Re: Hpv / Unfaithfl Husband
I am sorry about your situation. You should have had him tested after the first affair and any after. More importantly, you should kick his butt to the curb ASAP! No more excuses, I don't care who you are or what you look like, that is total crap. You deserve better and believe me, it is out there. You are right to take action about the STD"s, more important, if you continue to have sex with your husband, you must wear condoms since you do not know what he is bringing home. Until he has all of his tests and they come back negative, I would steer clear of him. To answer your question, YES he can have the HPV virus and not have any warts. Only 30% of people that have the virus ever show warts. That is why so many people have it and do not know, they do not show symptoms. That is why this woman he has slept with probably has the virus too. You can also carry the virus for many years and not have any warts as well so you may have been infected years ago after the first affair and had no idea. There is no test for HPV(warts) in men. So getting your husband tested is no good. They must diagnose him by looking at the warts so if he has none, there is nothing that you can do. It is safe to say that he does have the virus BUT you should have him tested for everything else. Herpes, HIV and clamydia are all things that he needs to be tested for now. If you do decide to stay with him, I would forgo any sexual contact with him until you SEE the results for yourself. Think about your own sexual health. Luckily, you care enough about your own health and you are doing what you have to do to protect yourself. I wish that your own husband cared enough to do the same not only to protect himself but also the woman that is supposed to be the most important thing in his life. Do the right thing for yourself.
