HPV infections are currently the most common sexually transmitted infections. A sexually active person has a greater than 80% chance of becoming infected by one or more types of HPV during his or her lifetime. Infection is more common among younger people because they change sexual partners more frequently.  Epidemiological studies show that the chance of getting infected with a new HPV genotype ranges between 15% and 25% with each new sexual partner.
