  • ok so hpv is geital warts? so if I had them (no no signs just wundering) then the test would come back positive? I have been with only ppl my whole life ( almost 28) and with the same guy for the last 10 years (married 7) neither has cheated I am 100% sure.. It just scares me sometimes because my mom was only with 2 guys my dad being the last one which she devoriced when I was 1 never hooked up again... 25 years later she started getting them, and the doc said they could lay dormate for years without showing up (which they did) which was a totaly shocker and heartbreaker for my mom.. Know it just scares me.. I know I am being parinoid (sp?) but I know what she is going through and I don't ever want to go through that!

  • I was tested for HIV, HPV, chylmidia, and gonerrhea. I have herd that HIV and HPV can lay dormant for awhile and people who have them wont have any symptoms. Sometimes you can be tested for HIV and get a false negative but 6 months- a year (I think) and then be tested again and get a postive if you are infected.

  • HPV is a family of viruses (about 200 types) that can cause warts and cervical cancer. Not every type is dangerous. Not every type is sexually transmitted. Most go away on their own. Up to 90% of the US population has had an HPV infection at some point.
