I am in a monogamous relationship. Can I still get HPV?

Yes, you can. Many people become infected during one of their first sexual contacts. An HPV infection can be dormant (latent) in small, unmeasurable amounts. This latent infection can flare up and become active. If so, the population screening can help detect the infection.

So even if you are in a monogamous relationship, it is still important to take part in the population screening.
