No, HPV (human papillomavirus) is not free. HPV is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) that can be transmitted through sexual contact with an infected person. There are more than 100 different strains of HPV, and some strains can cause genital warts or various types of cancers, including cervical, anal, vaginal, and oral cancers.
However, there are ways to reduce the risk of getting HPV or transmitting it to others, such as practicing safe sex by using condoms and getting vaccinated against HPV. It is important to speak with a healthcare provider about the best way to protect oneself from HPV and other STIs.
