Many HPV singles think that dating with HPV is something that is impossible. Living with HPV doesn’t have to be like that though. A number of HPV dating sites have popped up around the internet to help with that. Further, going on real dates and having sex isn’t impossible. You just need to be safe, let’s take a look at some safety tips for HPV singles dating.
Be Comfortable With Your Status
You don’t have to be happy with having HPV but that doesn’t mean you can’t be comfortable with it. Learning to accept that you have HPV is a big step in life. One that can change your whole dating life.
By being comfortable with living with HPV it is a lot easier to talk about and talking about your status is important. HPV is one of the most commonly transmitted STIs. Being aware, comfortable, and safe is one of the best ways to prevent it from spreading.
Educate Yourself About HPV
In order to be comfortable and confident when you have HPV it is important that you learn about the virus. The more that you know about what it is and how it spreads, the easier it is to prevent the spread. Additionally, it helps to keep your partner(s) protected from getting the disease.
Make sure that you learn about HPV from a reliable source such as the Center for Disease Control webpage. This will help to ensure that you get accurate information as there is plenty of false information that has been spread around the internet.
There are two important facts to know. One, there is a vaccine that can help prevent the spread of the virus. Ask your partners to get the vaccine in order to prevent it spreading. Second, it can be spread through almost all sexual activity such as vaginal, anal, and oral sexual activity.
Talk To Your Partners
Because you have HPV it is important that you talk with your partners before you get sexual. Tell them about your status and let them know that you can prevent transmission by using proper protection. Talking about sex and your status can be intimidating and for that reason many HPV singles wait until a few dates have gone by before talking about it.
But it is important that you do talk about it. It is possible to get in legal trouble if you don’t disclose your status.
Using protection whenever you have sex is always important. When you are dating with HPV it is even more important to use protection. HPV can be spread via anal, vaginal, and oral sex, take that into account when deciding whether or not to use protection.
We recommend keeping protection with you whenever you are going on a date. Even if you are a female. You never know when it will be needed.
Have Your Partner Get Vaccinated
If you have a partner that you are thinking about getting sexual with, ask them to get vaccinated. By getting the vaccination, the chances of them getting the virus is reduced. It is important that you still take other safety measures such as wearing protection. HPV in your partner could cause illness, warts, and cancer. Even in men.
Date Others Living With HPV
It is always better to date others living with HPV when you have HPV yourself. This can help to ensure that you are safer and there is less chance of it spreading. If you are looking for other HPV singles, try turning to HPV dating sites, these will help you to find the perfect match for your needs.
Even when dating others with HPV, it is important to use protection. Protection helps to prevent not just the spread of HPV but the spread of other viruses and infections. Just because someone has HPV doesn’t mean they don’t have other STIs/STDs.
At first HPV dating may seem overwhelming. It certainly can be. But the sooner your start thinking about it and realizing that it is still possible to have a normal dating life while living with HPV, the easier it will get. HPV is not a death sentence but it can have serious side affects in some people so preventing the spread is important.
