I am totally confused about hpv and testing for it. Here is my situation. I have been faithful to my husband for over 30 years. It recently came to my attention that he has been leading a secret double life with another woman for ten years and I found out that she has been infected with HPV and has had surgical treatments. She revealed this to my husband and she had his informed consent. When I was aghast, he said she had frequent pap smears and had received a "clean bill of health." What does this mean. Is it possible that she still has HPV, that it was transmitted to me through my husband? I have had an HPV test in addition to my pap smear and the results were negative. But could I not still have a latent HPV infection that may arise in the future. Should I advise any future partners of this situation?
