Sadly, my girlfriend and I broke up several months ago, and I am left with great uncertainty on how to approach my future sex partners.
My ex girlfriend had HPV (not the warts causing strains) and did not disclose it to me only until after we have had sex (since her doctor said it was not neccessary). We have been together for about 2 years, and always used condoms. During our time together, her tests were always good, but the virus was detectable via PCR.
Today I believe that the chances of me carrying her HPV strain are fairly low, since even if I was exposed I probably cleared it by now (first exposure was 2.3 years ago) but I can never be certain...
I am now wondering if I should have "the talk" with future partners or just go on with my life as some doctors (including my own) suggest. I know that 70-90% of sexually active adults will be subjected to HPV but I am afraid that many people in my country are uninformed and talking about it can cause unneccessary stress.
What would you do?
