HPV is spread mainly through sex, women who start having sex at a young age, who have multiple sexual
partners, and whose partners have had many other partners are more likely to have HPV.
Early sexual activity is one such factor. The risk of HPV is increased because the cervix's lining cells do not
fully mature until an individual reaches the age of 18.
The risk of HPV is also increased by other STDs, generally known as sexuallyHIV/AIDS transmitted illnesses, or STIs, such as
gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, or HIV/AIDS.
