Question: HPV and genital warts and my parter

 krjs - Wed May 20, 2009 8:55 pm

I have HPV and so does my parter. I have genital warts and he does not. Is it safe for us to have sex? I went to the doctor today and they said it was ok but i am unsure. I was told it will not have the ping pong effect and go back and its like the chicken pox once you get it you cant get it again? is this true?
