Hello, well i just found out that i have hpv 16 and i am almost sure i gave it to my partner since we have been having sex without any protection for months. i haven't gotten any warts or symptoms. i want to know what my partner can do to be healthy. since there's no test for a guy it makes it harder for us. I recently got the gardasil shot which was after i got hpv 16and had sex with the guy i possibly given it to a day after. So my questions are: 1) will having sex with him conflict with the gardasil and recovering process? 2)so if my test come up negative before his can we still have sex with each other without him giving it to me? 3) if i continue having sex with him will we be passing it back and forth? 4) is drinking and smoking cigs that harmful to the recovery process? 5) can he get blood work somewhere to know for sure if he has it?

Hi Dancer1234,

Sometimes it can be a bit difficult to explain HPV, so I looked it up in the best place on the internet to find information on STD's-- the Center for Disease Control site: http://www.cdc.gov/std/treatment/2010/hpv.htm

Please read through this thoroughly and it should clarify any questions you may have.

Good Luck!
