I've been fighting with what I thought was hemorrhoids for about five months now. I went to a doctor clinic a couple months ago, doc took a quick look at them, and prescribed some hemorrhoid suppositories, and cream. I used them religiously for a couple months with no improvement. So today I decided to go to another doctor a friend recommended. The doctor looked at them, and quickly responded with " that's not hemorrhoids, that's pulips." this would explain why none of the medicine has worked. The only pulips i'm familure with is the ones related to being screened for colon cancer. I asked her if I could be at risk or anything, and she said "no". That I have genitile warts. Naturally this leaves me with more questions than answers. I've been in a very long term relationship with my girlfriend, I have been faithful to her, and I have no reason to believe she has not been faithful to me. Neither her nor myself has ever had any warts on are genitiles, except around her eighth month of pregnancy she noticed two small "warts" beside her vagina. She asked her doctor about them, and he said "she had genitile warts, it is not uncommon to see them appear in later stages of pregnancy when the mothers immune system isn't it's strongest". He said "chances are they will go away after the baby is born, and we may never see them again". Sure enough, our daughter was born, they went away, and she has had no farther problems since then (about 5 months). So she gave me genitile warts, I understand that much, but how on earth did I get it on my anus? I have never engaged in anal sex, or anything anal with my girlfriend, or anybody else for that matter. My doctor was asking me a few questions about my sexual practice today. I answered her truthfully, but I dont think she really believed me (how embaressing). I understand they or super contagous. I've never notice anything around my genitile area. I guess I scratch my butt as much as the next guy, but could that of spread something like this that easy, and if possible should I take extra precaution on not passing this to my daughter when changing diaper, or basic handling of her? I've been using "condylox" to treat, and it burns like a Motha! Expensive as all hell too, $160 for a small tube. I'm suppose to treat twice a day for three days, and discontinue for four days, but i'm not sure i'll have enough for two full cycles. If I do need another tube, looks like it's gonna come from Canada (found out after I bought it, I could of got it for $60) Hope this stuff helps. Anyhow, I apreciate it if some one could shed some light on how this might of happened. Thanks for any replys.
Info on Genitile warts
you need to get some clarification from your doc. polyps and genital warts are TWO DIFFERENT THINGS.
and, i laughed at your "I guess I scratch my butt as much as the next guy" comment! :grin: :grin: :grin:
Genital warts (HPV) are so common it's Like 70%.They can lay dormant, so you could have had them, not your wife so don't be so quick to accuse.HPV is very biased bacause it affects women worse, it can cause cervical cancer. Men seem to build an immunity against it, it is like they don't have it at all. Women most likely will have outpatient surgery to fix this, and that seems to keep them in check.
I'm not really pointing fingers or anything like that, I am mainly interested on keeping them under control. The reason I said I believe she gave them to me is because the first, and only outbreak she had was about 6 months ago. I noticed my first one about 5 months ago, but I was under the impression it was a hemorrhoid. I've had them before, and it looked very similar, although the pain was always minimum to be a hemorrhoid. I was also told by a doctor it was hemorrhoids, and prescribed medicine for it.Anyhow, this medicine did get rid of them. It didn't come cheap though. It was take your breath away painful when applying, and it gave me a large rash like irritation that hurt to do anything for about 3 days. I think i'd been better off cutting them off with sizzors, and it would of been less painful. Glad it's all over though.
