HPV: There are so many hpv virus, 16 & 18 are the most common risk type for cervical cancer. Intercourse w your boyfriend will not change to much your risk if you already have hpv. You need yearly pap smear, avoid multiple sex partners, prevent having hiv, don't smoke. Good luck.

Not likely: As dysplasia (precancerous changes) of the cervix, vagina, and vulva is due to exposure to the sexually transmitted hpv virus, any contact can transmit it.

Sometimes: Babies heart rates change all the time. Some changes are good, heart rate rises that are called accelerations. Other changes can be bad like temporary drops (decelerations), low or high heart rates. If there are drops in the heart rate or it is staying too high or too low, you might need to be induced or even have a c/s. A normal fetal heart rate is how we can tell the baby is ok.
