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. [more inside]

HPV disclosure?

HPV etiquette: Given the ubiquity of this organism and its imperviosness to condom use, what is the etiquette for informing a new sexual partner that you have been discovered to harbor the virus, for both men and women? (Given the absence of symptoms and the inability to test in males, some sleuthing will disclose how it was discovered.) For women, if you have been diagnosed with the virus at age 20, should you be expected to disclose it to new partners indefinitely?
