Sexually Transmitted Infections
Posted on: 06/04/2008
My boyfriend and I lost our virginity together. after 2 years the doctor told me that i was infected by HPV (only by looking at me) without any other exam. we have had contact only with each other. can it be possible?
It's certainly possible to get HPV from skin to skin contact, or possibly skin to hand to skin contact, without having sexual intercourse. This type of wart virus does prefer the genital area, though, so usually contact with it occurs during intimate interactions.
