Telling my guy that I have HPV...

So, I think I'll be telling him on Tuesday night that I have HPV because I want it off my conscience (it's been driving me to tears when I'm left to myself to think about it) and I want to sleep with him. So far he has risen above my expectations in every capacity so I'm hoping for the best in this situation. I'm trying to arm myself with facts that could put his mind at ease. Here's what I have so far:

- I won't be having anal sex with him, so chances of anal cancer are near 0%.
- You can't get cervical cancer because you don't have a cervix.
- 75-80% of sexually active people get it in their life.
- Men usually get rid of the virus after 6 months, if they have a healthy immune system.
- Only 1 in 100,000 men get penile cancer from it.
- Using a condom prevents contracting the disease up to 70%.
- I'm not sure if I even still have it because I haven't been tested for it since the summer.

Anything else I can tell him? I'm still pretty sure that I'll end up in tears when I tell him, but...
