I was diagosed with abnormal cells in the cervix caused by high risk HPV relatively recently. (High risk is what doctor's call the HPV strains that can cause cervical and other cancers - they differentiate it from HPV strains that cause genital warts.)
I've found this website helpful for HPV and other STI information as well as general sexual health - http://www.ashastd.org/std-sti/hpv.html
I've written a lot about HPV in several threads including my old blogs. Feel free to take a look - might be helpful for you.
