Dating with HPV

Hi All,

How do you tell someone you have HPV if you are just dating and want to sleep with them.

I was diagnosed 2 years ago and I’m still positive for a 3rd year. I’ve just had a colposcopy and they said there was only HPV related cell changes. I’m glad it’s not cancer but have huge anxiety about having what is considered an STI.

I’ve put off dating for a really long time in fear of spreading this but I don’t want to be alone forever. I do also want children in the next year or 2.

I’m dating someone new and I don’t know how to say I have it without them running a mile.

Any words of advice ?
