The HPV infection can occur wherever there is epithelial tissue: skin, mucosal, uterine, vaginal, anal, urethral, mouth, etc.

HPV is not symptomatic for all it’s carries, becoming “visible” when infected cells begin to devide uncontrollably, creating the appearance of warts in those specific areas.
What it is important to keep in mind is that regardless of whether the HPV lesion has been removed, it is not unique, so this infection is not going to heal forever.

Therefore, if you have HPV and you are pregnant, the risk of transmission this infection to the baby is high.
