Hello and welcome to HCM,
Human papilloma virus ( HPV) is not transmitted by blood or blood products.
Thus, testing positive for HPV is not a contraindication for blood donation.
The infections transmitted from blood are HIV, Hepatitis, syphilis, cytomegaovirus, malaria and other blood parasites.
However, HPV infection places you at high risk for squamous cell carcinoma of genital tract and upper aero-digestive tract.
Thus, get the test again after taking medication.

Thanks and take care
