Re: hpv corelation
The only link I'm aware of is that from what I've read HIV patients are more susceptible to having HPV (particularly the type that causes genital warts). I still remember when I first learned of my HPV and telling a past lover about it, how he immediately assumed I had HIV. Then I was reading about the correlation between the two and started getting sick with worry (which I so didn't need). My primary care physician had me take a HIV test prior to my surgery to remove the warts and that was the longest three days of my life waiting for the results. In fact I actually had to call for them when normally they let me know results within 2 days.
