Ending a relationship with someone because they have HPV is unnecessary. With vaccination and safer sex practices, you can continue to have a healthy sex life while avoiding stress and anxiety. With that said, most couples should work from the assumption that both they HPV, even if theres no way to find out.
Should I not date if I have HPV?
HPV can be spread through intimate skin-to-skin contact. This means that using a condom may not protect against HPV in all cases. The only real way to keep you or your partner protected against an HPV infection is to abstain from sexual contact. Thats rarely ideal or even realistic in most relationships, though.
