Re: HPV and having children
Do you have high-risk or low-risk HPV? (Low risk causes warts; high risk would have shown up on an abnormal pap and is the kind that can potentially cause cancer.)
The virus itself doesn't affect your fertility, though some treatments for moderate to severe dysplasis like the LEEP MIGHT put you at somewhat of a higher risk for going into early labor.
The only other real risk I've heard was that if you were to go a very long time without detecting dysplasia and it DID develop into cancer, you could need a hysterectomy, which obviously would affect fertility. This, however, is rare if you're going for your annual paps and especially if you're under 30.
As far as passing it during birth, I don't believe it's too much of a risk unless you were having an outbreak of warts or something like that.
It's estimated up to 80% of women will get it at some point, so there are definitely LOTS of women with HPV having babies.
