Human papillomavirus (HPV) is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs). 

It is a virus that can be spread through skin-to-skin genital contact. 

There are many different types of HPV. Some types cause genital warts and are called low-risk. And some types can lead to cervical, anal, or oral cancer and are called high-risk. 

There is no known cure for HPV, but there is a vaccine that can protect against some types of the virus. Stephanie Joy, MD, is here to explain HPV and the importance of the vaccine Gardasil for your teens.
