Question: Can Boyfriend give me HPV from ex girlfriend?

 italianRHB - Tue Mar 24, 2009 3:11 pm

Well I have been with my guy for about a year now though I started getting these two bumps between my anus and my vagina. Then for a couple of days my clitorius started to itch when anything rubbed on it. The itch has gone away but the bumps have became a bit bigger. I know that my boyfriends ex was a not faithful and had slept with everyone. So I am sure she has tons of STD but I was wondering if I could get it if he had gotten it from her? He does not know if he has it or not.

User avatar Hello,
It can be very difficult if not impossible to determine the source of infection, especially when you can't be sure of sexual history of partners. This is one risk of casual sex. At this point, it doesn't really matter where it originated; you just have to deal with it and get treatment so see your doctor if you haven't already.

Best wishes.
