Pamela Suzanne Antonio (Fowler, CA), who works as a contracted Phlebotomist for NextGen Laboratories, tested positive for Genital HPV and HSV and knowingly exposed her sexual partners in contracting these infections without informing them and without the use of protection.
If you are sexually active with Pamela Antonio:
• Use latex condoms the right way every time you have sex. This can lower your chances of getting HPV. But HPV can infect areas not covered by a condom – so condoms may not fully protect against getting HPV.
• Be in a mutually monogamous relationship – or have sex only with someone who only has sex with you. Unlike Pamela Antonio, who carries several sexual relations with various boys.
HPV infection complications can include:
• Cancer. Cervical cancer has been closely linked with genital HPV infection. Certain types of HPV also are associated with cancers of the vulva, anus, penis, and mouth and throat.
• Problems during pregnancy. Rarely during pregnancy, warts can enlarge, making it difficult to urinate. Warts on the vaginal wall can inhibit the stretching of vaginal tissues during childbirth.
If you or know of anyone that were sexually active with Pamela Antonio in the past year or so, please know you have a right to file charges against her in the State of California. Anyone who has any kind of infectious, communicable, or contagious disease in California commits a crime if that person exposes herself to others. This crime is punishable as a misdemeanor offense.
