Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. You asked me if I had the wart causing HPV or the type that caused an abnormal pap smear. It caused an abnormal pap smear. I actually had this a long time ago, but have been learning some new things about it and realize there were others who were at risk from being with me and am just trying to figure out if I should let them know. When I was told about it, I was told I was only contagious if I had warts. I think because it was a long time ago perhaps they didn’t fully understand it at that time. I did have to have a leep (she said I was in the highest dysplasia stage before it were to turn into cancer), but like I said she told me I was contagious if I had warts. So, that definitely conflicts with current science. I figure it is better late then never to inform people especially since HPV can lead to cancer. Also to answer your other question, I am asymptomatic for the HSV2 and am currently not taking anything because I am not currently sexually active and am not planning to be.
One of my questions would be: So, it sounds like from what you are stating with the 3rd scenario being the highest risk and especially with hpv, that it is possible for a man to get hpv from me when he goes to the bathroom after touching my genital region because it can survive under his nails and he has to touch himself in order to go to the bathroom. Am I understanding correctly?
I don’t really seem to have another question. You were very thorough at answering my first inquiry and that really helps me see what the risk was to others when I had hpv and what the hsv2 risk is. If I do have another question, when should I ask by?
Thank you for all of your time and efforts. I appreciate you and what you are doing very much.
