Welcome to HPV Pictures!
HPV is one of the most common STIs among young, sexually active people under 22. At any one time, and estimated 20 million people in the United States have genital HPV infections that can be transmitted to others. Every yea, about 6 million people acquire a genital HPV infection. A recent U.S. Study among female college students found that an average of 14 percent became infected with genital HPV each year. About 43 percent of the women in the study were infected with HPV during the three-year study period. Typical prevalence of HPV for women under the age of 25 is between 28 and 46 percent of all women.
Most estimates suggest that one out of every three sexually active young adults may carry HPV, yet far fewer have visible, active warts they could recognize or self-diagnose (as little as only 1-2%), though they are infected and CAN and likely will still transmit HPV. Some strains of HPV may cause cervical cancer and make a person with the infection more susceptible to other infectious diseases, like HIV. It is not yet curable. Some people may shed or suppress the virus, but there is no accurate way of knowing who has and who has not at this time.
