In brief: Those with

Cervix cancer likely have had (or have) hpv.
There is some chance you will acquire hpv, and that has implications, but there is no chance of acquiring cervical cancer by sexual contact, that is cancer from her to you.

In brief: Maybe

Since cervical cancer is caused by a virus, you could be at risk for acquiring the virus, which could put you at risk for several kinds of cancer. To be safe, use condoms until she is fully treated.
