Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


How can we conceive a child without me contracting HPV, considering that my husband has the infection?

Answered by Dr. Azela Glady


Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


HPV is transmitted through skin-to-skin sexual contact during oral, anal, and vaginal intercourse. While most genital HPV strains are benign, certain high-risk strains can contribute to cancers like cervical cancer. Reducing the risk can be achieved through HPV vaccination, regular screening, and testing.
