so I found out I tested positive for HPV and now I feel dirty it says it's super common but it stresses me out and I've been with the same partner for the last two months and he gave it me to be fair they don't test males for it so it's not his fault but I can't help but feel lied to and Im stressed about the increased risk of cervical cancer and it's taking a heavy toll on my mental health and my relationship and I don't know how to talk to my family about it or to my partner about it with out it seeming like I'm blaming him

      I have the same thing. I have had a difficult mental acceptance of it at first since there was difficulty removing my abnormal cells that formed.
