Maybe I caught it from the toilet seat?

I have been dating the same man for 4 years. We've been monogamous for about 3 and a half years. When we became monogamous, I had the full round of STD testing done, all negative. Since then, I've had regular yearly pap smears that included testing for HPV. All negative. Until today, when my doctor called me to tell me that the pap smear I had last week tested positive for HPV.

He told me that he had no idea how that could have happened, but it was no big deal. He said not to do anything differently in my life at all, except coming in for another pap smear in 6 months instead of a year. I am freaking out here. Can anyone think of any way I could have come down with HPV after three and a half years of clean tests except my boyfriend cheating on me? Is it really true that HPV is no big deal? If you were me, would you go in for all the other STD tests just in case?
