Paranoid about high risk HPV infection

I am in a monogamous marriage but we were recently hanging out with some new friends in a hot tub and I and the other woman were very intoxicated. We briefly made out, and while doing so, she slipped her fingers under my bathing suit (under the water) and briefly fingered my clitoris/labia until I pulled away and called it a night (our husbands were in the house when this happened). I later found out that years ago she had HPV and was treated for cervical cancer. She has since been symptom free, I believe, and has two children (after the HPV ordeal). I am completely freaking out that she may have given me HPV. Help! My husband and I want to start our family, and I'm worried to do so. I'm also worried that I may have unknowingly given my husband oral HPV and he might end up with throat cancer as a side affect. I heard that it's unlikely, but what if she touched herself first under water, and I didn't know it, and then she touched me? Panic attack central!!!

Very low low low  risk, almost impossible. This diseases requires genital skin to genital skin contact or oral to genital contact. You are fine.
