How is HPV infection contracted?

Hello. I am inquiring about the HPV virus. I am a female 52 years of age and have the HPV virus high risk. My husband just was diagnosed with genital warts and anal skin tags. Did I give this to him? We have been together five years and never had a problem before.

Hello,

HPV virus can be transmitted through sexual intercourse. There is a possibility that you have transmitted the virus to your husband.

Hope my answer was helpful. If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.
