HPV: Why you are so sure that she got it from somebody else. She could have gotten the hpv from you as well. The hpv can be contracted via different routes- sure, it could be via sexual intimacy/intercourse, but also can be contracted through passionate kissings/exchanging body fluids/saliva, . Majority of hpv infection will resolve if you have a good immune system.
