What is the best way to prevent your partner from getting HPV if you have it?

by Rachel on June 10, 2011

I’m a female. And I know condoms would help….but would they fully protect from it as long as I don’t have any warts? Because I know warts can show up on places that a condom doesn’t cover, but I don’t have any…so how well would a condom work? And is there anything else that might help even more?

no it doesnt matter if you use a condom with hpv. but if you dont have the hpv with warts and its the hpv that can cause cancer than there really isnt anything hpv will do to the guy.. when it comes down it it hpv is more dangerous for woman than men.

Vaccination. It only protects against a few strains, but those strains are the most likely to cause HPV issues. Gardasil reduces the chance that he will get genital warts by 90%.

Condoms are not very effective at all. They reduce the transmission rate slightly.
