OK, sorry, is it possible? Anything is possible. I guess knowing that HPV can live under people’s fingernails makes me say it is possible. It is also possible that you could get run over by a truck leaving your home, but that’s very unlikely, right? So is the HPV transmission in this way.
Also, I think if your HPV was a long time ago and you’ve had abnormal paps since, I don’t think I would worry about HPV at this point. What we now know about HPV is that many people do clear the virus after a while. However, we also now know that when those same people, when severely immunocompromised, may show virus once again.
My honest opinion about your questions is that you are trying very hard to do the right thing but in this case, you are overthinking it a bit.
