Lightbulb Question concerning HPV...

Well, I am not 100% sure yet, because I haven't been to the doctor, but I believe I have a genital wart strain of HPV...

Well, I've read that you are very likely to contract HPV with the more sexual partners you've had, so my question is this.

I have been with my boyfriend for around 2 years, but we split up for a couple weeks about a year ago... He had sex with one of my friends, which I found out relatively easy, because she told me out of guilt... (I forgave him, obviously.) Well, she's slept with so many guys that I can't even count them, and I don't even want to think about how many girls those guys have slept with, and she's not too smart, and I know she doesn't use condoms often. He told me he used a condom, she told me he didn't. He finally admitted about a month ago that he didn't. Well, I made him get tested because I was very worried about HIV.. Not even thinking about HPV, I didn't get tested... Everything turned out negative, but since I didn't go, I don't know if I have HPV... I just assumed if he were negative, I would be since we are very sexually active and don't use condoms... But guys don't get tested for HPV, right? So if the odds of getting HPV are so high, that would probably mean I have many different types of the virus because of how many people she has slept with and the fact that he slept with her? I am almost positive I got the genital warts from him sleeping with her, because I had never noticed any sort of bumps before then.

Aside from that question, I was wondering if since I haven't been tested for HPV in around a year, if I DID have a type that is known to be very high risk for cervical cancer, in a years time, would it be in a later stage if I got it when this all happened? (PLEASE answer this question at least.)

One more, sorry. Is there ANY possible chance that she couldn't have any kind of HPV and that we didn't get it from her?

Sorry for the short story, I am just so worried and the health department doesn't do testing until Thursday and I have no money to go to a normal doctor.

Re: Question concerning HPV...

Hi Amplifies, there are some good threads regarding HPV on the HPV boards. Also you can go to Center for Disease Control andy you may find answers to some of your questions. I found out I have HPV last year, started with warts and on from there. Warts are said to be from low risk strains. Have you had any abnormal paps? USUALLY (there are exceptions) you will have an abnormal pap if your cervix has abnormal cells/dysplasia. Of course you always want to be diagnosed early to get appropriate treatments, get checked regularly (each year) or as indicated by your doctor. My paps have always been normal, even after warts and abnormal cells/dysplasia on vulva area.
Also, there is no way to pinpoint timeframes when a person gets HPV. It can lie dormant for years. I have been married for over 17 years and found out last year I had HPV. I am in a monogamous relationship, but we both had our share of partners before getting married.
Condoms do not fully protect you against HPV, all it takes is skin to skin contact and condoms do not fully cover areas that may be infected.
There is no HPV test for men, most do not know they have it unless visible signs such as warts.
Good luck and take care!
