HPV and Marriage help?
agirl2013 posted:
I just got a call that my pap showed low grade abnormalities which they think is due to HPV. There are no visible warts anywhere on me or my husband I am going back in, in a few days for a coloscopy. I just got married 5 months ago. I have only had two partners one who claimed he was a virgin when we got together but he cheated on me several times and my husband now who has had a very active sex life in the past. This may be a stupid question but is there any way to determine if my husband gave this to me or not? We have only been together sexually for about a year. Can abnormal cells develop that quickly with HPV? Also if it is HPV we both have it now can it be passed back and forth to each other? Do we need to be careful about sex? And does my husband need to get checked for anything?

No; there is no way to determine who passed this virus (if this is what you have; your posting does not indicate that you have tested positive for HPV) onto you out of your two partners....and it really doesn't matter.

Before you ask all these questions, how about finding out if the abnormal changes on your cervix are even due to HPV. There can be other causes of this besides HPV.
