HPV- genital-hand-gential contact and through underwear?
I was diagnosed with genital High risk hpv about 8 months ago. I recently fooled around with a guy that I like. I gave him a blowjob, and afterwards we watched each other masturbate. Thinking back on it, I am pretty sure I avoided touching his penis after touching myself, but there is one time I am not sure about. Basically, my question is: Is it possible/likely that I transmitted my hpv to him by touching his penis after touching myself? If it is, should we be worried about it, or do you think it will go away on its own? I know most people clear up any HPV infections but I've just been worrying about this a lot.
Also, he rubbed my clitoris through my underwear for a few minutes, but I made him wash his hand afterwards. Is there a significant risk that he could have transferred it to his penis after washing his hand?
