could hpv 20 years ago have infected my husband with something now?

As the result of an affair, I contracted hpv 20 years ago and it was resolved by my doctor and I've had no abnormal paps or issues since then. I've also been monogamous since then. Recently my husband contracted what the doctor thinks is a prostate/urinary tract infection. The doctor has insinuated that it was transmitted sexually. I have no worries about my husband's faithfulness but could the hpv from 20 years ago have infected him now with something?

HPV is caused by a virus...a UTI is a bacterial infection, they are not connected in anyway, shape or form.
