My Partner Has HPV, what should I do?
Hi, I'm a little younger than most people on here as I'm only 18. But I feel like I should ask someone for advice and I really can't spread around the fact that my girlfriend has HPV just to find some answers for myself. That hardly seems fair.
My girlfriend is 24. When she was seventeen she was raped and contracted HPV. It's not one of the cancer causing strains but I'm still scared for her.
We've fooled around but have not had sex due to the fact. I'm really happy with her and, despite the fact that I'm so young I hope it last for a while. I'm not so naive as to assume that this relationship with last forever despite the way I feel now.
Do I live in the moment with her? Or do I play it safe and end up loosing that intimacy with her?
I'm at a loss here. The fact that she has HPV doesn't change the way i feel about her. But I do feel like maybe this situation is a bit beyond my maturity level. Perhaps one of you could help me out.
