Has my partner cheated?

Hi, iv had a positive hpv but a negative 3 years ago, iv been qith my partner for 7 years…does this mean he has cheated?

I’ve been with my husband 21 years - never had a positive HPV till this year.
From what I’ve read it can lay dormant.
So no i would like to think no cheating has happened

It can lay dormant for years after the point you get it, then for whatever reason become active. So it doesn’t mean that he cheated.

I’ve recently found out I was positive for HPV and this same question crossed my mind has my husband cheated. When saw this question it really did reassure me, that I’m not alone that others got similar questions too. Also reading above comments & doing my own reading too your right it can stay dormant in your body.
