I was checked for HPV. Sometimes they do a procedure such as a colposcopy to check to see how severe your HPV is.
I was given the okay for labor and delivery. Usually it will not effect anything.
But I’d ask my doctor.

NO, the baby cannot get it through birth .. 1 in 4 women have HPV .. its the most common STD there is!
you are at risk for HPV by having sex! anyone who has ever had sex (even virgins) can get HPV the first time the 2 virgins have sex together.
Don’t worry about it … your baby is just fine.
Your doctor will do a pap at your first appt. and then do one before delivery ( to make sure there are no warts) .. and if all shows clear .. you can have a normal vaginal delivery.
They say that sometimes getting pregnant and having a baby can cause the HPV to clear up quicker because of the cell changes from the pregnancy.

good luck! God bless!
