Is HPV the same as herpes?


According to WebMD and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), human papillomavirus and herpes are distinct from one another. WebMD notes that over 100 related viruses exist within the HPV group. Two types of viruses cause genital herpes: herpes simplex type 1 and type 2.

According to WebMD, statistics from the CDC indicate that 45 percent of women 14 to 19 are infected with an HPV virus, as of 2014. Health risks vary, with some high-risk strains causing cervical cancer and lower-risk strains causing genital warts. Genital herpes is common in the United States, though not as common as HPV. CDC data shows that around one in six people between 14 and 49 have genital herpes, as of 2014.
