hpv is just hpv. You cant fight it specifically, just remain well nourished, eat a healthy diet and it will run its course.

HPV is a mere classification for a whole bunch of viruses which have COMPLETELY DIFFERENT symptoms and do completely different damage. You could have warts, you could end up with it causing cancer, there is no way of knowing until the symptoms show up. Yes, you will have it for the rest of your life, but you also have chicken pox for the rest of your life, herpes, etc. Most viruses do remain in the body for the rest of your life at a level which is below the viral load threshold to cause any impact whatsoever, but it can flare up if you ever become immunocomprimised or may have already done the damage before you get to that phase. There is very little you can do, but you can speak to your doctor about which strain it may be and how you can avoid passing it to your girlfriend until it goes dormant. Even then, she probably already has it.

Many HPV’s can take nearly 2 years to show up, so unless you have had sex with only your ex boyfriend over the past 2 years, then you cant blame him. Even then, your current girlfriend may have given it to you.

4 in 5 women have some strain of the HPV virus “category”. There is currently no way to detect the virus in men, unless they show physical manifestations (warts). Warts only occur in a limited number of strains, and most people don’t show symptoms ever. Particularly men, and it is assumed that they carry the virus at least as often as women.

There are shots for HPV, but they merely prevent physical manifestations, or some strains of infection.

Get a PAP every six months from now on, instead of yearly. A small number of strains have been known to cause irregular cells in the cervix, which most people misinterpret as cancer. These cells are removed through a simple outpatient process, and generally, women do not see any other ill effects. The vast, vast majority of cases are unknown for life.

It’s nothing to really worry about, for the most part, unless you have a strain that causes serious physical manifestations such as warts, severe cellular irregularity and other such growths, which again, are extremely rare.

Just see your Gyno, follow their advice, don’t jump to conclusions because of all the misinformation out there about HPV. The vast majority of the human populace has the virus, and the only REAL STD is if you have warts or tumors arise from the virus itself. Otherwise, you basically don’t have an STD. (Condom use wouldn’t have prevented this particular “STD”, it’s spread by pelvic, oral, and manual contact to the genitals as well.)

Also, in most cases, good hygiene and habits will prevent you from ever seeing a wart, even if you have a “warty” variety of these viruses.

Also, the first comment is incorrect. This particular strain of viruses is not spread by blood contact. The virus affects skin cells.
