In a breakthrough revelation, it has been revealed that virgin girls are also at risk of contracting human papillomavirus (HPV). A recent study has unveiled the same by conducting an experiment on women and teen girls.
Study researcher Lea Widdice, from Cincinnati Children's Hospital, was of the view that out of the volunteers they enrolled for the study, 11.6% of them were the ones who have never had sex in their lives. Even they were infected with at least one strain of HPV, said Lea.
There are many ways by which such infections can pass on. Some of the ways were genital-to-genital, and infected hands to genitals. It shall however, be noted that the infection could be for a momentary time period, but it can turn form of cervical cancer.
The study has given yet another reason for providing vaccine to girls, who age between 11 and 12. Lea recommended that parents as well as doctors should not make any kind of delays when it comes to providing vaccine to little girls, as they are quite vulnerable to infection.
"Even before kids have intercourse, they're being exposed to HPV", said Lea, at the time when he cleared the air that providing vaccine at the age of 11 is too early.
