Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
Let me address your concerns one by one -
1. Kissing rarely transmits HPV. Most commonly it is transmitted by vaginal or anal sex, and sometimes by oral sex.
2. False positives are less likely . Can you upload the report, so that I can have a look at it ? Also, once the test is repeated after 3 months, you will have more confirmation.
3. You can go for the HPV vaccination if you are under 26 years of age, and have never been sexually active.
All the best
Please feel free to discuss further.

Thanks for your reply .
I am trying to get the report release from the doctors office .
1. I am 30 so would the vaccine help me ?.
2. I read the virus is tranmitted from skin to skin contact . Can the virus spread by touching gentials . If I get infected what are the consquences ?
3. Can the virus get transmitted to the baby if my wife gets pregnant ? Would it have any impact on the baby ?
Yes, please try and get the report.
1. Yes, if you are 30, and have never engaged in sexual activity, the vaccine might benefit you.
2. It can spread by contact with mucosa. Not by skin to skin contact.
As I said earlier, by oral, anal or vaginal sex.
3. Yes, there is a 5 % risk of the virus being passed to the baby, the risk increases if the mother has active lesions at the time of delivery. There is no serious impact on the baby, but it might affect the eyes, throat etc of the newborn.
All the best
