I was diagnosed with high risk HPV that was pre-cancerous. I had the procedure and have had normal paps since then (about 5 years). The problem that my boyfriend (who was my boyfriend at the time, but not the source of the infection has an autoimmune disorder and around that time was taking immunosuppressants, so I am now terrified, based on recent news, that he will be at high risk. I was healthy with a robut immune system and I didn't just fight it off. Is there anything we can do to test for the virus? Will he be able to fight off the virus even though taking immunosuppressants?View Thread
