Can my boyfriend catch HPV by touching me?

by Rachel on May 28, 2011

I have HPV. He doesn’t. Sexually, what can we do that will keep him protected. Is it risky letting him finger me? If he keeps his boxers on and use the pee-hole and condom, does it lower risk? Please, I’m totally clueless. Doctors dont explain this stuff to you.

Using a condom always reduces the risk, but the chances are still there. I can understand your idea of using the pee-hole to cover up any exposed area of skin, that is not covered by the condom, but I doubt that would make a difference since it can shift and expose skin. He can finger you. It is just important to go and wash up as soon are you two are done. When anyone has a viral infection…it is always a hard call. I have a virus and my boyfriend does not have it. We do all the intimate things and he knows his risk, but it does not stop me from worrying about him getting it. In fact I worry about it more than he does. The two of you will just have to make a decision. If the two of you see a long term relationship…then sex will not be a big deal. If you two don’t see a future…then why put him at risk.

using condoms properly can reduce the risk of him getting hpv…yes fingering or any skin to skin contact can give him hpv

The best answer I can give you is to make sure you don’t have any visible symptoms and use a condom. Unfortunately, HPV is spread the genital (skin to skin) contact. If you are being treated for this, great. If not, GET TREATED.
