Hi.. I was tested positive for HPV (high risk types) last week. I am freaking out.. I have had 2 relationships so far.. and my current BF has not been with anyone before me, which means I got it from my first BF, which was more than 5 years back. I have never been tested for HPV before. What does this mean? HPV has been dormant in me for more than 5 years? What is the meaning of dormancy in HPV? If tested, would it have showed negative all these 5 years? Should'nt my immune system have cleared it up in 5 years? Also my PAP was normal.
