HPV occurs all over the genital area, beyond where condoms cover. Condoms offer limited protection, and do lower the risk of contracting HPV, but are not 100% effective.

No HPV doesn’t protect you that much.

There are two different types of HPV, there is the type with warts and the type that is on your cervix. I dont know if it makes any difference, but I think condoms would help protect from the type that is on your cervix, but not so much with the warts as those can be on areas of the skin not covered by the condom.

No! HPV is transmitted through skin to skin contact.
