HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) is common virus that is spread from person to person through skin-to-skin contact, typically through sexual intercourse, which can be vaginal, anal or oral. There are certain types of HPV that cause cervical cancer, others cause genital warts.

HPV infection usually has no symptoms and can stay hidden within your body for long periods of times. There is no way for medical professionals to know how long you’ve had HPV.
