HPV is passed on through genital (skin to skin) contact, most often during sexual intercourse. Gardasil is the only HPV vaccine that helps protect against 4 types of HPV. In girls and women from ages 9 to 26, Gardasil helps protect against 2 types of HPV that cause about 75% of cervical cancer cases, and 2 more types that cause 90% of genital warts cases. A pap smear is a type of STD testing that screens specifically for cervical cancer (HPV).
The results for bacterial STDs like Chlamydia and Gonorrhea will show up in approximately 3 days from exposure. For type specific STDs like HIV, Herpes, Hepatitis and Syphilis it will take approximately 2 weeks for results to show up from exposure.
