I'm 51 and my last pap came bak normal but I was told I tested positive for high risk HPV. My md told me just to continue life as normal and to get restested in 6 months. I have been in a relationship for the last 11 years and my pap's have always been normal. Now my question is not so much about the worries in regard to developing cervical cances because I understood the chances are slim and if I get tested on a regular base I will detect changes in an early stage. My question is:do we have to start using condoms after being together for 11 years? And do we have to stop oral sex? My Dr's nurse said "No reason to change a thing and no need for condoms" But I'm not sure how knowledgable she was.And after hearing this my partner is still worried about catching oral cancer due to the HPV so is now afraid to perform oral sex.
