If a man has come in close sexual contact with a woman who has HPV, it can be assumed that he has been exposed. Her PAP and other tests came back normal earlier in the month and the virus is dormant.
Prior to that she had only 2 long term relationships - and her latest LTR ended after her man decided he wanted to marry his ex girlfriend after all.
I am having a little bit of a debate with her over how she should disclose her HPV status to potential dates.
