What are the odds of me catching HPV since i'm bottom guy here, always used protection , and have been tested for std's everything came back negative.?

That being said, hpv doesn't always cause symptoms; it depends on your own immune system's response to it, as well as the strain of hpv you are exposed to. ...Read more

Extremly unlikely: HPV is rarely if ever transmitted mouth to genitals. It can be acquired in the mouth by oral sex, but rarely goes in the other direction.
