Bf of three years has HPV warts and i don't. Does that mean he cheated?

Not necessarily... : Hpv infections can be undetectable for long periods of time (years) and can then be identified. It is possible that your boy friend was infected prior to becoming involved with you, and if that is the case, then he didn't "cheat". It would be good to discuss this with your doc and with your boyfriend or even with both at the same time. Hope that this helps... ...Read more

Timing: Acquisition of genital or vocal warts from delivery are time limited. Transfer of the virus may be silent & would be more likely to occur if there were active genital warts at delivery. If they appear within 2 years of birth the delivery is considered the more likely source. Any emergence after 2-3 years of age will trigger a child sexual abuse investigation in my state. ...Read more

Could i get HPV warts from my boyfriend who carried it 11 years ago?He hasn't had any symptoms at all or still? I have pain in organs in a.M

Possible but...: A hx of no recurrent wart after treatment is favorable but not a guaranty of not still being a hpv carrier because many hpv-infected men, like women, have no visible lesion. But at least, we can say he may have strong enough immune ability against hpv even maybe still a carrier. In fact, some 10-15% of the us adult population are positive hpv dna test, yet just some 1% have visible lesion. ...Read more

Was told I had low risk hpv no warts was told see her back in to 6mo could I really have it even if my partner was tested for it an doesn't have it ?

All is well: Most HPV infections cause no disease. Your positive HPV test doesn't necessarily mean you had a wart causing type of the virus. Only 2 types cause almost all warts; there are over 50 other low risk types. CDC and other health experts recommend that your partner doesn't even need to see a doctor (and didn't need HPV testing) unless he sees actual warts. Talk to doctor about getting HPV vaccine! ...Read more
