Dear Friend,

I was in the exact situation as your boyfriend about 10 years ago and I took the plung, married my husband and to this date I don't have the virus. I can understand his trepidation, but if you are real careful he won't contract least I didn't and its been ten years. Good luck.

Re: hpv and dating

milly, how old is your boyfriend and how sexually active was he before you. There's a big chance that he has it already and doesn't even know it. It infects something like 7 in 10 adults! Most people haven't the slightest idea that they have hpv unless they actually have a wort symptom. My doctor told me I had it because I had a CINIII pap test and said that hpv is the cause of cervical cancer. I have never been tested and I'm not in the least bit worried about it..I was married for years and neither of us had a symptom. I can only assume my doctor knows what he's talking about and I do have it since I had that precancerous pap test result. I was kind of taken aback by it when he told me but almost every other woman I talked to has had a LEEP done or at least has a friend or sister or mother that's just so common!
I tells it likes a sees it

Re: hpv and dating

I have the hpv and none of the bf's i have after I was diagnosed had cared about me having the virus. I don't have the wart type thought. I reckon that if i guy tells me has the wart type I won't sleep with him until I made sure it's really serious. Having warts scares me since I'm a compulsive skin picker.

Re: hpv and dating

HPV is extremely common so the poster who points out that he could already have the virus is completely correct. It is possible to have the virus and not know it unless you have an abnormal pap smear or a strain that causes warts. Personally I found out due to abnormal paps and my OB/GYN was very clear about how common this virus is.
Good luck with whatever you both decide.

Re: hpv and dating

He sounds like a good guy. He just wants to be careful, but hes still with you so thats good.

For me, I found out I had it 5 years ago and since then, only 1 woman hasnt wanted to sleep with me because of it, and it was a situation I probably shouldnt have been in anyways (didnt know each other very long before getting physical).

Like its been said, the majority of people already have it anyway. Several of the women Ive told just turned right around and said, yeah, Ive already had that.
