Telling a partner

I'm normally careful and have the HPV talk with future partners but....b had a dumb drunken moment (I never get this drunk.. In fact, I rarely drink and am an extreme light weight). I ended up having unprotected sex which I regret simply in the stupidity of it. Just not my way to do things.


Fortunately, very recently I came back as clear so my high risk hpv is dormant, however, things are pursuing with this guy in our connection. I have avoided sex since but there's only so long I can keep that up without being asked the why.


How does one go about the "talk" in this scenario? Given the not so great choice of unprotected sex, I don't know how to have this chat while explaining he's ok given being dormant. I don't know if he's educated in this at all so how would you tell someone?


Also, have you had this happen? If so, how did it go?


Again, not my proudest moment.

Thank you for this question cause I’m in a similar situation right now. I’ve been wondering if he IS ok if it’s dormant? My HPV is negative now too. 

Did you already have your talk? 

I have the same situation, I have had uprotected sex with a new partner and a dormant HPV. When I look up information online one page suggests that there is litle value in revealing if the infection was in the past and other pages suggest to reveal before any intercourse.

I am wondering how your talk turned out in the end.


Hi Hianon, 

May I ask, which type of HPV did you  have?  I  didn't know that HPV  Positive Status  can change to Negative.. is it only for low riskHPV?

Thank you.
