Genital Warts and Pap smears

Hi Doc

I am on treatment for genital warts. I think I got it from my previous partner who never showed any simptoms. I had a pap smear last year November. If I had it then alread, would it have come up on the pap smear? I am trying to figure out if he is infected as well, if I got it from him, or if it had been latent for some time before.

Thanks!

There are different types of HPV virus which cause warts and changes in the pap smear, so this will not help you to determine when you got the HPV.
