Dit is een grote lijst – Ik heb ze niet gezien als commentaar, maar ik denk dat we allemaal moeten gaan gebruiken ze nu!
Sexual contact, including oral sex and deep kissing, can transmit HPV from one person to another. The likelihood of contracting oral HPV is directly associated with number of sexual partners a person has had.
Deep kissing this proved not to transmit oral hpv. Long-term partners of patients with carcinoma of the oropharynx + hpv not have more hpv oral infection by the general population. According Gypsyamber D Souza ( Johns Hopkins epidemiologist )””I did one study to suggest it might be transmitted by deep kissing, but the risk was small — so I think it is unlikely that HPV is transmitted by French kissing,” she says. “People with oral HPV infection should not be concerned about interacting with their loved ones in a normal way. Salivary transmission of HPV is very rare.”

I was just seeking this info for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this kind of informative web sites in top of the list. Usually the top websites are full of garbage.
What are the primary signs of having HPV? Does all HPV had cancer?
Another question: I look at the statistics on the wall in my GI doctor’s office about women’s death rate and I ask (not for the first time)why is there no test for the strains that cause anal cancer?
Are you telling us that Dr. Christiane Northrup was wrong when she associated HPV in the male with the scrotum? If she was right, what good are condoms?
When it comes to HPV, male condoms are practically useless. A safer route would be to use the female condom, as it generally covers the whole vagina. But when one is having sex, there is generally no “safe sex”.
