She tells me about 90% of the guys never call her back after the news.My thought on the subject is that she should not be giving out that info until at least the 2nd or maybe the 4th date. It is the planet’s most common sexually transmitted infection. The weird thing is that men don’t seem to know about HPV.You don’t need to have intercourse to get it and it can be transmitted by skin rubbing on skin. Around 50 percent of all men are carriers and pass on the disease, but they have no idea.Oddly, I first learned about HPV a couple years ago from a man I was dating.I had vaguely heard of it, but didn’t know exactly what it was.It may also be a good idea to have resources to which you can direct a partner, so you know they turn to trustworthy sources for information.
This may be the area where you feel most vulnerable, and the lack of clear counseling messages can make this even more stressful, especially where relationships are concerned.There's no commercial test used to detect the genital virus in men.Testing for oral HPV is available, but it isn't widely recommended.This is to help establish your own comfort level and is where knowledge really does equal power.One of the most important aspects of coping with HPV, and helping partners develop a good understanding of the virus, is getting factual information and avoiding myths and hype.
