you can’t guarantee it!!! He should be paranoid! I got herpes on my butt and I’m always in flare and the guy I got it from didn’t have anything….but he was a carrier!!!
Now I’m with someone else but I always have breakouts. It’s so unfair!
Your BF should be careful!!! If you pass it to him, he may never forgive you.

ughhh im sick of these dumb people answerin question in hpv. it goes away and for all any1 knows is he gave it to you, and for all anyones knows is he has it too, and he will be exposed to it again beause 80% of women have either had it/has it now/will get it. and 50+% of men and women combined and rarely ever cause symptoms except for women in a pap. us women have the worse part. people are so dumb. no havin it or passin it isnt cool, but it doesnt cause any probs and it kinda hard to avoid so cmon now. it goes away its kinda like the flu except takes the body a lil longer to cure.

Your questions states you have never had an outbreak of warts…was your HPV infection diagnosed when your Pap test found abnormal cervical cell changes and your HPV test was positive? Low grade cell changes are usually diagnosed via a Pap test low risk HPV types are usually diagnosed with a visual of external genital warts.

You can’t guarantee that your boyfriend will never have any complication due to HPV. Men do not share the same health burden as women do..but they can transmit your shared HPV with a new sex partner. Men can acquire oral cancers due to high risk HPV types this type of transmission is thought to be acquired during sex. To learn more about this check the oral cancer foundations website.

HPV can be transmitted with the use of condoms. If you have already engaged in sex with this guy he most probably already shares your HPV type. If this guy has engaged in any sex before you he may also carry an HPV type of his own.

HPV is a common sexually transmitted infection most people do build immunity to their shared HPV type…but in some the virus can progress and persist.

LSIL—Low-grade Squamous Intraepithelial Lesion. Low-grade means there are early changes in the size and shape of the cells. The word lesion refers to an area of abnormal tissue. LSILs are considered mild abnormalities caused by HPV infection and are a common condition, especially among young women. The majority of LSILs return to normal over months to a few years.
HPV infection can occur in both male and female genital areas that are covered or protected by a latex condom, as well as in areas that are not covered. Although the degree of protection provided by condoms in preventing HPV infection is unknown, condom use has been associated with a lower rate of cervical cancer.

Perhaps the more he learns about the virus how common it is…the less paranoid he will be.
