Sex after HPV

Is it possible to have a sex life after being diagnosed with HPV. I have just been recently diagnosed with HPV...and I feel dirty and ashamed..and I feel like I will never have a sex life again..and that I will never be able to have any children. Is there anyone who continued there sex life with a new partner after being diagnosed with HPV..or even went on to have children?

Re: Sex after HPV

jane, do you have warts or no symptons and high risk hpv. men really don't have problems unless its the warts. they would be bothered by that. but if you have no symptoms then i would just prefer a condom. they are beginning to say that oral sex can cause head and neck cancers in people with hpv. it's up to you when to tell but i fell most men really are clueless when their are no symptoms. it's up to you when to share

Re: Sex after HPV

Hi I am new to this board. I am 42 and was diagnosed with high risk hpv and mild dysplasia 1yr ago. I took it very hard and felt the same way. I was ashamed and felt dirty. It was very hard having sex and enjoying it with my husband. To this day it is always in the back of my mind. In June I finally tested negative for hpv and only a trace of dysplasia. I do feel better that it is not active at this time.
I am sorry I don't have any answers for you. I can say it gets easier. I know acceptance is part of it. I wish I would have found this site a yr ago. Maybe it would have saved me alot of heart ache. I had no one to talk to that understood how bad I felt. Remember You are not alone and I understand how you feel.

Re: Sex after HPV

It's estimated that up to 80% of women have HPV at some point in their lives, so YES, there is definitely sex after HPV.
