HPV & future partners?

Trying to get a handle on this since I was diagnosed. Thought I had herpes, the folks on those boards are great, too, but I was negative for that. If I hadn't gone in for herpes diagnosis, I would not have found out I have HPV & dysplasia. What does HPV mean for future sexual partners? If I have a hysterectomy, is it gone? If not, where does it reside? How does it affect men? Is it always sexually transmitted? Sorry for all the questions, don't know where else to turn. Doc was supposed to call today with my colpo appointment and never did so I will call her tomorrow.
Thanks for any thoughts & responses.

Re: HPV & future partners?

Blonder,

Since HPV is the most common STI in this country (over 100 different types of HPV exist) there's a lot of information on it. Here's a good fact sheet to get you started on understanding it. I'm sure your doctor will give you more information. A hysterectomy does not cure an HPV infection but dysplasia is easily treated. Every female in my family (8 in all) has had dysplasia.

Thanks, cookie. Just starting to understand all this and have been doing a lot of reading, shocked at the stats. I never knew anything about this until now. I guess if I have to be stuck with something, this isn't the worst & I'm in good company. The herpes message boards are just heartbreaking. But, at least herpes doesn't cause cancer.
