hello Dr Whitney. What you say is very true it can be from 37years ago. It cayuses changes in the uterus tat back in the 80s were just called dysplasia or atypia. now pathologist know t call them koilocytotic cells(basket cells). That's why kids are offered Gardasil vaccine for HPV to prevent and transmission at young ages in 20s and younger now a days. The virus lies dormant for years in males and females does not always show as a lesion in either sex unless checked with acetic acid(vinegar) . I hope that help, please rate thank you

OB GYN Doctor: Ross, Doctor replied 9 months ago

the virus can be dormant not shed or show up all the time, your husband may have developed antibodies and never had a lesion
