If your partner was diagnosed with HPV, my understanding is that it is fairly certain that you also have HPV. Do I now remain a carrier for life?

If your partner was diagnosed with HPV, my understanding is that it is fairly certain that you also have HPV. Do I now remain a carrier for life?

Probably not: HPV DNA often persists in tissues, but the actual frequency isn't known. However, the immune system suppressive active viral infection within a year or two, and most people never have another problem, even if DNA persists. For practical purposes, the infection is cured. Most people with HPV are not "carriers for life". You'll probably never have a problem and won't infect future partners. ...Read more

Is it possible not to get reinfections after 8 months of unprotected sex with a female with chlamydia? thought it was easy to infection others

Is it possible not to get reinfections after 8 months of unprotected sex with a female with chlamydia? thought it was easy to infection others

Yes, it's possible: The immune system clears chlamydia over time and helps prevent new infections, so he might have been infected previously, it's now cleared up, and he now has a negative test despite repeated sex with infected partner. Or he took an antibiotic (maybe for another reason) that cleared it. Or someone's lab test could be mistaken. Both partners need treatment, including the one with the negative test. ...Read more
