When would you expect to be told?
I told a woman I am meeting next week before we even met because I didn't want to have her freak out about it and have essentially wasted the money/time spent on our first meet. It came up pretty naturally in conversation, though, so I didn't have to go out of my way to make it known. Turns out she was really cool about it.
Most people these days seem to be pretty educated about it (more than I expected), but is it going to be a point against him from the get go if he tells people early on? Yet if he waits is it going to seem like he was purposefully hiding it?
Personally, I don't expect to ever hear from guys that they are HPV carriers. They have no way of knowing when/if it's active or even if it's in their systems. I know it's a risk I take with every sexual partner I have, and it's a risk I'm willing to take. I also don't see myself telling anyone after it's been inactive for 6 months to a year.
