possible for me to transfer the HPV virus?

I was recently diagnosed with HPV and I have a condylome on my anus. I was wondering if its possible for me to transfer the HPV virus to my boyfriend if I give him oral sex. I performed oral sex on him before we knew I had HPV and we are really worried.
Thanks in advance!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. If you have hpv on anus you can not transmit via oral sex. Unless your oral secretions had HPV too.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
