Recently diagnosed with HPV...will continuing with sex make it worse or have no effect?

I recently found out I have HPV. I've only been with 1 guy, my boyfriend.We broke up for a short period last summer & in that time he slept w/someone else & apparently contracted the virus because we were both clean (I, a virgin, & he had been tested) before. Anyway, unfortunately we made the mistake of not using a condom a few times as we got wrapped up in the moment. I realize this was a mistake & I am paying dearly for it. Anyway here is my question. I have a high risk type HPV (obviously he does too, since I contracted this from him). We didn't have sex at all when I first found out until after I got a colposcopy. During the procedure my doctor said it was a very small area & no treatment needs to be done right now, just follow up paps every 3 months. He told me he doesn't think I have much to worry about. So..will continuing having sex with an infected person mean that the HPV will worsen in my body? Since I'm infected is it possible for my case to get worse each time I sleep w/bf

I'm not sure, but I think once you have HPV or any other std.. once you have it-you have it. In other words, I believe it's like someone catching the flu and then being exposed to someone else with it. It's not going to worsen the fact.

Once you have acquire an HPV type or types you can't get it again...you will not ping pong the virus back and forth. The decision would be yours if you would want to continue to have sex. Your cervix will come in contact with more of the virus particles. HPV enters little micro abrasions that are created during sex. HPV is most often controlled by your immune system right now your body has probable not built the antibodies it will need to fight the virus. The small area could regress or it could get worse. Condoms do help in the regress of the virus and condoms do provide more protection to your cervix.. Sadly condoms do not prevent the transmission of the virus. Your boyfriend should also have a good visual with an acid solution to see if he has small visible warts. Studies have show that men may carry these flat warts when there partner has high risk HPV types of the cervix. There is no HPV/DNA test for the male so he could carry high risk HPV types and not show any signs. HPV is not included in an STD screening. I wish you well.

No, it will not make it any worse. There are many certain types of HPV, and you both have the same type, obviously since you got it from him. It will not get any worse, or any better for that matter by having sex. If you have sex with someone else however, and this other person has another type of HPV, you can get another kind which can make it worse. so with him youre okay, but if anyone else, use a condom. Also, if you havent already, ask your doctor to give you the Gardisil shot, it will protect you from all of those other types of HPV that are out there that you dont have.

You can know the answer to this question by studying God's habit of smoking cigarettes, when and where. For example, my church really digs watching God light one up while we’re fooling around during communion. This is new to us. I’m not saying my church is the be all end all of Human Sexuality, fetishisms, partialisms, or kinks in general just because we do it more than most churches, but it’s especially strange because God is a non-smoker. So my church does it every once in a while. Though not as often as we would like (mostly because we tend to mess around indoors near the altar more often than outdoors, and we don’t want to stink up the sanctuary too often). Anyway, we’ve been keeping ourselves in the safe zone as far as smoking only while drinking, and have been tending not to light one up ever after sex. So we don’t feel bad when God occasionally has one if He's upset or something and if He doesn’t happen to have a drink in His hand (for whatever reason.

YOU DO NOT WANT TO HAVE UNPROTECTED SEX UNTIL YOU FIND OUT ITS CLEAR, YOU DO NOT WANT RISK EFFECTING SOMEBODY OR WORSING YOUR SELF ALSO WHAT A LOT OF PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW EFFECTING SOMEBODY WITH A STD CAN ALSO BE A CRIME IF THAT PERSON KNOWS ABOUT THEIR CONDITION
