My boyfriend's ex was rumoured to have genital warts. I couldn't see any physically on his genital area so could i still get the std?

Love responsibly: This is 2014 and hopefully you use barrier protection except with your one-and-only-for-a-lifetime. Get immunized so as not to pick up anything else. Whoever you're with should already have done the same. And stop worrying. The only hpv lesions that result in death or mutilation are the ones that people neglect.
