Should I Assume Infidelity?
I married my high school sweetheart 22 years ago, after dating for 6 years. He has been my only sexual partner. Four years ago, just before turning 40, I had a bad pap, followed by a colposcopy. I had severe dysplasia and ultimately LEEP procedure. My margins came back clean. I had paps every 4 months for 2 years and all was fine. Just this past week (four years later) I had another bad pap, showing mild dysplasia and I had my colposcopy yesterday. I am awaiting results. Of course, I have been researching the condition and I am haunted by the question---I understand that HPV is sexually transmitted and is the underlying cause for the readings I have had. So, has my husband been unfaithful? Did my original LEEP effectively remove the virus the first time and am I to assume that he has been unfaithful in the past four year period?? Like any 20 year marriage, we have had our challenges---but, this is not an area that I ever thought I had a problem....please offer your advise.
