We aren't sure...: We don't fully know the answer to that, but it might be very quickly and it may be as long as years. That is why women need ongoing paps and not just one every so often. Risky behavior today could show up as cancer in a decade! ...Read more

If you have HPV,: the infant can acquire it during delivery. "Congenital HPV" can make a newborn very sick. I don't know how old your baby is, but the symptoms can begin up to 30 days after delivery. Women with obvious lesions are more likely to transmit HSV to the baby, so your baby's risk is lower. It's also lower if you got your first outbreak before pregnancy.

If a woman has an abnormal pap from HPV then why does the man not get treated?

It's not treatable: Excellent question, and subtle. The man's hpv usually doesn't produce a lesion that can be excised, and the hpv itself cannot be removed from either partner -- just the precancer / cancer. Once you have met a particular strain of hpv, it's there for life. This is in contrast to chlamydia and trichomonas, in which it's good to treat both partners in a current relationship at the same time. ...Read more
