ex-wife has it, and she doesn’t want to get it.

Any answers would be extremely helpful!

Thanks!

i would say yes, but i’m not 100% sure. of course you can get it though blood too, cuts scrapes, etc. just be really really careful!!!

A condom will protect against most STD’s. HPV is one of them that it should protect you from IF you have used the condom correctly and there were no breaks in the condom.

I think the person above me is thinking HIV not HPV. HIV is blood transmissible but HPV is not.

YES!!

HPV is skin to skin contact, you could also catch herpes, condoms do not protect areas that are not covered!

Just remember there’s really no such thing as safe sex, unless you’re abstinent!

You cannot contract HPV while sexual intercourse if you are using a condom.

If you think about it, a condom only covers the head and shaft of the penis. Some people have outbreaks of HPV and herpes on the labia, buttocks, inner thighs, pubis, and groin. A condom won’t help if warts or lesions are in those places. So the answer is yes, you can contract HPV even when using a condom. It only offers so much protection.

YES BECAUSE THEIR GENITALS WOULD NOT BE COVERED ONLY HIS PENIS AND HIS INFECTED BALLS WOULD TOUCH HER LIPS. NOW WAY TO BE TRULY SAFE IN SEX UNLESS YOU ARE NOT HAVING SEX AT ALL

Condoms only slow down the infection and they only reduce the odds of transmitting or recieving an STD. The only thing a condom truly prvents is pregnancy, and then you have to use it right.

During sex, the juices go all over the place. Stop and think. Your hands, mouth and other body parts come in contact with other body parts. The juice is spread all over the place. So what good does the condom do when all the rest of you is being exposed. Just think about it.

The only way to avoid STD’s is a monogomus, long term relationshhip (marriage) nwith an un-infected and trustworthy partner. That’s the only safe way no matter what the liberals tell you.

Yes, in blunt terms, the balls are still bare and touching. HPV isn’t localized in any one condom coverable area, and men don’t show symptoms as often as women.
