      Hey! So, vast majority of HPV strains will actually show no symptoms at all. In fact, vast majority of people who have it only knew because they went in for their routine PAP. If it's a more concerning strain, some people MIGHT get warts on or surrounding their genitalia. HPV is actually very common, with more than 70% of the sexually active population having gotten it at least once in their lifetime (and that number could be higher, as this is only based on it being detected as people got tested), and even then, transition is not only done by having sex. I know it's super scary when you first hear it, but if you happen to test positive, you most likely don't have anything to worry about, and the only thing you can really do is continue living as healthily as you are able and getting your routine paps done till it goes away or mutates. And even then, if they find anything too concerning, they will probably do a Colposcopy (similar to pap but they use a colposcope to look closer to your cervix, may use a solution to make some cells more obvious and may do a biopsy.) And will go from there. The biggest thing I will stress is that you don't have much of anything to worry about. ❤️🤟🏻
