What is the incubation period for HPV warts?
No risk of Hpv
Hello. Thank you for writing to us
I am Dr. Kakkar (Dermatologist and Venereologist).
Genital HPV is commonly caused by HPV types 6,11. The virus is acquired by either direct skin to skin heterosexual contact or rarely through unprotected ora-genital sex from a partner with oral warts.
However there is no risk of HPV if the oral sex was protected because a condom would serve as a barrier for direct sexual contact. Secondly, a handjob whether protected or unprotected is absolutely safe in terms of risk of transmitting HPV.
The incubation period between HPV infection and development of genital warts is variable varying between a few days to 18-20 months after infection.
Let me know if you're having any further queries..
No risk of high risk genital hpv in you or wife through these particular ac
No. There is no risk of acquiring high risk genital HPV types through an act of protected oral sex or a hand job. So, there is no question of you passing it further on to your wife. If your wife were to develop a postive Pap smear it us certainly not because of these 2 incidents
Scrotal skin would'nt be infected just by contact with infectious secretion
No risk of developing warts from these 2 incidents. Intact scrotal skin is much more resistant as compared to genital mucosa and theoretically speaking a wart would develop only if it gets a chance to innoculate in epidermis through rubbing or scratching (because it has to innoculate in to the basal layer of epidermis).
Oral warts can form due to oro-genital sex (performing oral sex on an individual with genital warts/ Hpv infection) and are caused by the same Hpv types which cause genital warts i.e 6 and 11.
No, if there are no warts in oral mucosa, Hpv cannot be passed on through oral sex to genitalia (baring, though rarely, if there is a subclinical Hpv infection). You anyways don't have to worry about this route because you had a protected sex!! so there was no direct contact between her oral mucosa and your genitalia.
There i no risk either to you or your wife, due to these 2 incidents
Yes. there is 0% chance that you could have got Hpv through any of these instances and thereby a 100% certainty of not having passed Hpv to your wife as a consequence of these 2 incidents. Twenty months is the maximum time frame or the upper limit between acquiring infection and before one could develop warts.
