In a monogamous relationship diagnosis of HPV infection usually creates a problem in the couple’s relations. Once the infection is diagnosed in one of the two partners, the other partner worries about the possible existence of a third person.

Discovery however of HPV infection simply means that this person was infected sometime during his or her lifetime. No one can know exactly when or by whom. Furthermore, no one can know which of the two partners infected the other (except in the case where one of the two had no prior sexual activities).
