3 questions about hpv i cannot find answers to

Hi there. I am 21 years old, and have had two sexual partners (one is my current boyfriend). My doctor just gave me the results from my first pap smear back, and at some point, I contracted HPV and now have atypical cells.

I have several questions because I was too shocked to think of much to ask my doctor. Hopefully someone can help me out

1. Before I had sex for the first time, my then-boyfriend was fully tested. I know now that HPV cannot be tested for, so I'm curious whether, if he was the one to pass HPV to me, had HPV stayed in his system forever, so he would pass it to all future partners? I had thought that HPV, as a virus, infects a person and then

Most men do not know they have HPV and unknowingly pass it on to other partners. It's hard to say whether your current boyfriend or your ex carried the virus. HPV is passed on through skin to skin contact, does not have to be vaginal sex. Most people's bodies are able to get rid of HPV with no symptoms or problems. Make sure you get treatments and checked regularly! There is some great information at the Center for Disease control that may help you better understand what is going on.
