My husband has hpv and my pap smear says low grade..if we continue to have sex unprotected will it make it worse or could we die?

No one will die: HPV typically is mostly a nuisance and VERY rarely life threatening. If you both already have HPV then having further relations will not change that so don't worry. Just make sure you keep to your pap smear schedule as recommended by your doctor.
