Dear Anon,

Although it may seem as though having HPV in your genitals would mean that you also have it in your mouth and anus, this is not necessarily true. You could have your gynecologist test your mouth and anus for HPV and while it may help you narrow down how it happened, it also may not. 

A result that indicates: low-risk means that further testing is necessary because there is a possibility of HPV. Your gynecologist may want to confirm that you do have HPV before proceeding with other exams.

Please keep us posted,
