Sexual Intercourse is different from Sexual Contact!

One is penetrative, the other is not, let’s call it ‘Merry-go-rounding’🤦🏽‍♀️

Just a reminder that you can get HPV infection from Sexual contact as much as from Intercourse.

This means a Virgin can contact HPV!
HPV- Human Papilloma Virus is a viral STI with many strains. Low risk ( Causing Genital warts) and High risk (Causing Cancers: Cervical, Penile, Anal, Oral).

All it takes is for an uninfected person to come in close body contact with infected area. Do condoms offer protection?👇🏽
Use condoms. They are protective, from STIs. And also prevent unwanted pregnancy.
However, when it comes to HPV, condoms don’t offer complete protection. This is Cos, they can only cover a limited area of the genitalia. And contact with any infected area can lead to infection.
