| | HPV and Condoms
I have been dating my boyfriend for several months and we are exclusive, committed, and happy. Before our relationship turned sexual, I disclosed that I had HPV. About 2.5 years before I met him, I had a few warts and abnormal paps (2 colposcopies). Warts were treated and have not returned, and paps are back to normal. However, due to this we decided to use condoms. I know for men sex isn't as pleasurable with condoms, and I love him and want him to enjoy sex as much as possible. Plus, not having that "barrier" between us or the interruption when putting one on obviously makes the experience much more romantic. When will it be ok to stop using them? Will he always be at risk with me? Is there anything I can say/do to make him more comfortable with forgoing the rubber?
I am on birth control pills so the condoms aren't for pregnancy prevention at all.
