Ok here's my question. My boyfriend of 8 years turned up with warts on his penis. I have never had them or any sign of them did i pass them to him or visa versa.
We have had sex with others but condoms were used. Could they be dormant in either of us. This has just been within the last year, he got rid of them then we had sex and he got them again. Im confused...

condoms are not 100% protection against hpv.

you will probably never figure out who had it first since most folks with hpv don't ever get obvious symptoms of it. At this point he should continue to be seen and have his symptoms treated. Not too unusual for them to come back and need treated more than once.
Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)
