Um…are you a Lezbian, because that is just plain wrong and nasty. I am sorry if I offended you, but I thought I’ve heard that in some religion, you are meant to be with the opposite sex. Not the same sex. Once again sorry if I insulted your sexual preference, but I am only stating my oppinion.

definitely…….you can pass it to male or female by direct contact with the infected site or through vaginal secretions which skin flakes from the infected site have mixed with

Yes it is a highly contagious disease. My friend got it and she filled me in on some things.

Yes, it is contagious, and it can (an most of the time WILL) turn into cervical dysplasia.

Be careful.

yes but the only way to so would be through contact and exchange of bodily fluids. things like sharing the same dildo will put anyone at high risk of infection due to during penetration the vaginal walls literally get small tears where blood and other bodily fluids can either go into or come out of.

Okay, they person in med school better not be graduating any time soon . . . HPV is transmitted through SKIN TO SKIN contact, not bodily fluids. Therefore, female-female intercourse will put you at risk of getting HPV.

Actually, it rarely turns into cervical cancer. It CAN cause cervical cancer but rarely does. Make sure you get regular pap tests.

Yes, the person that said it is skin to skin contact is correct. Just wanted to add that the type that is linked to cervical dysplasia (abnormal cells) is not the same type that will cause genital warts.

Women who are having sex with women can still get the same stds that women who are having sex with men can get.

And truly, if it offends you that someone is having same sex sexual contact, why not just move on to the next question instead of insulting the asker?

HPV can only be transmitted with the shedding of fresh live cells and doesn’t linger on clothing or other surfaces. It’s very unlikely you could contract it from towels or shared clothing.” says Magdalene Karon, M.D., an OB/GYN based in Lexington, Kentucky. So, sweetheart, you didn’t catch HPV from your female friend, but it’s possible that you contracted it from someone other than your one lover, through sexual activity that didn’t end in intercourse. Skin-to-skin contact of the genital area can pass along the virus, so you can pick it up when simply rolling around naked with a boyfriend, even if you don’t go all the way.

yes.You can spread it even by skin contact or by “beso beso” to anyone. Actually it is the virus that can cause skin tags.

Human Papillomavirus, or HPV, is the most common viral STD in the world. HPV is the virus that causes warts, any kind of wart; the wart you have on your elbow, the plantar’s wart on the bottom of your foot, the skin tags on your neck and genital warts. There are more than 70 different kinds of HPV – and 30 of these cause genital HPV.

Lesbian women are at just as much of a risk for contracting HPV as heterosexual women. However, there are ways to reduce the risk of transmission, such as not sharing sex toys, having only one partner with their pants off at a time, washing hands before and after sexual activity and bathroom activity, making sure that the infected partner never touches his/her genitals and then the other person’s genitals.
