Question how to deal with HPV

I know everyone has their diffrent ways of dealing with HPV/Gential warts. I dont really have one right now. I'm making HPV my life. I think about it all the time and wonder what the future holds with me having HPV/Gential warts.

What are the diffrent ways everyone deals with HPV?

Re: how to deal with HPV

i am going through the same thing. i basically knew i had GW for a while i went in to he local HD and they burned them with an asid (painfull) the doc said sometimes they take more than one sesion to get rid of them. there is also a cream three times a week. they go away but you never get rid of them. it is what it is.

Re: how to deal with HPV

ive been where you both are now when i was 16. i was absolutely devastated and felt dirty and ashamed. after about 4 months of treatment they disappeared and havent come back since (this was 8 years ago). its true that you'll always have the HPV virus, but as long as you havent got the warts it doesnt feel like a problem.You eventually build up your own immunity to it so that you dont get another breakout. i know this might sound hard to believe now, but you really do forget about it with time. i hardly ever think about it now, but i sympathised when i read your posts as i remember how bad it felt at the time.
HPV is actually a lot more common than people realise, i know that at least two of my friends have had it/got it and im sure that there are more who we dont all know about. they can be easily transmitted, even through protected sex, and seeing most people have sex, people shouldnt feel ashamed. warts arent very pleasant wherever they are, but i think its purely the fact that its genital and sexually transmitted that people feel so upset. One of the things i found hard to cope with was the fact that someone had given this to me. i was very young and naive and thought the world of the guy concerned. But if i had caught a wart on my hand from his, im sure i wouldnt of been so upset.
i guarantee you that you will put this behind you in years to come once you have been treated. just wanted to reassure you that although it feels bad now it wont always be like this

Re: how to deal with HPV

Thank you so much for your help. I'm pregnant right now so i think im mainly worried about my baby. It seems that everything seems to be happening now. *health wise* Its a very scarey thought of having HPV but i guess it could always be worse.
