Yes it is common that doctors give limited info and that is because many of them only know a few things, if anything. Very little is known about HPV and that is why 80% of the population carries it, misdiagnosis and false information. Ok, if you have aldera that is good. I recently started on it but I am awaiting results, so I will let you know how it comes out for me. Before that, I had a few burned off with acid but, that was not working. Aldera has a component in it that triggers your immune system to fight the virus.
Incubation period? I am not sure what you are asking? Is this is reference to how long the warts last?
Warts are EXTREMELY contagious and this is usually when you have a visible wart(s). If you do not that means that your body is in remission. Most people clear the virus from their body 6 months to two years after their first outbreak. Do some research online and read the new tests and findings that are out about this disease. Condoms are your best bet if you are sexually active. Though they are not fool proof because warts can be where condoms do not cover. Even skin on skin contact with the warts can spread them and this is another reason why this virus is so common. If you touch down there, wash your hands. Use clean towels every time you shower. If you have a sexual partner it is likely that they also have the virus if they were not the one that gave it to you but, there is no use in pointing fingers cause you will never really know whom gave it to whom... so move on from that.. if you were even thinking about it
Ok, yes there are options for you if you cannot afford insurance. Planned parenthood provides free health care to persons with low income or no insurance. Go to their website and make an appointment. I go there and I got my aldera perscription for free as well as testing and condoms.
I hope this helps you, I know that HPV can be confusing but, the more that you learn, the more comfortable you will become. Remember only 30% of people with this virus EVER develop the warts so many people have this and will never know. You get the warts when your immune system is low. Take care of yourself. Eat well, exercise and don't smoke
. All of these things could delay your recovery. Stay positive.
