unlike hiv, hpv is really easy to get. it is estimated that up to 80-90% of sexually active adults have it or have had it. my doctor told me that hpv is "as common as brushing your teeth"; strange analogy, i know. it never really goes away and outbreaks can recur, but its more of a nuisance than anything. there are sometimes no symptoms, and there are sometimes warts, which are small and don't hurt. because it often occurs in areas condoms don't cover, its easily passed from one person to another. its not deadly, but women who have been diagnosed with it need to make sure they get their annual pap smear (oh wait, that's all of us....)
