assume my bf is the reason I have genital warts again?

ive been with my bf for almost a year. I'm confused. He had a weird bump on his penis about a month ago and I recall him saying that his ex knew he couldn't be cheating on her.. Why would she say that? Does he have an STD?? I had genital warts 12 years ago removed and nothing at all for 12 years and now I have what I believe are warts but how is that possible? Is it from me 12 years ago or is he the reason? And why did his weird bump clear up so fast unless he knew he had it and he takes meds??? Am I to assume my bf is the reason I have genital warts again? HELP!!!!

Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

It is very difficult to say whether you got the warts because of previous infection or currently from your boyfriend. For this both of you need to be tested. Also, you need to get the antibodies done to determine whether this is a recent or past infection. Please consult your doctor regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
