So I found out my ex girl friend had HPV the entire time we were dating. Never told me. Didn't find out till 6 mouths after we broke up. It took 4 mouths before anything ever appeared. It was small bumps and would get irritated if i worn a condom. At first I had no idea what it was. And wouldn't always irritate my penis after sex with a condom. Make a long story short, I have slept with a few girls since than as I slowly formed warts on my penis. Used many different types of creams thinking something would work. I was too embarrassed to go see a DOCTOR so I looked up how they would get rid of them and decided to try myself. I know it was dumb at the time but I didnt want to go to the doctor. Used a product called "Wartner" I got at WAL MART. Followed the directions and froze them off myself. I was nervous, but knew I had to give it a shot. Whats the worst it could do?...Its been 3 weeks since I used it, as of right now the warts are gone. They dried up and I picked them off. There seems to be some scare tissue skin forming in the places the genital warts were. I had 5 different spots total. Out of those 5 theres only a small part I missed and can still see a wart. But in the long run it doesnt pay. Now I have noticed i have a couple warts around my anus as well. So now Im forced to go see a doctor.
At Home Removable Of Warts....
Thanks for the update. Were these the bumps that the doctor thought were herpes? Were they related to the "dry skin"?
The anti-wart products in the shops are of course designed for 'normal' warts, which are due to different virus strains than genital warts, so I've always wondered how they would work on genital warts. They work by destroying the tissue that has the virus, but I suspect the genital wart virus might be more mobile.
Now Im going to go in. Hang my head in shame and explain everything to to doctor. The anal warts I dont want to try freezing off because it is a lot harder too monitor whats going on. The bumps ended up going away in my pubic area I used face wash and haven't seen them since. KNock on wood. These I have not shown my doctor yet. But since the ones on my shaft of my penis might be gone. Do the warts in my anal mean I still have the virus?? Or can I have un protected sex now? (not saying Im going too. just wondering)
Yes, you still have the virus. It used to be thought that the virus stayed in your system for life, but the wikipedia article says that it now appears that the immune system eventually gets on top of it.
Transmission is most commonly by contact with the wart, but it can be transmitted even when there are no warts present, so unprotected sex is not safe.
