hpv vs. toothbrush

Jun 12, 2008

my room-mate by accident mistaken my toothbrush from her's and used it to clean her vibrator. she was once diagnoise with hpv. she had a check up two months ago and the results came back normal. Can i get hpv from the toothbrush? oh, and i have had recieved the hpv vaccine in this year before this happened.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Your roomie uses her toothbrush to clean her vibrator??? Hmm . . . unusual choice.

As for your specific questions, you can relax. Not only would HPV not be transmissible via the vibrator-toothbrush route, but you are already immune to the dangerous strains of HPV from having been vaccinated.

I forgive you Doc :)
