User :   Is it possible to just now get HPV with only one sex partner for the past 28 years?
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hello
Doctor :   It is very difficult to get if both are faithful to each other and you cannot get if there is a single partner for both of them.
User :   Is it possible for it to lay dormate for 28 years?
Doctor :   That is quite impossible, as i havent seen myself in my career anything that dormant.I am sorry to say that.
User :   Is it highly possible that one partner has been unfaithful?
Doctor :   HPV enters the body, usually through a break in the skin, and then infects the cells in the layers of the skin. The virus then replicates or multiplies in the body. The time between first contracting HPV and the appearance of lesions can be weeks to months .
Doctor :   HPV is transmitted by skin-to-skin contact. HPV infections that cause skin warts (e.g., plantar or common warts) can be acquired through a cut, but the risk of transmission is low. Walking barefoot in public areas such as the gym or pool can be a risk for infection with the types of HPV that cause plantar warts.
Doctor :   But did your partner get plantar warts
User :   An irregular pap smear showing the HPV is probaly asexual transmission
User :   no plantar warts
Doctor :   Pap smear is for sure Sexual , not asexual.
Doctor :   As genital warts being asexual is less than 0.1%
User :   Thank you. My nurse is tellin ge that the HPV can be dormat for up to 30 years she is trying to protect me don't you agree
Doctor :   I have seen in patients for 5 yrs, and research has rarely seen 30 yrs.
Doctor :   thank you for ocnsulting me
Doctor :   take care
Doctor :   bye for now
