I know that genital warts is an STI, but I read somewhere they can also be brought on by general stress and bad health.
What I want to know is I developed them when with my very first sexual partner, a couple of years into the relationship, and we were both each other firsts, so where could they of came from? :S
He has never showed any sign of them, but I got them, and I know I definitely hadn't slept with anyone else so Im kinda confused.
I'm with someone new now, which is about 4 years on from when i had them previously I'm worried they they may be back, but I still need it checked out, cause they aren't on the outside, but I can feel something not right a little on the inside.
And I've never used condoms with this person as I have a contraceptive rod, I never even thought about them. Am I basically contagious and at risk forever now? It seems unfair to say you need to use protection forever now, where does that leave having more kids etc..
This whole thing just seems unfair, like I said I got them when neither me or my first partner had never slept with anyone else :/
HPV is an STI, and whoever gave it to you got it from someone else. The stress aspect has to do with your immune system. HPV tends to incubate until your immune system is compromised by stress, illness, injury, pregnancy, any variety of scenarios that may alter your immune function. Stress does not cause viruses, as viruses are foreign bodies that must be transmitted from person to person.
HPV isnt spread by just sex. it can be spread by skin to skin contact, oral sex or in rare cases, touching each others genitals. it is possible that one of u fooled around with someone, did not have sex, but still contracted the virus. this is wat happened to me. i was shocked to learn that i had contracted the virus without even having sex with said person. i still recommend that you talk to a nurse or doctor about it. hope this helped
The real deal is if you have HPV then you should work on curing yourself ... both of you and not play the blame game. Our bodies are magnificent and if we boost our immune system it can fight off any disease! Our body was made to kill virus we just have to let it. We have eat right, exercise, no smoking, no drugs in alcohol and boost our immune system.
