    everyone should get an HPV Vaccine and always practice safe sex to avoid genital warts.

    the best defense against HPV is still abstinence and knowing your partner very well. There is already an HPV Vaccine so i guess it would help a lot in controlling this disease.

    knowing your partner very well is not the best defense against HPV! eighty percent of the population has it and doesn’t even know it!you could have it right now and not know anything about it.i knew my partner well,but now i may have cervical cancer caused by HPV.girls and boys alike should be getting this vaccine to help prevent genital warts and cervical cancer for future generations!
