How do you get HPV?

You get HPV by engaging in sexual acts. It can be transmitted through hands, mouth, skin, through the penis and vagina and through oral sex. You can also get HPV if you have had the same partner all your life, always use condoms, or have a female sexual partner. The virus is highly contagious; almost everyone gets it at some point.
