In brief: Papsmear,vaccination

If you are eligible- you will need to get hpv vaccination.
To prevent it is by following up with your gynecologist closely. She or he will do serial papsmear and hpv testing. Also if needed to do a colposcopic examination and will do whatever necessary as indicated-for instance- surgical procedure for high grade dysplasia so it will not further develop into invasive cancer etc. Discuss with md.

In brief: Regular PAP and HPV

Most people are able to eliminate the hpv virus.
If your partner has hpv, it does not mean that you are destined to get persistent hpv, let alone cervical cancer. Do get paps done regularly and have hpv test done at about age 30.
