Should I Tell Future Partners That I Have Hpv?

Postby Cooke » Sun Oct 08, 2017 1:37 pm

During a pap smear a earlier this year, some abnormal cells showed up and after follow up testing I was informed I have HPV, but the strand I have doesn't cause any effects suchs as warts or cervical cancer and when I went back for my 6 month follow up, I was informed that it was undetectable and that even though its harmless, HPV never leaves your body and that 80% of sexually active adults have some strand of HPV. After doing research online I found that to be true but my question is, should I have to inform future sexual partners of this even though its harmless and even now undetectable? How could being HPV positive affect any future relationships?

No you don't need to tell anybody. There are that many strains. Most people at some point in their life will have it. Strains 16 and 18 are the ones most likely to cause cervical cancer but that doesn't mean to say it will progress to cancer. It will not affect any future relationship as like you said it harmless so don't worry. If you had HIV then that'll be a different story ........
