There’s an approved test for women however so men who are having sex with a woman who is diagnosed with HPV can assume there is a good chance they also have the virus. Even if you are vaccinated for HPV and use condoms during sex there’s still a chance that you could become infected with a type of HPV that the vaccine does not protect against.

https://hpvhub.com HPV Symptoms in Men There are no HPV male symptoms with the majority of infections. In fact the body’s immune system usually suppresses the virus on its own. In these cases men usually don’t realize they have HPV or had it previously because there were no noticeable changes to their body or overall health. How Does HPV Affect Men Warts are the only clear sign of HPV in men. Some types of HPV can lead to the development of genital anal or oral warts. These warts are small bumps that appear individually or in groupings. Depending on what HPV type you have the warts may be flat or raised. Usually the warts go away on their own. If they don’t you can see a dermatologist to pursue medical or surgical treatments.
