The basics: Any abnormal cells from HPV arise months/years/decades after the 1st infection. The germ is likely dormant, but you are likely already infected if together for a long time. Males rarely have any symptoms or complications from penile exposure but oral cancer may be related. I would not change your life for this. Discuss it with your own doc if other questions remain.
