My wife to be and I are Catholics and we often seek the sacraments and pray every day. However, in the past, we both had sex (in her case only once) with other people we were dating; acts that we regret. In our case, we have decided to wait until marriage because that is what we as Catholics believe; it is the only way two people can truly and freely give each other.
Now, she was recently diagnosed with HPV. My concern is for her health and I want to be with her on everything and everywhere. My mind has been buggling me with the thought that what if she may have been exposed to HIV at the same time she was exposed to HPV.
We have talked about getting tested, and she said that if I want to she’ll get tested; we didn’t talk about it any further. I donated blood a few months back and as a result of that I was tested; the results were negative. Is it responsible and right for a Catholic to ask to and get tested?
I pray to God and the Virgin Mary for fortitude and humility in accepting God’s will.
