Re: hpv

I can't give you numbers, but I can tell you there is a chance you were exposed to HPV because of his sexual history.

HPV is transmitted by skin to skin contact, not body fluids. Condoms do not give full protection against HPV.

Re: hpv

Since you have been vaccinated, the chances that you have been protected against the strain he may have is pretty high, like 75-80% (it only protects against the 4 most common strains). That means if you did get one of the strains the vaccine protects against, it wouldn't actually do anything. Just remember that even though you have been vaccinated, you should still have regular PAP tests.
