I have just recently discovered my husband had a sexual experience with a massage therapist. He did not have intercourse with her, but did touch her vagina with his hand. Later he discovered he had a fresh paper cut on that hand. He has been tested two times over the past year for STD's with completely negative results. I am wondering if I should be tested for HPV because of this. I am 59 years old, have never had sex with anyone other than my husband, and had a hysterectomy 11 years ago. Am I at risk?

Re: Hpv

Unfortunately, yes you are at risk. Yes, you need to ask your doctor to do the HPV/dna test. Are you going for regular paps still? I hope so.

The bad news about men and HPV is that there is no FDA approved test for screening men. Even though your husband was checked for STDs, there was no way to check him for high risk HPV (which is the type of HPV that can lead to cancer if undetected/untreated).
