HPV timeline

My girlfriend got HPV and I think my ex had it. What I want to know is can HPV be spread at any time or is it rightaway? I have been with my new girlfriend for over a year and she got it 4or5 months ago, now I have read that people have been married for years and just got it, so as bad as it sounds, I want to find out if she got it from me or if shes been unfaithful? Basically, can it be spread after the first contact or anytime? The threads I read were inconclusive. Please help settle my suspicions!

Re: HPV timeline

There is a HUGE difference between when someone is exposed to HPV and when it is detected, especially if you are talking about high risk HPV.

The threads are inconclusive because the data/research is inconclusive. That is really frustrating.

I'm one of those people who has been in a monagmous marriage for 16 years, but was just diagnosed with high risk HPV in January. So I was exposed to it AT LEAST 16 years ago. I've been faithful. My husband has been faithful.

You cannot determine fidelity based on an HPV diagnosis.

I'm sorry I can't be of more help.

Re: HPV timeline

Hello, I have the same situation as Pickle Eyes-----I have been married for over 17 years, monogamous (both of us) and I was diagnosed last year with HPV. It's hard to say if it stemmed from me or my husband but it doesn't really matter because it can lie dormant for years. There is a chance she may have gotten it from you since you suspect your ex had it, I don't believe they can pinpoint timeframes. Check out the CDC website or ( removed ) ----they have some good information that may help answer some of your questions.
