Couldn't find what you looking for?


If I have genital warts on the glans (head) of my penis, will a condom stop my partner - who also has same type of HPV - from developing warts (or anything worse)?

If I perform oral sex on her (and I already have HPV now), do I increase my risk of oral cancer?


Having a condom on and covering the warts of your genitals can help, but it is not a guarantee that your partner will not get HPV as well. Anywhere on your body that you have HPV that's recurring, you do increase your risk of cancer, so if you already have HPV but don't have breakouts around your mouth or in your throat, you would be increasing your risk factor by performing oral sex as well. Have you ever used a dental dam? That's a safe way to enjoy oral sex without increasing your risk.
