HPV is transmitted through sexual contact (whether that be oral, anal, or vaginal). Men are usually carriers for HPV and generally exhibit no signs of it whenever they receive it from a partner. You and he may have lost your virginity together, but in this case oral sex does transmit HPV, so if you or he have had oral contact with another person then you could have gotten it. HPV can THEORETICALLY be transferred through kissing, but there is a lack of medical evidence to suggest that it can or ever has. Most doctors agree that it can only be transferred through oral sex.

Hi Casey,
HPV transmission typically occurs through direct skin-to-skin contact. In most cases it occurs during sexual activity, but it does not have to be penetrative sex. So it is possible to get it as a virgin. You can find more information in the source below.
There is no known cure for HPV, the infections is often cleared on its own. If not, there are treatments for the symptoms.
Certain types of HPV are a risk factor to develop cervical cancer. If this is the case you want to be on a regular medical watch for this. You should discuss this with your doctor.
On the Rutgers Student Health Web site, they advise: “If both partners are otherwise healthy individuals with normal immune systems, and both partners remain monogamous, they should eventually become free of HPV disease because of the formation of antibodies against the HPV by their own immune systems.” In other words, both of you could expose each other to the types of HPV you each are carrying, but over time you will both fight off the virus and reach a stable situation in your own bodies.
Using a condom may nevertheless be a reasonable precaution.
It’s estimated that 75 percent of reproductive-age women and men have been infected with genital HPV at some point in their lives — so you’re not alone!
I’m not a doctor, and this is only some info I collected from various sources. You should consult your doctor, and use the above to ask questions.

YES. If he was your first you wouldn’t have gotten HPV. Maybe he did something and is afraid to tell you. That is one wYES. If he was your first you wouldn’t have gotten HPV. Maybe he did something and is afraid to tell you. That is one way to find out if he has cheated on you. You, unfortunately, caught somethingay to find out if he has cheated on you. You, unfortunately, caught something.
It is a type of infection that can cause warts, cancerous warts and other problems. There is currently no cure or treatment for HPV so dont sleep with him again. You both, together have to go get checked. If he starts acting funny and not wanting to go, he gave it to you. I would go to the doctor and get fully checked to see whats going on. There are different stages of HPV.
