Dating with vaginal warts

Elle i know what your going through, just like many many other women. warts are on the skin and can be transferred even with a vagina condem..

i just found out a week and a day ago, i went straight home and fell to the ground in tears. theres like no way to prevent giving it to a partner!!

My doctor was prepared to give me a prescription, but she couldn’t do it without my Mom knowing.

If you are going to have sex, you need to use protection, if you don’t then blah blah blah. My lab results were in—and in addition to the lovely genital warts, I also had chlamydia.

This time my best friend tried to help: “Well, at least it sounds pretty. It’s like an exotic middle name.” What my doctor didn’t tell me is that chlamydia is the most common bacterial STI.

And that genital warts is the most common viral STI, and that both are super prevalent in my age group.

The truth is, STIs are not rare and shouldn’t be shocking, regardless of the whole “but it can’t happen to me” thing.

I have no one to talk to about this that has been through it.

If you have sex with 20 people, you will get genital warts. My pillows had seen more than a few DIY haircuts when I saw something downtown, too: bumps. Genital warts, to be honest, but I wasn’t ready to be. See, in high school, I would sneak into the gym during assemblies for fear that one of the older girls would yell “slut!! At art school, there were endless hipster boys and girls doing the same, moving in and out of each other’s beds (or mattresses on the floor) fluidly. My gym teachers had taught me about “STDs” as a scare tactic, going over symptoms with thinly veiled disgust. I was ready to settle in for a month of movies and prescription cream before bed when I got an unexpected call from my doctor.

I am new to this group and have had hpv for about a year and a half. I am so scared of letting myself get involved with someone. Calmly explain to him what HPV is and what it means for your relationship.

I have had no one to talk to or relate to and I need advice from those who understand what I am going through. I also think it's often a good idea to have a short print out of information, like a pamphlet, that they can read over briefly if they don't really understand.

Because STIs could be a positive thing—a force of good change.
