High Risk HPV, infidelity

I was recently diagnosed with High Risk HPV. I had no clue I had this. I just had a new baby and went to the doctor for a normal 6 week check up. A couple weeks later they called and told me I tested positive for High Risk HPV. My problem is, I have been with my husband since I was 14 years old, now 30. He was 17. We were both virgins in every aspect of being sexual. I have never cheated on my husband but am very convinced he cheated on me, or was sexual with someone before we got together. He denies everything. I just don't understand how I could have contracted this disease. The only explanation is he cheated. The type of HPV I have is the one that causes cervical cancer, no other signs or symptoms occur with this. If he didn't cheat on me, then how the hell did this happen. A person with only one sexual partner in their life is not supposed to get an STD. I'm just so frustrated and confused.

Re: High Risk HPV, infidelity

Alright, breathe. There is much we still do not understand regarding HPV, it's mode of transmission, and its infectious biology. There are medically documented cases of virgins contracting HPV. Some experts surmise that HPV may be transmitted by hand/genital contact, or even from medical equipment that has not been properly sterilized. Given this, potentially ANY type of sexual contact could have potentially transmitted HPV. You and your husband both had never been touched by anyone else prior to your getting together? If you're now in your thirties, that's quite some time to remember all the way back. Perhaps he had forgotten an instance of mild sexual contact, or something of the sort. This is a very unusual case, but I don't think it's reflective of infidelity because there is still a great deal we are learning about HPV.
