How do I have genital warts and HPV?

by Rachel on June 16, 2011

I have H.P.V, but it is the high one not the low one. So the one that I have is the one that causes cervical cancer NOT Genital warts. So I’m just trying to understand how I have both with out having the H.P.V that causes genital warts. I don’t know if that makes any since but I’m confused. Any answers?

there are many strains of the Human Papilloma Virus and of course the most dangerous strains (commonly 16 and 18) that cause cervical cancer. this is why papsmears are recommended each year because you may have no idea you have the virus because it may not produce the actual warts.

how you got it, well most likely a male carrier (which most men are and do not realize it).

I know a gal who wasn’t active with men yet and suspects she got it through use of a towel that her sister had used and she used same towel soon after not knowing her sister has it. She found out about a year later that her sister has it.

There are different strains as you know… HPV and genital warts are the same thing, they are not different, interchangeable names.
