I have been told by my now ex wife that I have HPV, I went to have tests done on it to see what the status would be. I also got tested for all of the other STD'S out there and they all came back negative which is good. But what I was told that it won't show up on tests for men, I'm still a carrier. I am wanting to know if I'll still be able to have kids.

Hey Jazzman,

Yes you will be able to have children. There is truly no specific test for men which is a shame becuase I know the fellas would like to know if they have HPV. The only way doctor's can tell if a man has HPV is from a visual inspection that show Genital Warts. You can still be a carrier but as far as children, sure can have them :D
