Makes no difference: Maybe I can help while you wait for Dr.Khan. If the two of you have been having sex for some time, he has already been exposed repeatedly to your genital HPV and you can assume he has it. Maybe he was the source of your infection. You probably don't have it orally, but if you do, oral sex will not change his risk. You can continue your usual sexual practices: no need to change now. It's too late!
