OK class. Pay close attention. There will be a test.
HPV is a virus. You know what viruses are, don't you? It is a systemic infection. There are over 100 kinds of HPV and, if memory serves, about a dozen cause cancer. One could be a Mormon, wear holy garments, never have sex in anything but the missionary position (and then only after reflection and meditation) and acquire HPV. Once acquired only by the most semi-chaste of sexual behaviors (and only to facilitate having children with your husband) the woman is predisposed to not only cervical, but throat, anal and, and IIR a couple of other cancers.
So. Stigmatize? Well let's see. Count the number of posters on this thread. If we are all sexually active (and this does not count learning to use your mouse with your left hand) and male then 1/2 of us already have HPV or will have in our lifetime. By age 50 - 80% of women have/had it. That would be a heck of a stigma. If I had that stigmatized block voting for me I would be the next President.
