Since HPV is so contagious, is it true almost every girl has it?

Girls that are really promiscuous most likely have HPV? Even if they used condoms with every guy they’ve been with?

anyone who has had intimate sexual contact is at-risk. However, the risk of getting HPV does increase with the number of people you’ve had sex with and will also depend on the sexual history of those people.
Using condoms does reduce the risk of getting HPV. However it doesn’t mean you can’t get HPV because the virus can be spread from areas of the body that a condom doesn’t cover. Remember you can get HPV through intimate sexual contact.

HPV can easily be transmitted even with a condom as it lives on the skin. Most women who are sexually active, unless they have been immunized, will have it at least once. The good news is it often goes away after a few years.
