Genital human papillomavirus (/pap pil LO ma VY rus/) (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted virus in the United States. At least 50% of sexually active people will have genital HPV at some time in their lives.

Most people who have genital HPV don’t know they have it. There are often no symptoms, and it goes away on its own—without causing any serious health problems.

HPV is passed on through genital contact (such as vaginal and anal sex). You can pass HPV to others without knowing it.

There is no cure for HPV, but there are treatments for the health problems that some types of HPV can cause, like genital warts and cervical cancer
