HPV tests

Hi,

I received 5 months ago an unprotected fellatio and had potected vaginal sex with an escort.

I did not have any noticeable genital warts. I did an HPV PCR DNA blood test at 3 months - Negative.

1- how accurate is such test?
2- do I need to do a swab test or any other tests?

I have a stable gf and would like to transmit anything.

Thanks

Thank you for your reply, but where I tested they took blood for the test as it is a DNA test I imagine it could also be semen right ?

There are such tests outside the US.

Are there any available HPV tests for men according to you?

How can I make a test for HPV if there r no visible warts with the naked eye?

Should I consult a doctor to check in more details for warts?

Yes, go see a dermatologist and ask for a visual check. But there is no accurate test in the US for men. What you described is very low risk.

They can only biopsy seen warts.  If you don't have any, there is nothing to biopsy.
