Recently my partner told me that she was diagnosed with HPV after she had noticed warts around genitals. A couple of months later I started to notice that I had developed them as well. According to her, I caused it because I have had other partners in the past and she said that she has not. At this point, I guess I am not concerned who infected who, especially because at that time I had another partner as well, because our relations was in serious strain for years at that time and I got emotionally and then physically involved with this other person.
there is the possibility that I got it from the second person, but she claims that she does not have HPV and does not exhibit any visible signs either. But interestingly enough, when she found out that I have HPV, she was not concerned at all and has continued to engage and encourage sexual relation.
I got my warts treated with Cryo but after a couple of months they are back. She is the only one I have had any sexual contact with for the last 6 months or more. I am no longer with the 1st partner.
My question is: Did my warts return because I continue to have sexual contact with this person? or they would have recurred regardless? Does continued exposure to a person that has HPV (according to her she does not have any symptons, has had pap done) makes my infection worse?View Thread
