When should I tell her???

hi, i'm a 25 year old male and im pretty sure that i have the strain of hpv that causes warts. i recently started a relationship with a girl that i really care for and i can tell that she cares for me. i am currently away on business but i maintain a good relationship with her (talking to her very often over the phone). i have yet to tell her about myself in the regard of hpv and i know that i need to. i wont see her for possibly another 6-8 months. should i continue to let our relationship grow and tell her later or should i just bite the bullet and tell her now??? i could really use some advice on this, thanks.

If you tell her now, she'll have plenty of time to get the HPV vaccine. Maybe you should ask her if she's already had it.

btw, how do you know you have a strain that causes warts?

Re: When should I tell her???

My question is, how would you feel if she kept something like that from you and then you found out many months later?

Since you asked my opinion, I think you should tell her sooner, than later.

Hmm...lucky you it went away, mine is on the tonsil and so far it hasn't gone away. The tricky part about this disease is men are carriers without any way of knowing how to identify one unless warts come out. I wish scientists will discover a test to figure if you have it or better yet find a cure for it. The only way to know if you have it is to have it biopsy like mine. I went to 3 doctors! first doctor said it was a polyp and he wanted me to schedule a tonsillectomy in 10 days! I got scared and find another doctor. 2nd doctor was h-i-g-h-l-y recommended, and he said it was a cyst. 3rd doctor said it was a cyst so we'll pop it! So he did and it didnt burst, so he asked for biopsy. After 5 days, it went positive for HPV! My entire life has change! I ban myself from having sex...ever! If i have a partner, i would tell him now. so if i were you, it's best to tell the one you love. The way i see it is this: if you care for someone, you'll be honest with them right? so I would tell her. I heard somewhere that a woman sued her boyfriend/husband for giving her HPV and she won! And yes, i read it i think in ***** (im not sure but i know its somewhere credible). Good luck! We should start writing to Department of Health to continue more research on this otherwise we'll all end up having one!!! Good luck and stay healthy.
