Im new here and looking for some reassurance. I recently received an abnormal pap result and tested positive for one of the high-risk HPV strains. I have two young children and am worried that I could have unknowingly passed this on to one of them. For instance, the other night my daughter was on the toilet and I scratched myself 'down there' and then grabbed some toilet paper to wipe her without washing my hands first. I definitely had some discharge on my hand and I'm scared I could have given her HpV... I would never forgive myself for putting my kids at risk.
I'm sorry if I sound silly? It's just all so scary :(
