Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
Hello and welcome
Do you or plan on doing oral to genital sex?
Do either of you smoke?
no to both
okay well since you do NOT smoke - the HPV that you currently have will MORE than likely go away and/or go dormant since you do NOT smoke.
I don't know that I currently have oral HPV, only genital.
You really do NOT need to worry about oral HPV - because oral HPV while some of them are similar in types that cause throat cancer - people with throat cancer for the most part are smokers -
So the HPV you might get infected, but it will NOT do anything - it will go dormant or go away
So, you do NOT need to test for oral HPV as there really is NO commercial test for oral HPV since it really is NOT a problem in the world - so hence a commercial test has not been developed
but if i did have oral HPV, could I pass it to my partner through kissing?
So, overall you do NOT need to worry about HPV being transmitted
oh, that's not true, there is a test for oral HPV.
could you pass it on IF he gave you mouth to your genitals - yes that is possible - but is it a concern - no it should not be a concern.
the test for oral is not commercially available - you are looking at a different test
there is a big difference in the tests that you see on the internet and ones that we use as doctors
my dentist offers this: http://www.oraldna.com/oral-hpv-testing.html
and which have a reliability
Yes I know about that test -
people bring it up all the time
but the reliability factor for that test is not reliable
hence why we do not use it
you may want to use it for your own self knowldedge
that is fine
but from a medical standpoint we can not use it
I hope that makes sense
ok, thanks for your help
we have to use tests that are reliable

Enjoy your date with your new partner,
Dr. Owen has certainly given you a lot of information, which is all correct.
what is it you need clarification on?
I am trying to find out whether the fact that I have a genital HPV infection increases the likelihood of having an oral infection. Secondly, is it possible to transmit an oral HPV infection via kissing?
So, no..genital HPV infection will not increase your risk of oral infection.
I suppose HPV transmission would be possible via kissing, but oral HPV is quite uncommon.
You have to remember...HPV isn't that 'potent' of a virus. It infects the cervix because there is a 'transformation zone' there where cell types are changing from one form to another. The virus can insert itself there and cause infection.
I honestly don't believe you have to concern yourself about oral HPV.
