Thanks in advance for your help. I've been monogamously married for 9 year and was (at. Age 41) just found to be hr hpv + and have severe displasia. (my previous pap was fine 18 months earlier). Is it inaccurate to assume that my husband and I have, and will continue, to pass this virus back and forth? And being such, should we use a condom for now on?
Also, I do not fit any of the risk factors for getting severe displasia, except maybe not the greatest nutrition (although, I am slim and exercise and I don't eat fast food, I also don't eat a pound of raw broccoli daily either). I plan to take. Avoid based vitamin now and dim, is there anything else you would recommend? Is there something my husband can do to lessen our chances of transfer, short of wearing condom (that was the whole point of his visectomy, after all).
Lastly, is it unusual to suddenly have severe dysplasia after 10 years of negative PAPS? How likely is it that it takes so long for hpv type 16 to come out of dormancy? (yes, this is a trust issue- a natural response, I think?) And, can exercise be the kind of stress that brings it out?
