I was wondering how long it takes hpv to develop because I doubt it is from the guy mentioned before, also I think he knew because an ex girlfriend called him, but I think he also had GW.
There's usually no way to really figure that out. HPV can be detected weeks, months, even years after someone contracts it.
I want to know what some things to consider about getting the LEEP now versus waiting.
We can't offer any medical advice, you understand, so this is something to best sort out with your health care provider. We can chat about some things in general. There is often more than one option for dealing with abnormal cervical cell changes related to HPV, and this can be influenced even by the patient's age,as many health care providers take a more conservative approach of not jumping into treatment with adolescent and younger women who have mild/moderate changes. For dysplasia that isn't severe, follow-up sometimes does involve additional testing six months or so down the road, often followed by treatment if anything is found. In other cases, they'll want to treat, and LEEP is pretty common.
And further, at this moment how can I interact sexually? Can a person get hpv from me by giving me oral sex?
You never really know if HPV can be given to a partner - or how likely it is that you will - but it seems reasonable to assume the virus can be transmitted if there are lesions (like cell changes) present. The virus can even be passed along when nothing is detected. Condoms are a good idea with male partners: they don't 100% protect, but probably are fine for the skin they cover if you're using latex.
There continues to be more evidence linking HPV to oral sex, so I think we're safe saying oral sex is a risk factor. In spite of the fact both oral sex and HPV are common, oral diseases relate to the virus are hardly at an epidemic. No one can tell you what to do here. It seems a bit much to say "no sex, period" but do consider using condoms, getting the vaccine if you're eligible, and discussing safer sex and sexual health with a partner. It would not be unreasonable to abstain from receiving oral sex while any lesions are present.
Because of how common I've learned hpv is and how difficult it is to test in males should I no longer give blowjobs on guys I trust and know are clean from other testable stis and stds?
Here again, no one can decide this for you. For any of us who have sex there will be risk, period. Oral HPV diseases aren't rampant and concern over them should probably not be sufficient to make you swear off oral sex for life if in fact that's something you like to do. But, HPV is detected orally and there is a link between the virus and oral diseases, that's true, and foxtrot mentions his experience with oral warts. Maybe consider using condoms for any type of sex with a new partner....consider getting the vaccine....let your doctor know if you're worried about this to see what they say.
Can someone get infected from me by touching my genitals and then touching their genitals or mouth?
Probably possible but not likely.
Do I need to be concerned about kissing? (I don't think so but hey, might as well go into explicit detail!).
Don't lose sleep over it. Deep kissing has been linked with oral HPV detection, but it seems a bit much to tell people not to smooch. Deep slurpy tongue-kissing might be the thing to avoid if you're worried here. Ask your doctor about this.
Further, how do I tell any future sexual partner?
HPV is common; virtually all sexually active people have the virus but in most cases, it's harmless and clears naturally. Use condoms to reduce risk, ponder what we discussed about oral sex.
And can guys get a DNA test to find out and how much is it?
HPV DNA tests aren't approved for guys.
Also, if I find a partner with the same strain as I have can I have unprotected sex ( ignoring risks other than hpv).
Hard to nail this down. A person can have an HPV infection that has cleared and is undetectable on DNA tests, yet they still have some immune memory of it. Scratch this one as a strategy.
Hope this helps.
