If I Was Tested Negative For Std’s Is It Possible For My Girlfriend To Have Contracted Hpv From Me?

by Rachel on February 1, 2010

Just wondering if a normal std test will test for HPV. My girlfriend just received a letter saying she needs to come back to the obgyn for and tests maybe for HPV or mild dysplasia. But I have had several std tests all negative. Just wondering if i may have given her HPV without knowing I had it.

Forget what everyone else said.
Did you happened to know that there is no test for HPV for men. So, you may be the carrier, and since their is tests for women, she could of possibly contracted it from you. So many women have it because of men who don’t know they have it and pass on the virus that ultimately could lead to cervical cancer in a woman that can kill her all because of a man.
So, don’t assume she is cheating or having affair, because you could of had it all along and not know it because their is NO TEST FOR GENITAL WARTS/HPV for men. They only can make diagnosis thru visible symptoms for men!
Do understand that and don’t be a jerk and blame her because you could of been a possible carrier and not know it.

HPV is not included in any STI testing. High risk HPV testing is done after a Pap smear has found abnormal cell changes on the cervix. HPV testing is only approved done on the cervix. The HPV test only screens for high risk HPV types.
There is no FDA approved HPV test for the male.
You may have shared your HPV infection with your girl friend but she may have acquired her HPV infection from any past sex partner…regardless of who gave whom the infection you both share your HPV type now.
Both men and women can carry the virus with no signs or symptoms. Men most often carry a high risk HPV type with no signs.
It is a good idea to ask your doctor or your health care provider which STI you were screening for…but since there is no available HPV test for the male there was no HPV test done.

Yes you could have given it to her but if she got the shots for it then its slim that she did.

It can be hard to test for HPV if you aren’t having an outbreak at the time, so it’s possible.
