Re: just found out i have hpv
I would tell your b/f about it. Even if they don't have symptoms of HPV doesn't mean that they still can't carry it and transmit it to other girls that he has sex with.
Anyways, HPV-short for Human Papilloma Virus- is an STD. HPV is the virus that causes genital warts and, possibly later on in life, cancer. There are more than 100 varieties of HPV and all of them are different, meaning they have different symptoms and stages. There is a new HPV vaccine out there that is suggested for girls just hitting puberty to take. The vaccine protects against the varieties that are most prevalent, therefore, protecting you from the chances of getting genital warts and cancer. It doesn't protect against all of the HPV varieties, so you can still get HPV even after you've taken the vaccine.
You would have to go see a gyn that has the HPV vaccine(Gardisil) to get info on it. You maybe asking why it would be helpful for you. It would be helpful to protect you from future strains of HPV that you don't have now. People with HPV can still take the vaccine because they may be lucky enough not to have the strain(s) that the vaccine protects against.
Anyways, you'd have to talk with a doctor to get definitive details on it. I have checked into HPV myself because my best friend has it and my mom-being a little over-protective-wanted me to get the HPV vaccine. Unfortunately, it wasn't covered under my insurance(and we couldn't afford the $300 fee for it), so I couldn't get it. I plan to get it, though, before I get sexually active.
Hope this helped!
