    If I have cervical HPV can my boyfriend get/contract genital HPV or genital warts if I DO NOT have the HPV 6 or 11 virus? Basically, If I do not have genital HPV or genital warts, can my boyfriend get them?

    there are over 30 different types of hpv that cause infections in the genital area. you can have multiple types infecting you at any one time.

    if you have a hpv dna test with a pap, does that mean that you don't have external hpv infections that cause obvious genital warts? no it does not. unfortunately we don't have commercially available tests for external hpv infections to know.

    have you and your bf had your gardasil shots yet?
    Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)
