HPV tests are approved for clinical use with women as 1) follow-up with unclear Pap test results or 2) as primary screening for those over age 30.
Testing options for HPV are limited and most cases are never diagnosed.
Pap tests, for example are not specific screening for HPV; they are designed to detect abnormal cell changes of the cervix.
Most sexually active couples share HPV until the immune response suppresses the infection.It may also be a good idea to have resources to which you can direct a partner, so you know they turn to trustworthy sources for information.
