Re: MY fiancee has these white recurring bumps....
Hey Crazygirl~ I understand that your pap didn't show anything abnormal, but warts are untestable. Nothing will show up in your blood test, pap smear or STD testing for this. Your Dr. has to diagnose them on her own by looking at them. Did you have the bumps when you saw your Dr.? Also- it is normal for warts to have no itching or redness... they are kind of just there.. they don't usually cause any pain or anything like that. I would suggest looking online at pictures of genital warts to compare your bumps to them. The next thing you should know is that if you do have genital warts (which it sounds like you do to be honest) then you also have HPV, because warts come from HPV. Many people like I said before have HPV and don't even know it, because they don't test for it. A lot of people have no symptoms at all. There are tons of different strains of HPV. Only a few strains cause warts, and the other strains of HPV don't. You probably have the strain that causes bumps or warts. So, if you do indeed have warts/HPV, then you just need to be extra cautious and make sure that you go in for your paps yearly, maybe even more frequently than that. It is definatley GREAT news that this recent pap came out normal. This means that if u do have warts/HPV it is not active right now, and it is not effecting the cells on your cervix. BUT- this can change in the matter of days, weeks or months. They say that if you eat proper nutrition, take a daily vitamin, and don't smoke, this decreases the chance of HPV/warts to cause abnormal changes on your cervix.
So: If I were you, I would see your Doctor soon and show her your bumps. Or if you don't have any at this time, have your fiance go in and show his doctor his. They can diagnose this by looking at them. It is very important to know if this is what you have, because as I stated earlier... it could cause cervical cancer.... (Don't worry though... it takes a long time for your cervical changes to progress to this point, and if you go in for your yearly paps... they will detect the changes before it progresses to cancer) I hope I am not scaring you by explaining this to you. I just want to help you. I went through the same thing you are right now.. and I wish someone would have explained this better to me. I didn't understand the whole HPV thing and all the cervical changes that could occur.. but I now do.. and I would like to share my knowledge with others to help them!!!!!! Please let me know how everything is!
