i have been recently diagnosed with having hpv and i have been in an eight year relationship where as far as i know we have both only had sex with each other. he recently used a bar of soap after a roommate that he just recently started living with. he swears up and down there has been no cheating so ive been thinking to myself of other ways that i could have gotten this. i read somewhere else that another way of getting hpv is not only from sexual intercourse but also from touching an infected persons genitals and then touching your own. if they shared soap right after each other could this be a way that he could have contracted it and then given it to me since that would be touching both genitals potentially?
