I am male, my partner is female.
I have no obvious symptoms apart from occasional itching around the anus. Unfortunately I have no idea how long ago I was exposed or who contracted it first, we have been together for 10 years.
I have no other medical issues.
My partner has recently had kidney stones and now has a small amount of blood in her urine. She also has mouth ulcers (not sure if related).
She has intermediate uveitis, and is under special treatment of Moorfields eye hospital.
No idea if any/all inter related

We also have a 7 month old baby. The eye issues started in the second trimester and the kidney issues when baby was around 4 months old.
No other signs or symptoms prior to the pregnancy.

HPV is so common that almost every sexually active human on the planet will get infected at some point in their life.

As such, there is no need to do genetic strain testing (there are over 40 strains) to try and figure out if you infected each other or got it somewhere else.

In the majority of infected people the HPV does not cause any problems.

Here is some very good information from a highly respected source that you might find interesting:

My concern was not how it was contracted, more the potential for cancer causing abnormalities from high risk strains and possible links to the kidney problems....
Expert:  wieyedoc replied 22 days ago.

I do not know of any links to kidney problems....

But it you want genetic strain testing the only place to do that would be at the CDC in the USA and whatever the UKs equivalent is. Also, some large university teaching hospitals might offer this sort of testing.
But, if I were you? I'd not spend the time and money as you will only get statistical probabilities that will not really help you or your partner to know your specific, individual risk.

Make sense?

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
