What causes hpv besides sexual activity?



preferably from a doctors point of view

There are over 120 different kinds of HPV and about 30 of those kinds are sexually transmitted.

Any kind of sex (vaginal, oral, or anal) can spread HPV and DIRECT skin to skin contact with the infected area of a person who has it. HPV can also be spread from a mother to her baby during birth. This is REALLY rare though and can be avoided by a C-section if the mother has warts present during delivery. Source(s): Personal experience. I have had HPV for 6+ years. I have had genital warts and cervical cancer from it.
Hi there,

HPV virus is common and infects at least 50% of all people who have sex at some time in their lives. Often, people don交 have any symptoms and the HPV infection goes away on its own. Some types of HPV can lead to cervical cancer or cancer of the anus or penis.

HPV stands for human papillomavirus but there are actually more than 100 related viruses in this group. Each HPV virus is given a number or type. The term "papilloma" refers to a kind of wart that results from some HPV types.

HPV viruses live in the body's epithelial cells. These are flat and thin cells found on the skin's surface and also on the surface of the vagina, anus, vulva, cervix, penis head, mouth, and throat.

Of the 100 HPV types, about 60 types cause warts on areas such as the hands or feet. The other 40 or so types of HPV are sexually transmitted and are drawn to the body's mucous membranes, such as the moist layers around the anal and genital areas.

These sexually-transmitted HPV viruses are spread through contact with infected genital skin, mucous membranes, or bodily fluids. HPV can infect skin not normally covered by a condom, so using a condom does not fully protect you from the virus. Also, many people don交 realize they交e infected with HPV and may have no symptoms, so neither sexual partner may realize that the virus is being spread.

Not all of the 40 sexually transmitted HPV viruses cause serious health problems. High-risk HPV viruses include HPV 16 and 18, which cause about 70% of cervical cancers. Other high-risk HPV viruses include 31, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 58 and a few others.

Low-risk HPV viruses, such as HPV 6 and 11, cause about 90% of genital warts, which rarely develop into cancer. Genital warts can look like bumps or growths. Sometimes they are shaped like cauliflower. The warts can show up weeks or months after exposure to an infected sexual partner.

About 20 million people in the U.S. are infected at any time, according to the CDC. And three-fourths of sexually active people between ages 15 and 49 have been infected at some point in their lives, according to estimates from the American Social Health Association.

Hope this helps.

Cheers.

there is no other cause. it is highly contagious (can be spread through contact alone) and sometimes is undetectable for many years or goes away on its own. it is now being linked to throat cancer also from oral sex.
NOTHING if you have warts you have had sexual contact..no excuses not lies that is it........
