I just had my second treatment as well. Mine are very small, and hardly noticeable. My first treatment I went in, and it stung like HELL-O...and then I went in two weeks later and got another, and my gyne told me that she hopes that they will go dormant, since they are so small.
Well they came back about a month and a half later, and one didn't go away completely, but my gyne told me she thinks that is just a hair follicle, since I shave.
But I got treated again for it anyways, with a bout 5 more that had popped up, all real close together. Mine appear on the perenium, (area between the very bottom of the vagina opening, to the begining of the anus)
Everytime I have been treated, the day after it still hurts, and the area with acid all swells, I am guessing this is because the wart is dieing and eventually falls off..??
I wait about two weeks before having any contact again with my boyfriend of 5 yrs who knows, and understands my condition. Otherwise it is too painful to really touch til it heals up again.
It really hurt my feelings and self-esteem when they came back again after the first treatment, I was devastated, but now I just think of it as a routine in my life, to just check down below every day out of the shower, just like checking yourself for breast cancer, or brushing your teeth, and your other daily activities. It lessens the stress and worry about it. Just accepting it and knowing what I can do to eliminate the warts makes me feel a lot better. I dont tell anyone about it, except my partner, and we both just cope with it. Talking about it has made me feel a lot better about the situation and myself. It will all eventually get better!
I have also just got prescribed aldera, I asked my gyne about that, and I read online that it helps your immune system recognize the virus when it has an outbreak, so it decreases the chance of having many warts pop up. But you can still always spread the virus with or without warts showing up.
I hope everything gets better for you
, it's really not that bad, my boyfriend always tells me, "there are many other things that you could have that are 10x worse!"
