My son was born in 2009 and a regular PAP at 6 weeks followed. No problem. Separated from the biological father 5 years followed wherein I committed myself as a working mom, studying and taking care of my son. Along come Mr M. 2 years followed being in a steady relationship I tested positive for high risk HPV however got a normal PAP. Dr. referred me for a biopsy - clinical history large loop excision of the transformation zone. Pap smear reported no malignant cells HPV was however positive for high risk HPV. Could I suggest that I was thus clear with no HPV at the time of my son's birth and now contracted HPV from Mr M as he was the only sexual partner since my son's birth.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

I cannot confirm you got HPV from Mr. M. Here are the facts from the CDC,"You can get HPV by having vaginal, anal, or oral sex with someone who has the virus. It is most commonly spread during vaginal or anal sex. HPV can be passed even when an infected person has no signs or symptoms.

Anyone who is sexually active can get HPV, even if you have had sex with only one person. You also can develop symptoms years after you have sex with someone who is infected. This makes it hard to know when you first became infected."
