Human Papillomavirus; Sexual Assault by knowingly having an STD


Being in college, there is an extreme amount of sexually transmitted infections. Human papillomavirus (HPV) I feel like is common among women in college. I even know some people who feel like it’s not that big of a deal and don’t realize the seriousness of this problem. There over 100 classified types such as benign tumors of squamous cells on the skin and warts. Some types of HPV that involve warts can progress to malignancy, particularly squamous cell carcinoma of the cervix. It shocks me that people don’t take this seriously. Many students around me that are males don’t care about HPV because they say they don’t show symptoms. This is just ridiculous because spreading this, especially without telling their partner, can be life changing. I have taken the three shots there are available now and I would also like to learn more about how they work.
