Just diagnosed

I was finally diagnosed with HPV today. Needless to say, I am pretty devastated. What bothers me is that I have seen several other doctors and they never gave me a definitive answer. That it didn't look like warts. So I always held out hope. The doctor I saw today said that's what it was and prescribed Podofilox. I am discouraged to use it because all I ever read is how it doesn't work. I honestly don't know what the hell I'm going to do for the rest of my life. I am 34 with no girlfriend. I already have a low self esteem. And now add these disgusting bumps I will likely have forever on top of that. I feel pretty alone.

Also, I've been reading up but have become more concerned. My warts are more dome shaped rather then cauliflower like and I read that hpv 16 high risk strain usually causes this kind of appearance. I never considered the possibility that it could be high risk. Do you have any information regarding this? Also, I feel like I should hold off on treating them so I can get a biopsy to know if it's a high risk strain. Any thoughts?

Re: Just diagnosed


I think you're more worried then you should be, i went through what you're going through when i was 18, i had one sexual encounter with a girl who didn't say anything about it.

I'm now 23, and i've had probably 7-8 warts in total in the pubic hair region since the contraction.. and has been itchy at times but not so bad. I think cause with the girl i actually wore a condom.. and i think i caught it, cause i took viagra for fun at the time, and it weakened my immune system..

I have HPV, and i've had relo's and many sexual encounters.. i get frequent tests and i'm fine. I have before, put it through my boxer shorts with a condom.. so there wasn't any exposure.. maybe you should consider doing that.
