Lori Grant, one of our clinicians, dispels some myths and shares some key information to know about Monkeypox. Is Monkeypox sexually transmitted?While Monkeypox can be spread by sexual contact, it isnota classical sexually transmitted disease. Sex does require close contact (for many people) and therefore it is the close contact that is the issue.
TLDR: HPV is a very common infection that typically clears on its own. It can lead to cancer and/or genital warts. The only/best test we have for this is the cervical cancer screening test. We have really great vaccines that can help protect you against HPV and prevent your risk of developing an HPV-related cancer.
