is it likely that he has had sex with someone else?

User Profile
I have been living wirh my partner for 18 months but have been seeing him for 3 years. He told me 2 months ago that he has genital warts under his scrotum. He went to the doctors who gave him some cream and he told me the doctor said that it was caused by getting hot,cause he drives alot.Is it possible that this is the case? I have not got warts and i have not had sex with anyone other than my partner. Is it possible that you can get genital warts without having sex, or is it likely that he has had sex with someone else?

Hello,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Genital warts are caused by Human papilloma virus (HPV) which an STI (sexually transmitted infection). It spreads via sexual contact with oral, vaginal, anal sex. You can get infected too, if you have been having intercourse without protection. Consider getting STD screening test done by your gynecologist along with PAP smear. HPV is the most common cause for cervical cancer in women. Be vigilant and get diagnosed early with cervix changes, be in regular follow-up with your gynecologist.
