What is the incubation period of HPV?

I've been seeing someone exclusively for three months. She told me that she had an abnormal pap smear, and has been diagnosed with HPV. "YOU!! must have infected me", she yelled. I can't imagine that being the case as I have had sexual contact with only three people. Her, and two other women. The first woman and I were both virgins and we were faithful to each other while we were involved. The second woman was not a virgin, but her previous and only other partner was a confirmed virgin. She still hasn't had sex with anyone else (just the virgin and me). The only thing she bases her idea on is that her last pap smear from a year ago was "clean" and now it isn't.
I've googled quite a bit for this, and I've found anywhere from "immediately" to "several years". Whats fact on this? Could I have given her HPV and have it show up as an abnormal pap smear after 6-7 weeks after the first sexual contact?
