Do I have HPV or not?
So, I noticed some bumps on my labia minora. To be specific, it feels bumpy on the inner right side labia, and on the edges there is a single growth the size of an uncooked grain of rice. I went to a health clinic that focuses solely on sexual health and the RN stated that skin tags/growths cannot grow on mucous membranes, so it's HPV. At the time I had a yeast infection and my period, so I did not get treated at the time. I was to schedule an appointment and come back at a later date. Unfortunately, it never ended being congruent with my schedule, so I never went back for treatment. After 3 months, I decide to suck up the embarrassment and went and saw my family Dr. My Dr examined me and even check internally (previously @ sexual health clinic I was using tampax) and he said it's NOT HPV. He told me that the papillae growth I saw was just essentially a skin growth/tag. He said the bumpiness I felt on my inner side of labia major is just the part of the variety of vaginas. He said I don't need to be treated or anything, but he could apply the liquid nitrogen to growth & bumpiness to remove it for cosmetic reasons. So I did get it apply to the growth and to the inner labia side of labia.
I am so confused. In Ontario (Canada) nurses with bachelor degrees and special training can provide some of the services as a family doctor. The nurse said it was HPV and she spends her days looking at STDs, so she should know her stuff, right?
However, the doctor said it's not hpv because: HPV grows in clusters, are not smooth, fuse at the base, and are cauliflower like growths. He said it does not match any of the those characteristics, so it's not HPV. Every PAP I've had has been normal, and I'm getting new pap results in 2 weeks. He recommended that I get the HPV vaccine.
Do I have HPV or not? Should I get a third opinion? I really want clarity before I have sex again.
