Yes it is possible: You should get checked by a doctor. If you used a condom there is a much less chance you will pick up the hpv virus. Also the hpv vaccine only covers 4 of the most common srtains of hpv (over 140 strains of hpv).

HPV: I think you may be surprised by the statistics and also what we do not know yet about hpv. 96% of americans are exposed to one of the strains of hpv by the age of 26. It is likely you have been exposed long before this recent exposure to your boyfriend. This is the reason you get pap smears. I would hope you have been and will continue to get them. But, please get the hpv vaccine anyway!
