Hi and welcome to HCM.
It could have been trasnmissed 3 years ago and virus could have been in inactivated form till now. Also there is a possiblity for transmission by contact(hands, lips). more important then how did you get it is the evaluation of HPV changes on cervix. Now, just do frequent check ups and biospy if needed.
Wish you good health.
