Getting infected with HPV is more common than you might think1. Even if you’ve only engaged in sexual activity once, or with the same partner over a long period, there is still a chance you could have the virus as cervical cancer, a cancer caused by HPV, can develop between 5 and up to 20 years later10,17. In most cases, HPV can clear on its own and does not cause any health problems2. But when HPV does not go away, it can cause health problems like genital warts and HPV-related cancers2.
