Yes: Of the dozen or more infections that can pass during sex, some can show up soon and be obvious while others can hide for years. Some hpv strains can remain hidden for decades before your pap smear changes and shows possible changes of cancer.If you are sexually active, let your doc know so they can test you for those with the most troublesome effects on your health.
