If you have intercourse with an infected individual is infection inevitable?

Your immune system may not allow the virus to cause extensive infection. In many people, the initial infection caused by HPV is spontaneously suppressed by their defense system and they are not even aware that they were infected, because they never had any visible lesions or symptoms.

If you have intercourse with an individual with visible genital warts, the possibility that you will get warts within the next six months is 60-70%.
