P. V. if you can get that's not a blood test that any more pap smear or swap or whatever but HPV can help HPV can cause cervical cancer so what makes this story interesting to me as I know a lot of women who got HPV they were a virgin when they got married their husband was not might have picked up H. P. V. from a previous partner wife gets cervical cancer now getting HIV isn't a death sentence like it used to be but it's still service getting HPV should be a death sentence but it could be you could die from that too so then I'm kind of concerned about and this is where you guys now get involved what do you have a TV or not HPV or not or whatever or hepatitis C. or not is if there is a presence that if you are given if you receive a STD that potentially could kill you for because you go through cancer treatment or liver treatment or whatever you have the right to sue or criminally charge a person you had sex with everybody out there better know what the hell they
