Re: Diagnosed with genital warts but so confused. help
Bless your heart, Bercy. Glad you are still here with us.
To Anonymous08: did your doctor give you aldara/imiquimod? As for giving oral sex, what is known is that people who have ano-genital HPV are more likely to have traces of viral proteins in their saliva. Receiving, it would be advisable not to receive oral sex, as ano-genital HPV can infect the mouth. Oral HPV is less common and less likely to show symptoms, but that is a gamble that is best avoided. If you have warts present, you are contagious, and it will be best to slow down for a bit and complete your treatment. Should you choose to have sex, make sure you are honest with your partner(s) about your condition. According to the CDC, HPV is transient in most people, so as long as you go through with your treatment and don't have symptoms for a few months after, you will be good as new.
