Sexually Transmitted Diseases/HPV risk


Here it goes. Had protected vagina sex with a prostitute 12 weeks ago. Have been tested for all stds that are possible to test for and all have been negative. That leaves me with just HPV and I have been obsesseing over the possibility of infection and passing on to my wife. First time I cheated in 10 year marriage. My questions are what are the chances I caught hpv from this single act? I have had 0 symptoms since exposure and did wear a condom. How lucky my do I have to wait for symptoms to appear? The last 12 weeks have been miserable, which I deserve. When can I have unprotected sex with my wife? I have avoided sex for 12 weeks. Again it was one exposure with condom and no warts or anything for 12 weeks past exposure. Thanks for your help.


If you were tested for "everything" then you're clear. However, just a note, condoms don't necessarily protect your body from HPV because it only covers the penis (not the entire groin). If you went to be examined for everything though, I don't see why you should be worried about HPV because you would have to have some form of growth to exhibit a "symptom." Is there anything noticeable that you would want me to look at? Or is there nothing at all? If so, then I would say you're home free. Take care of yourself.

Cheers mate,
