• Always wear a condom from start to finish of a sexual act and even for oral sex.
  • If you have had genital warts, do not have skin to skin contact with your partner until they are cleared and even after that, wear a condom.
  • Do not use the HPV diagnosis to measure the fidelity of your partner. Most likely, everybody who is sexually active, even monogamous for a long time, will have HPV at some point in their lives without knowing it.
