Has anyone actually had their boyfriend tested for this? I've "heard" that there is not test. But I wanted to read other's experiences.

Re: Hpv

I have read that if you see a 'wart' or any kind of lesion on the penis, they can test that area for HPV. I am not exactly sure how they do that, though.

Re: Hpv

Most of the time men do not show any symptoms of having HPV. Lucky us! It is rare that men will have a wart, but KitKat is right, if they do, the wart can be tested. I'm not sure how either though. I'm sure it would be a procedure your BF would just *love* to have done.

Re: Hpv

From what I gather they take a scrapping from the wart that is on their privates however, any doctor would probably be able to identify a wart by looking at it and can automatically say its HPV since a wart is present.
