first of all, 70% of women will get HPV, in one form or another, over the course of their lifetime.  Some types go away, some will give you symptoms for the rest of your life – and the symptoms can vary wildly.  All of them are manageable, and with proper care shoul not effect your ability to have children or a healthy sex life. So relax.

 

But see your gyno immediately.  Talk to them about your fears, have a pap smear, get some testing and figure out your best options.  Have this conversation with a doctor, not a message board.  And make sure your partner also talks to a doctor.

I’m so very sorry you’re going through this.  I really think you should visit your doctor soon and get tested.  They can explain what you have better than we can and talk you through treatments.  You have my sympathies and I think you’re a great person for realizing he didn’t mean to infect you.

HPV doesn’t go away, but some types don’t manifest into anything harmful.  Some types, but not all, are connected to higher likelihood to develop cervical cancer.  Testing will tell you what type you have.  You will likely need to have a pap smear more often than those without HPV, but not necessarily.  Like others have said, your best bet is to go to your doctor and talk everything out with him/her.

I have HPV. It is likely a test won’t show anything (which is why your FI wouldn’t have known he had it) – you actually need to have a breakout to know, most of the time, because they test the actual warts. It won’t affect your sex life (if you have a breakout you probably won’t feel like having sex since it will be uncomfortable, but that’s ok) and unless you have a break out when you are actually going through the physical act of child birth, it won’t affect your children either. Go and talk to your doctor and don’t worry – it’s not as big a deal as it feels at the time (and I remember how awful I felt, it really was horrible) and nothing to be ashamed about at all. Sending hugs!

I’m so sorry you’re feeling so scared and I’m so sorry that you’re going through this.

I think what you should do is see your gynecologist as soon as possible.  Until you know for sure, there’s no sense worrying.  Get yourself tested.

In the meantime, if you and your fiance are sexually active, you should very strongly consider not exposing yourself any more than you already have.  That may be difficult but it’s probably the best thing to do right now.  Get tested, find out what your status is, and go from there.

Sending you hugs and love.

I wouldn’t be worried.  If you were having a breakout, you would know and nothing serious is going to happen overnight.  Have you been getting regular pap smears?  If so, that would have tested for abnormal cells that could have occurred from the HPV.
