How likely is it to transfer HPV having sex with an infected person only once?

Anyone have any statistics? For male to female, and vice versa?

Haha HPV is caused by skin to skin contact that means condom or no condom. But like 70% of people have it so dont worry if ya didnt get it know you will probably get it later. And if you only had sex once you might have escaped it if it wasnt sloppy sex and if you used a condom. HPV isnt the one you should be worried about try HIV so always keep a hat on!

There aren’t any real statistics out there which advise how likely it is to transmit it from male to female and vice versa.

Statistics state that if you have had 2 or more sex partners in your lifetime, then you are already a HPV candidate.

I don’t think there are any statistics on that. It doesn’t matter how many people a person sleeps with, all they need is one person who has the virus to become infected. Of course sleeping with more people increases your chances of getting an STD, but if a person chooses to have sex there is ALWAYS a chance they can contract something.

I personally contract HPV and genital herpes at the same time. I got both viruses from the second guy I had ever had sex with. I only slept with him ONE time. So, obviously, it only takes ONE time.

Statistics are full of it. They only interview 10 people then double it for it to be a statistic.

HPV can be passed on even if your not wearing protection, you can be infected using sharing a towel with the infected person. Alot of people have iti contracted it off a guy i was going out with for a year, he slept with heaps of girls and came back to me and gave me HPV with genital warts. You can get rid of them but not the actual virus.

it only takes one time. the person may have it and it has not shown up yet. it can take up to three to six years for hpv to show up sometimes sooner in some cases. once is all you need. if the male ends up with warts on his penis then he has hpv. the woman can only find out through a pap.
