How sure are you that you and your husband both carry the exact same strain of the virus? Because as you probably know, the HPV virus is linked to cervical cancer and if you aren’t already infected with the same strain that your husband has then you need to be careful to not get it.

If you’re 100% certain that you got the HPV virus from him (or he got it from you) then you’re probably ok to not use condoms but if there is any chance that you’re dealing with 2 different strains then you should be careful to not get infected with a strain that is potentially worse than the one you already have.

Though to be honest this seems like the kind of question that you should be asking your doctor as it seems like you should get professional advice from a medical specialist.

Good luck.

No you dont. You probably caught the virus from one and other anyway. You need to make sure that you get regular pap smears though. The HPV is connected to cervical cancer.

I suggest that you get a gardisal vaccination (cervical cancer)
