Hello Nana19923,
You owe it to your partner to tell your partner that you have been exposed to the HPV virus. Wouldn't you want your partner to be honest with you, if the roles were reversed?

Genital human papillomavirus or HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection. There are more than 40 HPV type that infect the genital areas of both women and men.

In 90% of HPV cases, the body's immune system clears the virus naturally within two years. But, sometimes HPV infections are not cleared and can cause genital warts. This is your case. The virus will remain in your body for life.
