"My ex- boyfriend gave me an STI" - Billy Joel's Daughter
Their sexual history.
In a new interview with Alexa Ray Joel 25, tells the world that she contracted human papillomavirus (HPV) from a previous relationship. Joel explained " I had it, but I mean a lot of people get it from my ex. I mean it was fine you know. There are no side effects, you just go and get it taken care of"
You know what? I find her incredibly courageous her for speaking out about her health and shattering this near perfect image that the world has of celebrities. It's important that we as a society know the facts and stop looking at this issues is hushed voices or in a vacuum. I disagree about the no side-effects part of statement, this STI can often have devastating results.
Did you know that HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection. It is common most sexually active people. At least 70% of sexually active people will get HPV at some time in their lives. The virus, which has nearly 200 known types, causes no symptoms in most people some types can cause warts while others can lead to cancer in the genital areas
