EmpowHer Asks: If a committed woman gets HPV is that an indication that her partner is cheating? Dr. Carrie Jones Naturopathic Physician-HPV No, it’s no indicator that a committed woman acquired HPV from her current partner unless that partner is the only partner she’s ever had because the HPV virus can lay latent in the body for years and years and years before it becomes active. So I actually get that question a lot of how women come in and they swear it’s their last partner, their last boyfriend, their current husband and it really depends on their history and if they started with a history of multiple sexual partners not a 100% condom use there’s no way there’s no test to tell where the HPV came from because like I said it can hang around for years and years and years.
