  • You must have gotten it after giving birth or right at the end of pregnancy.

  • i got hpv...i didnt have it while i was preg..i never cheated and nither had my dh...
    The doc said you might have had it for a while and never showed up on the test.
    Your amoun?sp system is diff after you have a baby so there is no telling when you got it.
    i had this question the other day.
